Ryback officially done with WWE

The Big Guy has wished WWE the best in their future endeavors.

Ryback announced on his Instagram this afternoon that he is officially done with WWE from this point forward. He thanked all of the wrestlers he has been in the ring with, and announced that he is launching a website and will continue working a full wrestling schedule.

Ryback last competed inside of a WWE ring earlier this year in a match against Kalisto for the United States Championship at Payback on May 1st.

Dave Meltzer reported in the May 9th edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Ryback was on hiatus with the company after disagreements with WWE about the state of their contract negotiations and his position on the card.

Meltzer noted that Ryback openly expressed his dissatisfaction with WWE and thought he should have been one of the top guys in the company. Ryback has since been open on social media about his unhappiness with WWE, and wrote a post on his Tumblr about many of the grievances he had.
