Ryback's New Look

I don't think this is too "spoilery" to share, but Ryback debuted a new look at the Smackdown tapings. has the pics if you'd like to take a look.  My thoughts are after the jump.

Ryback has often been compared to Goldberg for a lot of reasons and this attire change won't slow that down by any stretch.  I am not sure if I like it or not, but it does kind of show how his usual attire minimizes his physique.  In a business where it is important to accentuate your positives and minimize your negatives, I do kind of question why they haven't had him in attire like that from the jump.  I'd image that to some degree it might have been to separate Ryback from his Skip Sheffield look.  That probably wasn't a bad idea, but I think this is an upgrade.  Only thing I'd do is add some color to the pads or trunks.  All black everything like we seemingly have gotten since the Attitude Era is kind of boring.

There is one other question this raises and it relates to the speculation that Goldberg may come in to do something with Ryback.  I have no idea whether there's anything to that.  I kind of figure that Goldberg is done with the business from an in-ring competitor standpoint.

Anyhow, I don't care for the lack of color, but I think the attire is an upgrade that will take some time to get used to with him.
