For a long time, many fans have been discontent with Ricochet’s run. With the highly talented superstar constantly losing on television, having little character development, and was truly being underutilized.

But recently we’ve seen him gain consistency as he has been picking up wins and building momentum slowly. The superstar has recently picked up wins against Sheamus, Ridge Holland, Austin Theory, and now Sami Zayn.

With this title win, we hope it is a sign of better things to come and not just a brief run with the title as a transitional champion.

There has been no hint of a challenger yet. It will be interesting to see the first challenger for his title as Ricochet can blend with any style of fighter he steps in the ring with. Currently, no update has been given on if Ricochet will defend his title at Wrestlemania. Though that is expected to change in the coming weeks.

This is not Ricochet’s first Championship win in the WWE. He has previously held the WWE NXT North American championship and the United states title. At just 33, he’s a wrestler that is extremely polished, innovative, and ready for more opportunities.
