Success Story Of The Year: Zack Ryder

WWWYKI. Frustrated with his position in the WWE, Zack Ryder took matters in his own hands and became an overnight Internet sensation. He was barely used in the WWE so his Z! True Long Island Story was either going to get him fired or noticed. Luckily for him and his Broskis the videos started to get him noticed by fans and top WWE Superstars alike. WWE hates Superstars they didn’t create on their own, but they reluctantly started to feature Ryder on RAW in losing efforts and brief backstage segments. His online presence started gaining a cult like following and it was only a matter of time before people at live events started bringing in Zack Ryder signs. Signs the WWE used to confiscate on a regular basis. The ZackPack refused to be silence though. They started chanting Ryder’s name, they brought even more signs to live events, and even started buying up all the Zack Ryder merchandise they could find.

It was getting harder and harder for the WWE to ignore such a massive following. They would have been stupid if they fired Ryder just so he could end up in Impact Wrestling with the full support of his Broskis, so WWE started featuring Ryder more prominently. With a co-sign from John Cena and CM Punk to a feud with Dolph Ziggler over the United States Championship, there is no doubt that Zack Ryder is now a permanent fixture in the WWE’s midcard scene. If his popularity keeps expanding the way it did in 2011, Ryder might just position himself for bigger and better things in 2012. The Jersey Shore inspired jobber has become a legit WWE Superstar with the help of the IWC and his success is our success. WWWYKI.

    What’s crazy(besides Truth) is that he’s still young and has much time to improve.

      I don’t see him ever being a world champion, but crazier things have happened in the WWE.

        Plus, you don’t have to be a big champ to be loved during a career.

        • December 27, 2011 at 6:19 pm

          It helps. My favorites have had at least one run as world champ.

            It might help, but I’m sure when Perfect or Ted Sr. went into the HOF, there weren’t any fans holding back on applause because they didn’t have a run.

            Pesonally, I think due to the current “playlist” mentality of fans, most stars are going to have a very short shelf-life.

            • December 27, 2011 at 7:42 pm

              Perfect is dead and was a very good wrestler and DiBiase was a good worker back when wrestling was all about the wrestling and his gimmick worked extremely well for its time. It’s a respect thing with them. I doubt Ryder has that level of respect from his fans or ever will for that matter.

                Won’t be allowed to. Unless, he like saves a family or something.

                • December 28, 2011 at 4:01 pm

                  That would be kinda cool.

                    If Cena did it, he’d really be “SuperCena”.

    I think me and this dude would be best brosephs! Ahahaha!

      I hear he’s like that in real life, just turned down.

      • December 27, 2011 at 6:20 pm

        Zack Ryder is your father Alan.

          You know it!

          • December 27, 2011 at 7:45 pm

            I would watch that Maury show for sure.

    How much longer until the IWC starts booing Ryder? I’m guessing he will get booed in Chicago at Extreme Rules next year if he’s on the card. By the way, Ryder asked Eve for a New Year’s Eve date off-camera on RAW last night and Eve turned him down…haha…what a loser!

    • December 27, 2011 at 7:45 pm

      Lmao and Eve would fuck anyone. Pathetic.

        WWE has been thinking about a heel turn for her.

        • December 28, 2011 at 4:03 pm

          I don’t think it would work. Eve would over act and ruin it.

          • Capt. Smooth
            December 28, 2011 at 5:13 pm

            Plus, she would get pops for the booty shake,

  4. December 27, 2011 at 6:54 pm

    Honestly, I love him…but don’t see him becoming world champion….like he has heat NOW, but in a years time when he will lose it….I don’t see him regaining it.

    How was everyone’s Christmas? I got the “Greatest Superstars of the 21st Century” DVD from my uncle. I didn’t even ask for it. It’s cool to have an uncle who is a former WWE fan.

    I love how you have ripped on Ryder in past blogs but give him credit where credit is due. Just admit it, you’re a broski.

    • December 28, 2011 at 2:07 am

      WWWY…. wait a minute, I don’t even like Zack Ryder.

        December 28, 2011 at 5:57 am

        Come over to the light(?) side.

        • December 28, 2011 at 3:14 pm

          You don’t have to be a fan of his to admit he is the success story of the year. He has taken a video phone and turned it into the US Title
