Ricochet has been regarded as one of the best in-ring competitors in the history of WWE. His excellent series of matches against John Morrison on Monday Night RAW back in July of last year raised his stock in the eyes of fans. It seems he has huge goals after becoming a champion again.

He has competed against the best of the best the pro wrestling world has to offer and made a name for himself in various promotions. This is especially the case in NJPW and Lucha Underground.

Ricochet made his way to Friday Night Smackdown and finally on this week’s show, he defeated Sami Zayn to become the new WWE Intercontinental Champion.

While speaking during an interview after his huge win, Ricochet reveals that he wants to elevate the WWE Intercontinental Championship at the same level as the Universal Title.


“I started in 2003 and started doing this stuff, and then 19 years later, just to be where you started and see where it’s at now, it’s just so rewarding. Everyone can talk about how they’re the best and I’ve talked about it for a long time. And I actually thought I was the best for a long, long time, and now, this just proves it.

[The Intercontinental Championship], the US Championship, the NXT North American Championship all that is just proving my point of why not only I belong here, but I can thrive here and be somebody here. This proves just that, so the emotions you saw tonight are so real. And just all of that was because of this one moment, because of this. It’s just emotion, that’s what it was. Nothing else.”

We will have to wait and see how Ricochet will fare as the WWE Intercontinental Champion in the coming weeks as we near WrestleMania 38.
