Ryan has been under contract with the company for quite a long time from both the WWE and developmental before moving up to the main roster. For those who don't know Ryan Reeves was actually a participant on the 1 million dollar edition of Tough Enough back in 2004 and though he came up short in the competition Ryan would still be offered a contract with the company in developmental.
In many respects Ryan could be considered the Ahmed Johnson of the modern era due to his injury prone nature and his lack of coming big when given the opportunity. I would say his last chance with the company came last year when they gave him a run with the Intercontinental championship and his run left little to be desired. In the end I would like to wish Ryan "Ryback" Reeves the "Best of luck in all of his Future Endeavors" Yup Yup Yup What it Do!!!
