Triple H has addresses the status of Ricochet heading into NXT’s next big special.
Earlier this week, there was speculation going around online that Ricochet suffered an injury during an NXT live event in Paris, France when he teamed with Johnny Gargano to defeat Tommaso Ciampa and The Velveteen Dream in a tag team match.
Near the end of the match, Ricochet hit a suicide dive on Dream while Gargano made Ciampa tap out. Fans in attendance noted that he landed awkwardly and was slow to get up as the referee threw up the “X” symbol.
Following the match, he was helped to the back but came back down to the ring to celebrate with Gargano. This led to him missing Tuesday’s NXT live event in Belgium after being advertised.
Triple H hosted a conference call to promote the upcoming WWE NXT TakeOver: Chicago II event. He spoke with the wrestling media about various topics involving the NXT brand.
During this call, “The Game” was asked about the status of Ricochet for his upcoming match against The Velveteen Dream at the NXT TakeOver: Chicago II event on Saturday, June 16, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois at the Allstate Arena.
Triple H stated that he tweaked his shoulders in Paris and he is not injured. He followed up by stating that they did not want to take a chance and thus the reason Ricochet did not work the next show. Ricochet is still scheduled to wrestle this weekend.
