Original plan for Ricochet’s RAW debut

Changes were made to RAW this week. Apparently, Ricochet’s debut was initially going to be very different from what we saw on RAW.



Dave Meltzer said on Wrestling Observer Radio that initially, Finn Balor was supposed to compete against Ricochet. However, Triple H decided not to have this match happen.

Triple H managed to convince Vince McMahon to cancel the match as he didn’t like the idea of a babyface vs babyface match. He also thought that Ricochet shouldn’t lose his debut match on RAW, as Finn recently became the Intercontinental Champion.

Since neither man could afford to lose, the plan was changed to a tag team match. While this doesn’t mean the two won’t face off eventually, it just didn’t happen this week.

We will have to wait and see how Ricochet is booked on the main roster.
