Ryback has been trying to make a comeback in the world of professional wrestling since his release from WWE back in 2016. He previously misled fans when he said “See ya at SummerSlam” after farting on a doctor. Of course, The Big Guy never showed up.
Since then, he’s been selling nutritional supplements. His Feed Me More Nutrition line promises to offer serious athletes like himself a safe and effective way to burn fat, build muscle, and boost testosterone. One could think of the products as an alternative to steroids. Today, The Big Guy took to Twitter to voice his complaint about a new policy he must adhere to in order to sell his products on Amazon.
“It is ridiculous @amazon is now telling sellers that on top of 3rd party testing, which I have no issue with and have been doing for the the supplements that we now must test them for schedule 4 drugs, which almost no labs are qualified to do other than the 1 Amazon has ties to.”
Schedule 4 drugs are those controlled substances considered to have a low potential for abuse. Drugs in this category include many which are known for their popularity among professional wrestlers. That’s probably just a coincidence, but it’s an interesting one. Soma and Halcion are among those listed on Schedule 4 by the Controlled Substances Act.
It sounds like Ryback is mostly concerned with the logistical and financial constraints that will be caused by the additional testing. There is no logical reason for nutritional supplements to contain any of the aforementioned drugs. Ryback has not said whether he will present a formal challenge to the retail giant over the change or if he’ll simply comply.
Ryback has previously spoken out against the dangers of drug abuse in WWE. He also frequently denies that he uses any performance enhancing drugs or steroids himself, and insists that his massive, cartoon-like physique is natural. He also has lied about appearing in AEW.
