As noted a few days ago, Ryback is likely done with the company and it’ll probably just be a case of WWE just letting his contract expire rather than releasing him. There were people aware about Ryback being on the outs with the company on the day before Payback but they went ahead with the Ryback vs. Kalisto match since it was already advertised.
Despite Ryback’s claim that this was not about money, he and WWE were pretty far apart on money during renewal talks and there were other things that he wanted that Vince McMahon was not going to bend on. Ryback had talked publicly several months ago about wanting a tour bus on the road and he wanted road expenses paid. The irony is, this a very similar situation rival & former WWE star, CM Punk was in a few years ago before he left the first time. In WWE, wrestlers pay for their hotel and rental car (with some exceptions like WrestleMania week). Ryback also wanted his contract guaranteed so that if he got released then he would still be paid for the remainder of the contract.
Cameron, who was originally not on the list of names to be released, was released after she tweeted support to Ryback.
