PWTorch reported exclusive comments from WWE SmackDown General Manager Booker T as to whether or not rising star and Hell In A Cell PPV headliner Ryback has backstage support from the rest of the WWE locker room.
Said Booker about Ryback and the boys in the back giving him their blessings: “Definitely, I think the locker room is rooting for him … He knows what the respect issue is in the business. He knows what that really, really means, and how far he’s going to go or not go (based on respect).”
Booker continued: “He’s a humble kid. I do think the locker room is pulling for him to do well … The tale is going to be told after he goes out there in the big main event slot … If he can pull that match up and pull that match together. If he can do that, his stock is going to go way up. If he goes out there and flops, it’s going to go way down. So, I look forward to Ryback going out there and being able to pull the job off. I really think he can get it done.”
