WWE to push Ricochet

Ricochet is the WWE United States Champion and from the looks of it, things are only looking up for him right now.

Paul Heyman is the Executive Director of Monday Night Raw and it seems Ricochet is lucky as Heyman seems to be high on Ricochet.

Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Heyman sees potential in Ricochet. He said that he is in favor of Ricochet and so he has been in two main events back to back.

Ricochet and AJ Styles exchanging slaps backstage was a good way to get things started for him and we hope that WWE will be utilizing him properly and he can showcase his talents to the WWE Universe.

    You’re right, those are big names but I think we’re moving past that these days. A lot of the big stars have more “realistic” names like John Cena, Roman Reigns, Drew McIntyre, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose,. Kevin Owens, etc. The trend sways more to day-to-day names vs. the gimmicky names in the past. There was a time when ultiamte warriors and papa shangos and 123 kid were big and it was all about gimmicks but I feel these days it’s more normal names.

    That doesn’t mean Heyman isn’t high on him and wanting to push him.

    We can play quarters with how many times the name Ricochet is written in a single and very short article.

    Or Edge. Or Test. Or Hurricane. Or Sting. Or “Ultimate Warrior”. etc.

    Personally, I like people with “monicker” style names, and actual characters. I get tired of the vanilla “dude with regular name whose character is that he wants to fight and win championships”. I like more color and imagination involved. And Ricochet is a damn good talent, so maybe they will actually push him.

    But then again, it IS all still up to Vince at the end of the day. So maybe not.

    You’re right. He should have a realistic name like CM Punk or The Undertaker.

    Call me judgmental but I just have a hard time getting behind someone called “Ricochet”…. it’s just not a name of someone I can get behind. Is he entertaining and great? Yes. But the name… I just can’t get over it…. it’s like Viking Experience was an awful name that people won’t get over..

    He will get a push, how long? couple of months or weeks?

    Well Ricochet has been in two back to back main events, but Heyman was not even in control the first time.
