Ricochet Reveals His Goals For WWE Intercontinental Title Reign

This past Friday night’s episode of WWE SmackDown saw Ricochet defeat Sami Zayn via pinfall to become the brand-new WWE Intercontinental Champion, thanks to a distraction from Jackass Forever Star Johnny Knoxville. Immediately after the match, Ricochet was asked a few questions by the company’s backstage interviewers and first discussed how it’s been so rewarding to see how far he has gone 19 years after he began his wrestling career and how being the Intercontinental Champion, the United States Champion and the NXT North American Champion proves his point of not only does he belong in the promotion, but he can also thrive in WWE and be somebody.

Ricochet said:

“I started in 2003 and started doing this stuff, and then 19 years later, just to be where you started and see where it’s at now, it’s just so rewarding. Everyone can talk about how they’re the best and I’ve talked about it for a long time. And I actually thought I was the best for a long, long time, and now, this just proves it.”

“[The Intercontinental Championship], the US Championship, the NXT North American Championship all that is just proving my point of why not only I belong here, but I can thrive here and be somebody here. This proves just that, so the emotions you saw tonight are so real. And just all of that was because of this one moment, because of this. It’s just emotion, that’s what it was. Nothing else.”

Ricochet also talked about his goal for his WWE Intercontinental Title reign and how he wants to make the Intercontinental Title mean just as much as the Universal Title and the WWE Title because the WWE Intercontinental Title is important to him and he wants it to be important for everyone.

Ricochet said:

“The Intercontinental and United States Championships were both two of my favorite championships growing up just because the people that were in those divisions making those championships mean just as much as the World Heavyweight Championship, you know? Now, the Universal Championship. You know, I want to be that guy, I want to be that type of professional wrestler to make the Intercontinental Championship mean just as much as being the Universal Champion, as much as being the WWE Heavyweight Champion. I want this title to be — because it’s important to me, I want it to be important for everyone.”

Ricochet then talked about how he is issuing an open challenge to anybody who wants an opportunity at the WwE Intercontinental Title and how he loves to fight any Superstar who accepts the challenge. The WWE Intercontinental Champion still does not have a challenger for The Showcase Of The Immortals, but it will be interesting to see who will step up or who will be named as his opponent.

Ricochet said:

“And just so everybody knows, if anybody wants an opportunity, and I mean anybody, just know that as much as Ricochet loves to fly, he also loves to fight. So that’s an open invitation.”
