– There have been reports that Ricochet is possibly injured because he did he not appear as advertised at Tuesday’s NXT live event in Antwerp, Belgium.
At Monday’s live event in Paris, France, Ricochet teamed with Johnny Gargano against The Velveteen Dream and Tommaso Ciampa. The end of the match saw Ricochet hit a suicide dive on Dream while Gargano forced Ciampa to submit to the Gargano Escape. In a video that has surfaced online, Ricochet missed hitting Dream, resulting in an awkward landing on the floor. He was then slow to get up as the referee threw up the “X” symbol. Ricochet was then helped to the back by an official but returned to the ring to celebrate with Gargano.

Triple H did a conference today to promote NXT Takeover: Chicago II this Saturday and he was asked about Ricochet’s injury status. Triple H said he was only resting ahead of his match against Dream at NXT Takeover: Chicago II.
“He just tweaked himself a little bit at the show in Paris. He’s not injured, we just didn’t want to take a chance with it and with TakeOver being just down the road a bit. The one thing with athletes across the board from any sport, somebody has to pull the reigns on them and tell them, ‘Let’s back off today,'” Triple H said.
“He tweaked his shoulder a little bit but he is fine.”
– After running a vignette last week on WWE 205 Live hyping Lio Rush’s impending arrival to the Cruiserweight division, a second vignette aired on last night’s show with “The Man of the Hour” putting the Cruiserweight division on notice.
Revealing that he feels disrespected by being left out of two Cruiserweight Tournaments, Rush is ready to prove he’s at the right place at the right time.
