WWE Career

Even though Zack Ryder does not make it to WWE television regularly anymore, he is still one of the

most beloved WWE superstars, and has enjoyed a career in WWE that’s spanned well over a decade.

The self-proclaimed WWE Internet Champion used the internet to his benefit to connect with fans

and get over with the WWE Universe in a massive way.

Tag team accolades

Zack Ryder has had more than one tag team pairing in the company. Zack Ryder used to team up

with Curt Hawkins in the independents and went on to win tag team gold with him upon his arrival

in WWE. Zack Ryder was also part of the Hype Bros with Mojo Rawley, both on NXT and in the main

roster. The Hype Bros split up on SmackDown Live and the two members had a blow-off match that

Ryder won.

Singles glory

Zack Ryder has often been miscast in his role as a singles superstar but has had two career highs

thanks to his amazing fan support. He defeated Mark Henry to qualify for a chance to face Dolph

Ziggler for the United States Championship in 2012 and went on to become the champion.

Zack Ryder also won the Intercontinental Championship ladder match at Wrestle Mania 32 but would

lose it to The Miz and Maryse the night after. This would unfortunately be his last crowning moment

in the company.
