During the latest edition of Ryback’s “Conversation With The Big Guy” podcast, he spoke about Jinder Mahal’s physique which has been associated to steroid use by many WWE fans.
Here’s what he had to say: (transcript sourced from WrestlingINC.com)
Believing That Mahal Has Gynecomastia:
“Speaking of tit***s, who I noticed had tit***s this week on RAW, Jinder Mahal. I noticed, they did a close up of his fuc**** chest and I just noticed it right away. I’ve never had that or anything because I don’t, like, there’s no reason to. When you get gyno, red flags right off the fuc***g bat, Dr. Black.”
Ryback continues saying how Jinder’s physique doesn’t happen on it’s own:
“Jesus Christ, that s**t don’t happen on its own and I like Jinder and whatnot and he looks great, but I am pointing out the obvious, that that doesn’t just fuc***g happen from fuc***g drinking your protein shake.”
For those who don’t know, Gynecomastia is swelling of the breast tissue in boys or men, caused by an imbalance of the hormones estrogen and testosterone. Gynecomastia can affect one or both breasts, sometimes unevenly.

Kenny Omega would head to twitter last night and comment on it:
During last nights WWE Monday night Raw broadcast, Kalisto defeated Braun Strowman in a Dumpster match which only instigated a beating following the match. Braun wuld roll Kalisto off the stage area while in the dumpster and medics attended to him afterwards.
WWE has since released this article providing an update on Kalisto’s story line “injury”.
“Following Raw’s Dumpster Match, Kalisto was brutally injured by Braun Strowman and suffered hip and cervical trauma, Michael Cole reported during Raw. The luchador is currently undergoing further evaluation and observation at a local medical facility in Kansas City, Mo.
Although The King of Flight was technically victorious over Braun Strowman in Raw’s first Dumpster Match after knocking the behemoth into the bout’s titular receptacle (but not off his feet), the luchador once again suffered the wrath of The Monster Among Men following the match when he was tossed into the dumpster and hurled off the stage by the rampaging and seemingly unstoppable goliath.
It remains to be seen whether Roman Reigns will suffer a similar fate this Sunday, when he returns to battle Strowman one-on-one at WWE Payback.”

As reported, prior to WrestleMania 33, the Big Show and Shaquille O’Neal were being scheduled to have a match, but that never went through. Big Show would say it’s WWE’s fault, and at times say that Shaq wasn’t up to it.
Well, during the 100 episode of Shaquille’s “The Big Podcast” Shaq gave his side of the story and why the match at Wrestlemania 33 never happened.
Here’s what he had to say after he was asked why he never showed up: *Question asked by his co-host*
Because they kept playing. First they said it was me and Big Show. Then, they said it was going to be a 3 and 3. Then, they cancelled it so when they cancelled it, i made other arrangements.
Then they tried to call back and tried to get it done, and I just said “I’m not going to do it.” They messed it up.
Shaq’s co-host said that he didn’t think Shaq would do it, if it meant him losing to the Big Show at WrestleMania. Shaq would respond:
So you’re saying I didn’t want to lose? It’s for the kids, John. I would have lost for the kids. For the kids.”
