The Rybackflip Is Real

Wanna see something really scary?

A few days back, the Internet was buzzing over the 291-pound Ryback purchasing a trampoline for his home gym with the express intention of learning how to rip off a backflip.

Looks like all that home practice has paid off, because after just three days, the two-time former Intercontinental Champion just made one massive step closer to joining the ranks of the moonsault club.

Here's an actual Rybackflip in action, straight from the Big Guy's personal Instagram account.

It's one thing to be able to pull off a backflip on a trampoline and landing pad, and another altogether to land one in a wrestling ring, but if there's one thing about Beezy, it's that he always follows through on his promises.

Hey, if according to urban legend, the Big Show used to be able to moonsault in practice, what's stopping Ryback from topping recent NXT signing Apollo Crews as the must muscular dude to pull off a moonsault finisher?

We do know that Ryback has some semblance of an aerial game, having seen him drop the bass on Mark Henry with a passable Frog Splash that one time.

What do you think, Henrititos? Do you think Ryback will ever get to dish out the Rybackflip in the ring, or is he going to crash and burn like Brock Lesnar on his legendary botched Shooting Star Press at WrestleMania? Drop us your thoughts below.
