This AJ Styles/Ricochet spot from Raw is dope from any angle

New, 13 comments

AJ Styles is a very good pro wrestler. One of the ways he’s demonstrated that over the years is with innovative set-ups for his signature moves - especially his Styles Clash finisher.

Pair him up with another very good pro wrestler known for exciting and different spots, like current IWGP Heavyweight & Intercontinental champion Kota Ibushi? You get something like this Phoenix Splash counter from Invasion Attack 2015:

Another guy AJ can make magic with? Ricochet. Case in point, the end of their match at SummerSlam 2019...

Or, the rebound execution of the same thing on Raw this past Monday (Jan. 18). This one was so cool WWE’s posted alternate angles of it on their Instagram...

... and it looks dope from all of them.

Sign me up for an AJ/Ric match ever year-and-a-half or so so we can see what else they come up with. Seems both guys will be in WWE on their current deals for at least two or three more of these.
