“It’s been fairly mild,” ex-WWE Superstar Ryback says of his recent battle with Covid-19.

A former WWE Superstar, Ryback has revealed details about his recent struggles with Covid-19. In 2016, the 40-year-old left Vince McMahon’s promotion. Since then, he’s been building his brand in podcasting and working on the independent circuit.

The Big Guy revealed in the most recent episode of The Ryback Show that he recently had a 10-day bout with Covid-19. The former Intercontinental Champion also revealed that he suffered from a cough and shortness of breath.

“I’ve been exposed to COVID. It had been about ten days. I’m in good spirits. I was able to train and work out today. I’m feeling great. I can tell you it’s going to be a few more days, “Ryback stated. “I awoke today feeling significantly better than the day before. It’s been relatively mild, but I’ve had a cough and shortness of breath. I’d say it started on day 5 or 6.” (Photo courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)

Ryback is well-known for his physique. The former WWE Superstar believes he lost 8-10 pounds as a result of Covid-19, but he thinks he can fully recover with a regular diet:

“I took a 10-day break from this to allow my body to recover.” Even though it wasn’t horrible or anything, the shortness of breath was noticeable enough that I could feel it going up and down the stairs. My appetite had vanished. I was eating, but not as much as I used to. “I ended up losing 8-10 pounds, which I will regain after the first week of training and eating my regular meals,” Ryback explained.

Ryback explains why he wanted to leave WWE.

Ryback stated last year that he wanted to leave WWE after Survivor Series 2014 because he was scheduled to be eliminated early in the five-on-five match. At the time, there was an intriguing storyline for The Big Guy regarding which team he would represent (Team Cena or Team Authority). He ended up in John Cena’s corner, but Rusev defeated him after only eight minutes in the ring.

The independent star revealed on The Ryback Show that he has decided to leave the promotion after the pay-per-view. His decision was partly influenced by the fact that he was not given enough time in the ring despite being the main focus of the storyline.

“That Survivor Series between Team Cena and Team Authority was the point at which I decided to leave WWE.” The build-up to that was all around me after returning as a babyface and receiving a positive reaction. They made it the main plotline of which side I would take. “Then on the day of the pay-per-view, I’ll never forget [WWE producer] Jamie Noble came up to me and said, ‘You’re going out first,'” Ryback explained.
