Ryback – meat eater to vegan

He has spoken out before about going from being a meat-eater to herbivore.

According to, he said: “I already ate a lot of vegetables, my main thing was that I never really looked at how I could replace or cut down on animal protein.

“All I had to do was switch out my meats, I was already halfway vegan without knowing it…I look better and I’m stronger than I’ve been.”
