Scott Fishman of TVInsider is featuring an interview with NXT star Ricochet where he talks about getting to keep his name in WWE and the TakeOver special this Saturday.
On getting to keep his name in WWE:
“It was cool because the last 15 years of my life has been about trying to build up a name. When I got to WWE, there was some rumblings about changing it. I was okay with that because it has worked in the past, and I had a few choices lined up. But when they said I was able to keep it, it meant the world to me because it was definitely a name I put my blood, sweat and tears in building. I built my own name. All the hard work built up to this.”
On facing Adam Cole this Saturday at TakeOver amid injury rumors:
“I feel good. I have been training pretty hard all week. I’m excited. I haven’t done a Brooklyn show before. This is kind of an anniversary for Adam. We are confident we will go in there and tear it down. That is what it’s all about.”
Ricochet has been out of action since late June.
