Ryback drew chants of "GOLDBERG" not only for his bald head and musculature, but for the similarity of their power-packed beatings of opponents. In short, Ryback was a powerhouse, and powerhouses don't usually leave their feet, nor do they traditionally descend from great heights.
For a time in WWE, Ryback began incorporating more aerial offense, such as planchas, into his moveset, leading to some fans online to dub him "Flyback". While conversing with Rusev on a recent edition of The Ryback Show, "The Big Guy" revealed that Vince McMahon was not fond of Ryback deviating from the muscleman playbook.
"Vince yelled at me and said I am never ever to f**king do that ever again," Ryback told Rusev during the show. "Headset off, fire in his eyes, I go, 'Did you hear the people?'"
He then added to Rusev, "You and Seth [Rollins] were my two favorite people to work because you were so open to doing whatever. We would go out and have fantastic matches and I would go out and listen to the crowd."
