My reaction: I'm all for it. I've been a fan of Ryback ever since his character change and when he was originally being pushed to the moon, I wanted him to win the Royal Rumble and go on to defeat Big Show for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania. That never came to fruition, but I was still hopeful that he would at least get a midcard title and continue to build toward a main event career. Instead, WWE opted to turn him heel and job him out for months, so I was getting nervous that he would never amount to anything. Seeing him win this title and have a new resurgence is fantastic and I'm looking forward to the feuds he can have. Hopefully, WWE doesn't take the "job out the champion" approach that they've done in the past, and The Big Guy can achieve great success with this prestigious title.
