Ryback (a/k/a Ryan Reeves) did not appear on Monday’s Raw due to a contract dispute, according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com. Ryback’s deal expires this summer and the two sides are at an impasse, which led to him being sent home indefinitely.
Powell’s POV: Ryback impersonated C.M. Punk’s entrance and wore a weight belt that read “Pre Show Stopper” on Sunday at at WWE Payback. He has been vocal about wanting a bigger role in mainstream interviews, including one he did during WrestleMania week with Brian Fritz of the OrlandoSentinel.com.
