Ricochet was among those four top NXT Superstars who received a WWE main roster call-up this week. Now WWE is pulling The One And Only from two scheduled EVOLVE shows.
Ricochet has been officially pulled from wrestling at next month’s EVOLVE events on March 15th in Melrose, MA and March 16th in Queens, NY.
NXT will still deliver a top Superstar as Velveteen Dream will wrestle in Ricochet’s place for both events. Ricochet will still be at the shows, but he won’t be wrestling. Instead, he will only be doing meet and greets.
It makes sense that WWE is going to protect Ricochet even more from this point on. Therefore he won’t be wrestling in a ring that isn’t owned by Vince McMahon. Ricochet is also no longer an NXT Superstar which might preclude him from appearing on EVOLVE’s streaming platform.
