Ryback Teases AEW Appearance in 2020

With Christmas around the corner, many of us hope Old Saint Nick delivers us some presents. Gifts that will put smiles on our faces that fill us with joy. In the wrestling community, the one gift we hope for is the gift of interesting wrestling news. ‘The Big Guy’ Ryback teases an AEW appearance. He decided to gift us a photographic shocker.

Over the weekend, Ryback dropped a photo simply stated: “2020” featuring himself, and the one and only EVP ‘The American Nightmare’ Cody.

While Ryback stated previously he may be retired from the ring, recent interviews including one with AEW on-hand interviewer Chris Van Vliet has left himself open for a return. Of course, WWE is out the question but could he be heading to the Tony Khan-driven promotion?

His last television match took place on an April 21st, 2016 episode of SmackDown as Ryback defeated Kalisto, reigniting their short term United States Championship feud which he picked up the win and earn a shot at the title. Unfortunately, in his last Pay-Per-View appearance, on WWE Payback, he lost in a pre-show on May 1st. 

Ryback Teases AEW Appearance in 2020

Will he show up on the New Years’ episode of AEW: Dynamite? Or will he arrive during AEW Revolution in February? As I always state, time will tell and we can only predict what 2020 may hold for ‘The Big Guy’ and All Elite Wrestling.

Caul’s Call

As much as I’ve done my best to be an unbiased reporter here for the Pro Wrestling Post, personally, I have been speaking with fellow fans on Twitter in hoping for more stars debut in AEW.

While I don’t think this would tip the scales, Ryback would be a great pick up for the Florida-based brand. I mean him and Luchasaurus? Maybe use Ryback in Cody’s feud with MJF against Wardlow? Or maybe even he and Mox can revisit an old rivalry? Possibilities are endless and I can’t wait to see what happens next.
