Fanboy Wrampage: Dolph Ziggler Calls Ryback Unsafe Worker

Another day, another pair of wrestling personalities duking it out on the grandest stage of them all. No, not WrestleMania. Twitter. This time around, it's former WWE superstar Ryback taking on current WWE superstar Dolph Ziggler. The whole thing started over a bottle of hot sauce, as Ryback responded to a tweet recommending a particular brand by saying, "I've had more heat walking by @HEELZiggler flirting with Plug in any random diva ๐Ÿ’โ€โ™€๏ธ asking if we're going for @hooters after the show."

Ziggler soon responded to the tweet, writing, "Woooo the 'random diva' even complimented your massive forearms! well the one, anyway." Ryback responded, "Had to have been the one that knocked you out when you 'forgot' to duck. Still baffles me to this day a guy with your neck width crumbled so easily, but shooters all have their weaknesses."

Ziggler went for the kill at that point, tweeting, "I did whatever I could to get out of a Ryback match, only getting hit once. It was the safe thing to do & not breach my contract. Plus they said being in the ring with you, counted as community service. ps: feel free to google the word 'safe.'" However, The Big Guy quickly fired back to say, "I googled safe and got this image???" and posted a stock image of a man choking a woman. Uh… Ryback then followed up with a photo of himself and Ziggler together in happier times.

Since Ziggler didn't reply after that, is it safe to assume that Ryback won the feud? Not so fast, jabronie marks without a life that don't know it a work when you work a work and work yourself into a shoot, marks. When fans began taking sides, Ryback turned on them and said, "Or realize it's two friends having fun laughing at people like you. Winking face Good Luck in life buddy and try not to worry what the successful are doing too much, it's only taking away from you helping yourself win, if that point ever comes for you." He also responded to a fan calling Ziggler and CM Punk losers by replying, "Dolph isn't a loser."

So who came out on the bottom of this feud. You, the fans. And CM Punk. And Ryback continues to reign supreme.

Fanboy Rampage was a blog by Graeme "Graham" McMillan dedicated to the funniest, most ludicrous and most inappropriate comic book back-and-forths online. McMillan has moved on now, becoming a proper journalist for the likes of The Hollywood Reporter and Wired but he gave permission to Bleeding Cool to revive his great creation. Now, we've brought this creation into the world of sports entertainment as Fanboy Wrampage.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
