• Former US Champion Responds To Fans Who Are Not Happy With His Booking
As seen at WWE Super ShowDown 2020, Brock Lesnar squashed former United States Champion Ricochet in less than 2 minutes to retain the WWE Championship.
Then on last week’s RAW, Riddick Moss defeated Ricochet to retain the WWE 24/7 Championship.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Ricochet is the latest RAW wrestler (after Cedric Alexander) that Vince McMahon gave up on:
“Ricochet is done. Yeah. It’s Vince! You know, he may change his mind next week, but yeah, this week he’s done. He’s so done.
This was a burial, without a doubt, like who knows, he gets these things in his head. With Cedric Alexander, he was supposed to get a big push and Vince just buried the guy, and now he’s burying another guy.”
Fans aren’t happy with Ricochet’s current booking and this led to Ricochet posting the following on Twitter:
“Okay, I just want to say everyone should be happy that I get to perform for you all every week. Because at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter to me in what capacity. So let’s celebrate that and not dwell on anything else. #LifeIsGreat”

On this week’s episode of WWE Backstage on FS1, AJ Styles had the following to say about guys like Ricochet & Cedric:
“These guys were high for a moment – I got beat by Cedric I may have got beat by Ricochet as well. It’s okay. We’re gonna get there.
I see these guys on their way up – and just because you’re on the downturn, it doesn’t mean you’re not gonna come back up.
I’ve been there, even in WWE. I was like: ‘Okay it’s not my turn, it’s somebody else’s – I just gotta wait and do the best with what I got.”
