Dolph Ziggler and Ryback had an interesting back and forth on social media.
Ziggler wrote on Twitter that he tried to get out doing matches with Ryback, insinuating that the former Intercontinental Champion is not a safe worker.
Woooo the “random diva” even complimented your massive forearms! well the one, anyway— Nic Nemeth (@HEELZiggler) May 16, 2020
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”— Nic Nemeth (@HEELZiggler) May 16, 2020
"The Big Guy" then had some fun and tweeted out the following as a response to Ziggler's claim, adding that it's all in good fun between two friends.
Or realize it’s two friends having fun laughing at people like you. -- 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. https://t.co/dA1Cf84lq2— The Big Guy (@Ryback) May 16, 2020
Prior to Ryback being released by WWE back in 2016, both he and Ziggler shared the ring many times, having several singles matches on WWE programming and many more on live events.
