Ricochet is viewed as one of the best in-ring competitors in WWE. The super athletic star has garnered a solid fanbase thanks to his dedication to his craft. Ricochet goes to extra lengths and puts his body on the line for the entertainment of fans. That being said, it appears WWE was criticized for underutilizing him.
Ricochet joined Vince McMahon’s company back in 2018 after spending several years in numerous promotions such as Lucha Underground and more. Ricochet has won the Intercontinental Championship, the United States Title, and the North American Championship so far.
However, despite all his accomplishments, many fans feel WWE just hasn’t used Ricochet to the best of his abilities. While speaking on Keepin’ It 100, Konnan talked about Ricochet’s current status in WWE.
Konnan noted that Ricochet is an incredibly talented professional wrestler, who is just behind Rey Mysterio in terms of being a high flyer. He would then proceed to criticize WWE for underutilizing Ricochet.
“Here’s the thing with Trevor [Ricochet]. When I was working with him in Lucha Underground, bro, they need to let him loose. There’s nobody in NXT or any of the two brands that can do what he can do. He does some incredible s***. And I always said that after Rey [Mysterio], he’d be the next great high flyer. And they have corralled him in, you know, and he can do really cool s***.
Let him loose. That’s what I would do. There’s really good basis there that would make him look good and help him. And number two, he needs to get better at his promos. But he’s great. But believe me when I say this Disco, they’re underutilizing him. This guys is a incredible incredible talent.”
Ricochet will be squaring off against Logan Paul in a highly anticipated matchup at the WWE SummerSlam Premium Live Event next month. We will have to wait and see how the match will be received by fans.
