Ricochet teams with Finn Balor in his first match on Raw

Who knew Ricochet had a soft spot for Finn Balor?

Fresh off winning the Intercontinental title last night at Elimination Chamber, Balor looked to cut a promo about the prestige of winning his new belt. Less than a minute into Balor’s speech, Lio Rush was having none of it.

Before Balor could even debate Rush, former Intercontinental champion Bobby Lashley jumped him from behind. In the middle of a Rush and Lashley beat down recently announced NXT wrestler Ricochet ran down to make the save.

Why? Not sure, but all four men were quickly put into a tag team match on the spot.

The match itself, save for a few key Ricochet aerial highlights, felt very much like a Finn Balor versus Bobby Lashley match.

Ricochet waited patiently for the hot tag and did not disappoint once he got back into the fold.

A 630 senton from Ricochet onto a downed Rush got the job done and capped off the former NXT North American champion’s debut on Raw.

Is Ricochet on the Raw roster for the long haul or does he still have some unfinished business over in NXT?
