Ryback Speaks About Past Steroid Use

On Episode 6 of Conversation With The Big Guy, the former WWE Superstar Ryback talked about his prior steroid use. 

According to what Ryback is saying, he was using testosterone and steroids five years before he had his WWE run. Supposedly, the treatments ended up shutting his body down and his testosterone levels dropped significantly, which allowed him to receive testosterone replacement therapy during his time with WWE.

"I had a very negative reaction to testosterone and different steroids where it shut me down tremendously. And when I say, 'shut me down', my natural testosterone did not come back or it was not back to what was perceived to be the normal limits, which is not uncommon, but everyone reacts differently."

  Ryback claims he did not abuse steroids,as he did not use steroids as much as many other professional wrestlers did. 

"I never abused them as far as, when I say 'abused', compared to what other people were doing. It was always very mild, but everybody reacts differently to them. But for me, my body, it shut me down, so for the five years before WWE, and I was tired at times, but you just kind of get used to it, I guess."

 He also is proud of WWE's Wellness Policy: 

"That's one thing with WWE, I will say, and from my experience, I was tested all the time and they did a great job. And I love that that was implemented because, and not to say that steroids were the only thing contributing to people dying early. It was a lot of things. for whatever reason they did it, who cares? They did it and it's a good thing, and, I've always, from day one, that's one thing I am proud of them for, that they did implement that because, for me, it, like, put restrictions on me, where, like, it challenged me. Like, and I feel like I've been able to look the way that I have by making those changes and adjusting. It makes me even more rare."
