Former WWE Superstar Ryback has reacted to Vince McMahon's booking of the contract signing segment between Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey on SmackDown, which ended with Drew Gulak getting attacked.

The former 205 Live star was in charge of mediating the contract signing between the two women. The segment ended with Rousey locking Gulak in an Armbar to send a message to Flair ahead of their 'I Quit' Match at WrestleMania Backlash. The show will take place in Providence, RI, on May 8th.

Ryback, who left WWE in 2016, was critical of the segment and how Gulak was portrayed. He took to Twitter to claim that Vince McMahon loves making authority figures look weak on television:

Vince loves booking “authority figures” as cucks. It’s one of his lifelong fetishes he plays out on tv. #RyFact

Ryback is a former Intercontinental Champion and has continued competing on the independent circuit since his departure from WWE in 2016. He also hosts his own podcast, "The Ryback Show".

Vince McMahon made his WWE in-ring return at WrestleMania 38

Mr. McMahon takes down @PatMcAfeeShow in an impromptu matchup at #WrestleMania! 🤯 @VinceMcMahon @austintheory1

After nearly a decade away from the ring, Vince McMahon wrestled a match earlier this month. He defeated Pat McAfee on Night Two of WrestleMania 38 immediately after the SmackDown commentator won his scheduled match against Austin Theory.

The WWE Chairman hit a few clotheslines and didn't take any offense before punting an American football into McAfee to get the win. As he and Theory stood tall and celebrated, Stone Cold Steve Austin's iconic music played and The Texas Rattlesnake came down to the ring.

Austin hit stunners on both heels, with the one on McMahon being completely botched. Pat McAfee also took a stunner and later claimed he had no idea that the segment was going to happen. The segment was well-received by fans, particularly McAfee's sell of the stunner.

After returning backstage, Vince McMahon was reportedly "all smiles and didn't seem bothered by the botch." Furthermore, wrestlers and staff who watched the match seemed to have a good laugh over their boss taking a bump like that.
