Ryback left the WWE nearly 3 years ago. As far as we know, Ryback will not return to the WWE anytime soon, and probably never will. He was quite upset and the pay and the inequality associated with it. He spoke about it on a blog post.
Ryback is a former WWE Intercontinental Champion. Ryback wanted to take time off because he couldn’t agree to the contract at that time. He wanted the wrestlers to receive equal pay because, “The winners have more MERCH as it is or are supposed to anyways so they get that extra perk."
Ryback started answering a few questions on a Reddit AMA Session and spoke about his pro-wrestling career. He was asked, “Do you regret leaving WWE?" Ryback said, “Best decision of my life." Ryback also spoke about the talents being frustrated at the company.
He said that the WWE has to deal with it, “but talent will be fired and lose out on opportunities for future money if they speak up." He said that "if everyone did at once change will happen." He said the following about the WWE reporting losses in the Q1 of this year.
"I would imagine WWE stock would fall further if those who invested truly realized how the core inner workings of the company worked. I quit investing in them after experiencing and seeing how unorganized they truly are. The talent hold that place together, that's a fact."
