Ricochet was on the receiving end of a push a while ago, but it gradually came to a halt. Reports suggested Vince McMahon was no longer interested in him and Paul Heyman getting fired from his position of RAW Executive Director did not help things.
Ricochet is currently teaming up with Cedric Alexander and the company will be releasing a WWE 365 episode about Ricochet completing one year in the company.
During WWE The Bump, Ricochet talked about his time in the company so far. He said that simply working in WWE is validation for him, unlike others who need a championship to be validated.
Being in WWE validates everything. It’s an achievement for me. Winning any type of championship can help validate your position on making it [to the top]. For me, just being here, in general, validates it for me.
The former United States Champion also discussed his match against Brock Lesnar at WWE Super Showdown in Saudi Arabia last year. He revealed it was an accomplishment for him to step in the ring with the Beast Incarnate.
Don’t wrestle Brock Lesnar. At the end of the day, it was about a WWE Championship, on pay-per-view, in front of lots of people. Hopefully, there are more WWE title opportunities [for me]. I feel like [this match] was an accomplishment. It’s something that only a few select people get to have. I’m going to keep this with me. Having that match in my repertoire is pretty cool.
He also talked about his tag team with Cedric Alexander, stating that they are making “pretty good waves” as a tag team on RAW.
Right now, I think, Cedric Alexander and I are making some pretty good waves. Obviously, we have our eyes on all the tag team championships – RAW, SmackDown, NXT, anywhere. We’re ready to show the world what we can do.
