X-Pac opens today’s show speaking about WWE’s signing of Ricochet. He’s quite impressed by some of the things Ricochet can do in the ring, and he wonders if Ricochet will eventually head to 205 Live instead of RAW or Smackdown. He also points out that some of his peers feel that Ricochet still needs to work on some of the subtleties of his work, but that’s not a big deal in X-Pac’s opinion because all of that stuff is ascertainable while some of Ricochet’s natural talent is unteachable.
WWE also signed Candice LeRae this past week. LeRae is well known on the indies for teaming with Joey Ryan and wrestling against men, and it’s well known that she’s always wanted to work for WWE. X-Pac says he’s very happy for her, and he wonders if this will ever open the possibility of inter-gender wrestling returning to WWE at some point in the future.
Former Mae Young Classic competitor, Jazzy Gabert had neck surgery recently and X-Pac urges all his friends to donate to her Go Fund Me account. He points out that he dealt with neck issues at one point of his career as well and he feels terrible for Gabert right now, especially since it looked like WWE was interested in signing her. He’s sure she’ll work hard to come back stronger than ever.
X-Pac was very sorry to hear the news about Paige’s neck/back issues. She’s still a young woman but she’s been wrestling for a long time, and apparently all that work has caught up with her. X-Pac didn’t like that everyone jumped on this news right away, ruling out the possibility of her every wrestling again, but if that is indeed the case, he’s sure Paige will find another way to entertain her fans.
