Ricochet was drafted to Friday Night SmackDown weeks ago, and it was a move seen as potentially fruitful for the high flyer if only because it would put him on a brand seemingly better suited to utilize his unique talents. He hasn’t had anything to do for some time, but that changed on this week’s show.
First, he answered an open challenge from Drew McIntyre and gave him a relatively short but fun match, one that ended in spectacular fashion:
I could watch that a million times and never get bored of it.
Not long after, Mustafa Ali approached Ricochet about forming a tag team and the latter brushed off the former. It would seem they may be revisiting a prior story from late last year, one I was enamored by thanks to Ricochet turning in some of his best work since coming to WWE for it. That story was rather abruptly dropped with little attention paid to it on Monday Night Raw. Perhaps we’ll have better luck on the blue brand.
