Ricochet walked into Phoenix’s Talking Stick Casino Resort Arena as NXT North American Champion. Johnny Gargano eventually took Ricochet’s title after a hard-fought battle. However, Ricochet isn’t seeing that as a setback at all.
The Mirror recently spoke to The One And Only where he described his NXT North American Title loss as a blessing in a way. Now he has the freedom to do even more with the flexibility to go many different directions.
“Honestly, that’s kind of the beauty with losing the title, now anything is open. Whether I want to go for [NXT Champion] Tommaso [Ciampa], whether I want to go for Johnny [Gargano]… anything is real. I don’t see that as a setback, I see it as a step forward. An evolution of Ricochet.”
“As soon as I get an opportunity, whether it’s for the NXT Championship, the North American Championship, and the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is coming up soon, so whether it’s the NXT Tag Team Championship… that’s the beauty within losing, it’s like an open world.
There’sso many avenues I can go down.”
You never know how soon it might be before Ricochet is going after a much bigger title in WWE. He has all the makings of a big Superstar. At this point, we have only begun to see what Ricochet is capable of.
