Ryback has not wrestled since 2018 following a severe back injury which required over a dozen stem cell procedures. However, his time away from the ring looks to be coming to an end after he confirmed on his Shooting Blanks Wrestling Report podcast that he is back in training.
I’d say I’ll probably give myself three to four weeks and then hopefully, from there, be able to get back in a ring and start doing some training low key. Just get myself in there to see how I feel.
I honestly don’t think I’ll miss a beat. I’ve been out before. When I had the ankle injury, I didn’t wrestle for a year and a half. Then I got thrown on the road, and came right back after not wrestling for a year and a half. I did dark matches and live events there for like five months, but like I went back to live events, working 8, 10, 12, 15-minute matches.
