WWE star Ryback posted the following on Twitter yesterday, seeming to respond to comments made by CM Punk about him on Colt Cabana’s “Art of Wrestling” podcast that was posted yesterday. In the podcast, Punk ripped on Ryback, saying that wrestling him “took 20 years off my life” and referenced Ryback as “Steroid Guy.” Ryback responded, without mentioning Punk by name, with the following:

“For the record if I quit for being fragile and insecure I would make up excuses too. Things didn’t go my way for a long time and I kept going day in and out. Slander is a powerful thing and to state complete made up nonsense for no reason shows his insecurities. I will continue to bust my ass study matches every chance I get, cut promos when driving and push myself for hours on end even when hurt. Thank you.”

Ryback has since deleted all of his posts on his Twitter as of this writing.
