WWE Superstar Ryback
So what does the Royal Rumble mean to you?
It's the road to Wrestlemania, this is one of the big four [WWE] pay-per-views. Growing up it was one of my favorites. And its one of the more exciting WWE pay-per-views so I Don't know exactly what my role will be as of now. If I am one of the 30 men involved in the Royal Rumble, my goal is to obviously win it and if not I look to be in a high-profile match one way or the other. Right now its up in the air.

Every Royal Rumble has one or two WWE Superstars that stand out. Do you have any plans to steal the show this year?
I don't see any reason why I can't. I work very hard at this, I put in a lot of time thinking about this, and I'm going into that [wanting] to outdo everybody. I definitely want to have a moment that people are always going to remember and no matter what the outcome of the Royal Rumble. If there's anybody that's here who I would it's me who's gonna do something very spectacular. I got a few ideas floating around already in my head of thing I'd like to see happen, so you just gotta tune into see.
