During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer explained why WWE decided to book such a short match between Matt Riddle and Ricochet. The company knew that they couldn’t give fans an epic match so they opted to go in the entirely opposite direction.

“Matt Riddle and Ricochet — the reason they went short was because if they went long and Ricochet lost it would have been worse if they went long and Ricochet lost. Now it’s one of those things like, ‘Well, they didn’t even really have a match and there was a distraction finish.’ I think the whole idea of the bad finish was at least when you’re going short when you’re getting the bad finish.”


This kind of finish could very well entice fans even more who want to see Riddle and Ricochet have a much longer match. Now when The Original Bro and The One And Only collide once again fans will be even more ready to see their battle go to a more satisfying conclusion.
