It'd be great to see The Ryback's retort be one of gratitude for the compliments, and asking Bryan to team up with him to take on jobber teams. YES YES YES in time with The Ryback's arm waves would be a sight to see.
Oh my god, that link made me think/dream that Stansky & Rosenberg had a YouTube show and were conducting interviews in rhyme.
"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
I'm glad I finally listened to this interview, which was outstanding. I will now forever think of The Ryback whenever I go to a Panera Bread. And much like when he was on Colt Cabana's podcast, Bryan comes off as the most normal, down-to-earth guy in wrestling.
It wasn't even totally that. Gail's said she was having significant financial issues at the time, and the WWE offer would get her out of them. TNA couldn't/didn't match the deal, but it didn't sound like Gail was expecting them to.
