Ryback Biography

Ryan Reves is an American professional wrestler who is currently signed to WWE, where he performs under the ring name 'Ryback'. He was one of the eight finalists to appear on SmackDown "$1,000,000 Tough Enough". Though he lost, he impressed WWE officials enough for them to sign him to a developmental contract. Reeves started training at Deep South Wrestling and made his official debut in a tag team match with Lash LeRoux against Team Elite. After training in DSW for most of 2005 and early 2006, Reeves arrived in Ohio Valley Wrestling in early March and made an impact by winning numerous matches. In September 2006, Reeves began teaming with Jon Bolen, who together became known as High Dosage. In 2008, Ryback debuted under a Terminator gimmick and subsequently won the Heavyweight Championship on September 15 after defeating Anthony Bravado. He also participated in the first season of NXT in early 2010 under the ring name Skip Sheffield. He has since headlined two pay-per-views for WWE: SummerSlam 2010 and Hell in a Cell 2012, challenging for the WWE Championship in the latter.
