Ryback has released the 4th episode of Conversation with The Big Guy, and had spoken about which WWE superstar changed his life.
He says that Luke Gallows got him interested in "The Secret". Ryback explained he had known Gallows through Tough Enough, and, as the story is said to go, Luke Gallows went to check up on Ryback when he was working at a barbecue restaurant following his release from developmental.
"Luke Gallows, who was Festus at the time in the WWE, I think he'd gotten wind that things were not good with me. Probably all the guys talking because, for him to come into Smokey Bones, he never would come in there and I think he wanted to see me. And I believe he came in there for a reason.
He came in though and he ordered and he was having lunch. He goes, 'I hate seeing you like this' and I go, 'like what?' I'm in denial, 'what do you mean? I'm f--king great. life is good.' And he goes, 'no, it's not. You need to be wrestling. You belong wrestling. You are a wrestler.' And I was like, 'well, I don't know what to do right now. I can't get by. Like, I have to work all the time.' And I think at that point in time, he was having a little run with Undertaker as Festus. For him, his booking as Festus, that was kind of a high point during that. Yeah, and he goes, 'I had just read this book called The Secret.' And he goes, 'it has changed the way I think and it's helping me a lot.' And so he left me a tip for $30.00 or $25.00, whatever it was. And there was a bookstore across the street and he goes, 'I want you to go get this book as soon as you can.' And it was one of those things. I think I had left work that day and just ran across the street and bought it. And then, I read that book. When I read it and went through it, it was so overwhelming because it made me realize just how negative I was being."
