He doesn't have fond memories...
In an interview with Miami Herald, Ryback said that he doesn't consider his time with Paul Heyman as a positive experience. Here are highlights:
On his heel turn: "I came in 2012 and burst on the scene. I believe I was the most popular thing. Before the ‘Yes Movement', there was the ‘Feed Me More' movement. I took the WWE by storm. I was undefeated for some time, sometimes taking on two guys at one time. I jumped in the main event scene very quickly and stayed very popular with the WWE Universe for a long time. We made the switch and went an opposite way and took it all away. Not that I necessarily agreed with it at the time, but I feel it was a good move."
On working with Paul Heyman: "I got absolutely nothing [from that]. It's a time period I will not even think to look back on."
On his team with Curtis Axel: "Curtis Axel is a great, amazing human being. Working with him is the most fun I've had in wrestling in some time. The only positive thing from Paul Heyman was getting to be around Curtis Axel and getting that out of it. Me and Curtis go back to developmental together. I'm very happy we are getting a chance to mesh and gel on TV and come together as RybAxel."
