– Former WWE star Ryback, now going by “The Big Guy” recent made a post on Instagram noting that “the airbrushed singlet” is returning, which may have been in response to comments he made on during a recent Periscope Q&A.
Ryback said the reason he switched from his trademark singlet to trunks towards the end of his WWE tenure was because it was recommended by Vince McMahon. Ryback also noted that he and Vince later had a 20-minute conversation talking about the trunks and other issues, which resulted in Vince agreeing to let him resume wrestling in the singlet. Ryback joked that he didn’t win that argument as his booking got worse towards the end.
