Ryback books first post-WWE appearances

Now that he is officially no longer under contract with WWE, Ryback's first wrestling dates outside of a WWE ring have been booked. 

The Big Guy will compete for the New York area-based Wrestlepro promotion on October 14th in Cresskill, NJ and on October 15th in Brooklyn, NY.

Ryback noted on Twitter that he is taking bookings and claimed that his calendar is filling up faster than a 2012 Ryback squash match. He will also appear at WrestleCade in Winston-Salem, NC in November, and was billed as "The Big Guy" for the appearance.

WWE officially announced that Ryback was no longer under contract with the company yesterday. The announcement followed Ryback wishing the WWE well in their future endeavors in an Instagram video last week.

Ryback's WWE departure had been expected for some time as he hasn't competed for the promotion since May amidst a dispute with the company over the state of his contract negotiations and his place on the card.
