The winner of the match will go on to Clash of Champions and compete in the King of the Ring finals. Ricochet took part in an interview with SI.com recently and spoke about what the King of the Ring means to him, working with Paul Heyman, and provided an update on Kacy Catanzaro.

Ricochet on King of the Ring

“Being a part of the King of the Ring is awesome. All my favorite guys won the King of the Ring: Steve Austin, Triple H, Owen Hart. I loved Randy Savage as the Macho King,” Ricochet said.

“The tournament has been great for us, too. All the guys in it are all really good in the ring, so it’s been great match after great match. And we’ve been given significant time to make it work, so that aspect has really helped, too. Being a part of something so prestigious is so cool—it’s where Austin 3:16 started—and maybe it can lead to my Austin 3:16 moment.”

He also spoke about working with Paul Heyman on RAW.

“Before I even came to Raw, Paul was always good to me. Our interactions and talks were always great, and I think he sees my passion for professional wrestling. I’m a fan of his. If I’m on his good side, I want to stay there. My goal is to get better every single week and do everything I can to the best of my abilities.”

Ricochet on Kacy Catanzaro

Ricochet‘s partner Kacy Catanzaro was reported as having handed in her notice recently via Squared Circle Sirens. The former WWE United States champion addressed Catanzaro’s situation during the interview as well.

“She’s still with the company. She’s not retired at all and she’s not injured. It’s a tough sport and we’re all hurting, but there is nothing wrong with her,” he said. When asked if Catanzaro would ever wrestle again, Ricochet is not sure.” I don’t know,” he responded. “She’s very family-oriented and she wants kids, so she doesn’t know if being on the road so much is for her.”

“For me, I’m already too deep—I’m on the road all the time. She loves wrestling and she loves it here, and she’s so good at it, so it’s a very tough decision for her.”
