• RAW Wrestler Upset With How He Has Been Booked As Of Late
At WWE Super ShowDown 2020, WWE Champion Brock Lesnar squashed former United States Champion Ricochet in under 2 minutes to retain his Title.
The next night on RAW, Ricochet lost clean to Riddick Moss in a WWE 24/7 Championship match.
Tonight, Ricochet wrestled before RAW went on the air (for this week’s WWE Main Event).
According to Slice Wrestling, Ricochet isn’t happy with how he has been booked as of late. He was visibly upset backstage after his clean loss to the 24/7 Champion.
While RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman wanted to push Ricochet, Vince McMahon has given up on him.
2 Time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T had the following to say about Ricochet’s losses on his podcast:
“I’m gonna tell you right now, in losing, you’re gonna build some character. You’re gonna find yourself. With Ricochet, this may be something that maybe 6 months down the road, you may see someone totally different. And that’s the one thing I really think that Ricochet needs to work on is his character building.”
During a recent interview with WJLA, Ricochet was asked if he would like to go back to NXT and below is what he said:
“For sure that’s a place I’d love to go. I call it home for me. It was a place I enjoyed thoroughly when I was being there and now that they have more exposure on the USA Network every Wednesday I think that’s huge too. So, for me, for sure. Any time they need a hand from me I’ll be there no problem.”
