Ricochet On The Steve Austin Show

Ricochet was a recent guest on the Stone Austin Show. During the show Ricochet discussed possibly joining the WWE and also gave his thoughts on Finn Balor’s future in NXT. You can listen to the entire podcast here. Highlights below: 

On Possibly Joining WWE

“I really want to be IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion, which is now Kushida. I’ve challenged for it twice and I’ve yet to win, but I want to do that. There [are] a couple of things I want to do. Now my goal, I would like to be in the WWE one day. NXT, wherever, but there [are] still a couple of things I want to do. Like, Lucha [Underground]’s still going really well. It’s still going really great.”

On Finn Balor

“My only thing would be, I guess, Triple H just really wants him. He knows that guy’s a star. He knows that guy is the man. He knows that he’s the guy, so he’s like, ‘I’m going to keep him as long as possible until Vince [McMahon] makes me give him’ because he is the man. He is the guy. He’ll be the guy in any company he goes to, so I think Triple H knows that, so he’s like, ‘I’m going to try to keep him as long as possible’.”
