Who's Next? Who Cares?

Ryback (from WWE)

By now we've all figured out that Ryback is getting the Goldberg treatment.  Week after week for about two months, we've seen the artist formerly known as Skip Sheffield run through the competition.  At first, I was fine with his annihilation of local talent.  But now it's getting a bit boring.

We've seen him on pay per view (against AAPW's Heath "Jay" Hatton and Ace "Aaron Relic" Hawkins), as well as on Raw and SmackDown, squash opponent after opponent in usually three minutes or less.  Honestly I don't know what his record is at this point, but I do think it's time for him to meet someone a little higher on the food chain.

Tensai did his squashes with guys like Alex Riley and R-Truth and even holds pin fall victories over John Cena and WWE champion CM Punk.  His momentum has since cooled, especially after coming out on the losing end against Cena on the most recent episode of Raw.

But back to Ryback.  I think the most notable name he's beaten is Camacho, and I'm not even sure how "notable" that should be considered.  I'm not suggesting he be in there with Cody Rhodes, Dolph Ziggler, or Daniel Bryan, but why not give him some competition in the form of David Otunga (yeah, I said it), Drew McIntyre, or even "baby Batista" Mason Ryan?  I don't remember it clearly, but I don't think Goldberg spent this much time beating "ham and eggers".  (sorry Heath and Ace)

What do you think?  Are you bored watching Ryback beat jobber after jobber?  It's been two months, and we as wrestling fans have short attention spans these days.  Like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, and please subscribe to the YouTube channel!
