Many fans on the IWC noted that Ryback looked close to tears the instant John Cena dropped "FEED! ME! MORE!" as a way of acquiescing his title shot at Hell in a Cell to The Big Hungry; since his passion for the business is well-known, and how hard he had to battle back from his gruesome leg injury, and this was seen as Ryback finally realizing that he had made it to the big time.
Doubles as a Crowning Moment Of Awesome for Ryback, as he managed (with the camera focused right in on his face) to keep in character and continue to look like a feral Blood Knight instead of breaking kayfabe.
To top it off,years ago in Tough Enough, as Ryan Reeves, he stated that he wanted that WWE Contract more than anything in the world and that he wouldn't quit. 8 years later, he's at main event level. Must feel pretty good.
Wrestling in front of his hometown fans in Las Vegas on the 8/18/14 Raw, along with being showered with "FEED! ME! MORE!" and "RYBACK RULES!" chants. To play it up even more, Randy Orton teased a tag to him like a fellow wrestler would for a hometown babyface.
