His "Slow Build" Push: "We're just going slow with it, like you should when you build a new superstar. Things have been rushed in the past. I'm not new to this, I've been in [the WWE] almost seven years. I've been through a lot in developmental. This is just the beginning. There's much, much more to Ryback. I firmly believe I'm going to be the focal point of the WWE for the next 10 years."
Becoming WWE Champion: "I know it's going to happen, it's only a matter of time. I've been a fan my entire life and growing up watching this and its going to be surreal moment and I'm going to take every second of it in. And I look forward to waking up every day the WWE champion."
Comparisons To Goldberg: "I've explained this to people before, it's never offended me ... I was a fan of his. I think was unbelievable and exciting and fun to watch. But I truly, truly love this and have a passion for this and want to be as great as this as I could possibly be. I love money and want to make millions upon millions of dollars, and I'm going to. But at the end of the day, I'm going to be in WWE. I've said it at the beginning, I want to be part of WWE for the rest of my life. And I don't know Bill Goldberg personally, so I don't know exactly how he feels about wrestling and whatnot, but I can just tell you how I feel, and I think at the end how I feel is what's going to be what separates me from Goldberg ultimately when my career is winding down. He was a huge draw and hopefully I can be as big if not bigger of a draw as he was in his prime. It motivates me and I look forward to outdoing him in any way possible. It's never been a negative thing in my mind."
