What’s the story?

Zack Ryder has taken to social media so as to hype his upcoming match against Mojo Rawley.

Ryder noted that the WWE has big plans for Rawley, however, he’s here to put those plans on hold and win the WWE United States Championship—

In case you didn’t know…

Zack Ryder famously defeated Dolph Ziggler on December 18th, 2011 to win the WWE United States Championship.

Ryder has time and again described the aforementioned moment as one of the greatest in his career, right up there with his Intercontinental Championship victory in a multi-person ladder match at Wrestlemania 32.

The heart of the matter

Zack Ryder recalled his United States title win back in 2011, and asserted that he isn’t the just-happy-to-be-here ‘Broski’ who goofs around on YouTube anymore. Ryder stated—

“I’m a 32-year-old man, who’s been here for too damn long, has worked too damn hard, for too damn little. I am sick and tired of always being the underdog; I am sick and tired of always taking one step forward and two steps back; I am sick and tired of always being sick and tired.”

Furthermore, Ryder explained that the only person to blame for all that is himself, and he’s the only one who can change his situation. Ryder continued how he understands that the WWE has big plans for Mojo Rawley, but the former has his own plans—that is to win the tournament finals and the United States title at the Royal Rumble.

What’s next?

The opening round of the WWE United States Championship tournament concludes on the upcoming episode of SmackDown Live as Zack Ryder competes against Mojo Rawley. 


The finals of the US title tournament transpire at the WWE’s Royal Rumble PPV which will take place at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on January 28th.

Author’s take

Well, Zack Ryder has every right in the world to be sick and tired of his career trajectory.

However, given how management is high on Mojo Rawley as a solid mid-card Superstar, the odds are currently stacked against Ryder. In this battle of the former Hype Bros, whose side are you on? Sound off in the comments!
