Wright noted that Ricochet would be on Raw but he didn’t appear on the live broadcast. Instead, he wrestled a match against Eric Young on the Main Event tapings after driving from Philadelphia. He was asked about the grueling schedule as a WWE Superstar.
“Unlike any of the other major sports, there’s no off-season for us. We are going every weekend of every week and every month, plus Mondays, and Fridays and Wednesdays. We’re basically all week every week. It’s a good crew of us. A lot of times I travel with the Street Profits. It’s just a couple of friends hanging out on the road.”
He said it’s a blast traveling on the road and he doesn’t have any complaints. He was asked if the moves he does in the ring come from a gymnastics background.
He said, “Everything is self-taught. I’ve just been doing this for so long … since I was like 15 years old so…I mean everything it kind of self-taught, kind of trial and error.”
Ricochet was asked what it was like to step into the ring with Brock Lesnar. Many fans see this as the moment when the burial started for him but Ricochet says the match was a dream come true.
“That was kind of a dream come true because I can remember back in 2002 and 2003 watching Brock versus The Rock or versus Kurt Angle and all these guys that I can name all day.”
The interview concluded with a question about NXT and whether he would consider going back there just like Finn Balor and Charlotte Flair have done.
“For sure, that’s a place that I would like to always call a home for me. It’s a place that I enjoyed thoroughly while I was being there. Now that they have more exposure, every Wednesday on the USA network I think that’s huge too. So yeah, for sure. Anytime they need a hand for sure I will be there, no problem.”
