Reactions calmed down because his journey to the US title was finally over.
Same happened with Daniel Bryan and the WWE Championship.
The comparison of Ryder and Bryan is one that really needs to stop. It's laughable.
Bryan is still over as *Censored*. You'll witness that on Sunday.
It's not laughable. Both have been screwed over repeatdly by WWE. Only difference is Bryan was allowed to pick himself up with a Bray Wyatt feud and only took a few Shield beatings, Ryder on the other hand was made to look like an idiot on a weekly basis, from chasing Eve when she had kissed another dude right in front of him and acting surprised when she cost him his match and then hit in the nuts at 'Mania to getting flung off the stage wheelchair bound by Kane, and then only getting SuperStars matches.
Yes...the people all realized that they didn't want to chant for Ryder because he was shoved off stage in a wheel chair and kicked in the nuts. That is an active imagination you have there.
How about adding in the weekly Kane beatings, on top of chasing Eve when she had made out with John Cena right in front of Zack? You'd be surprised how f-word casuals are. They also took him off RAW for several months as well, only giving him SuperStars, where any pro-Ryder pops and chants could easily be edited out.
