Ricochet Makes His WWE NXT Wrestling Debut (Photos and Video)

Trevor “Ricochet” Mann joins WWE Performance Center

One of WWE’s newest acquisitions made his wrestling debut at tonight’s NXT television tapings at Center Stage Theater in Atlanta, Georgia.

Trevor Mann, using the name Ricochet, wrestled his first match for NXT against Fabian Aichner. Ricochet drew loud reactions from fans during the match and beat Aichner with the 630° senton.

Triple H also tweeted a photo of Ricochet to hype his debut.

After months of rumors that he was bound for WWE, it was announced by the company on Jan. 16 that Ricochet had signed a contract and reported to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. He wrestled his final independent match for Pro Wrestling Guerrilla on Jan. 12.

Ricochet was shown sitting in the front row at TakeOver: Philadelphia last Saturday night. Candice LeRae, War Machine, and EC3 were all shown as well.

NXT is in Atlanta tonight for the second straight night of television tapings. They’ll return to Full Sail University on Mar. 7 for the final tapings before TakeOver: New Orleans.
