New NXT Superstar Ricochet was interviewed by WWE.com, where he discussed his arrival in WWE and his experiences so far. “The One and Only” also god the nod from The Rock on Twitter.
Ricochet is first asked to elaborate on how he felt at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans:
It was honestly amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to debut. And just to be at WrestleMania and experience the whole weekend was a dream come true.
He was asked how much he has had to adjust his life after joining NXT:
It’s really not been difficult at all. Maybe because everyone at the WWE Performance Center, from the talent to the coaches, have been super cool and have helped me with everything. I can’t thank them enough.
Ricochet explains what it was like on his first day, despite working against many current NXT Superstars in the past:
Oh, it was wild. Yeah, I’ve been friends with a lot of the NXT competitors for years, but just walking into the Performance Center alone is intimidating. Not only is it intimidating, but I have to try and keep up expectations I had made for myself before. Luckily, everyone here has been willing to help with any troubles I’ve had.
Ricochet discusses his upbringing:
I was born in Alton, Ill., and moved to Paducah, Ky., when I was 3 years old. I lived in Kentucky until I moved to Florida in 2015. We never had the most money, but my parents always did their best to take care of me and my brother. I had a really small but tight group of friends, and we would just ride our bikes all day after school and play video games, or we would actually wrestle out in the backyard. Those were good times, and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
On what attracted him to the world of sports entertainment:
I had been a fan since I can remember. I started training when I was 14, and my debut match was actually on my birthday, Oct. 11, 2003. So, as of this year, I will have wrestled for half my life. (Laughs) That’s pretty wild when I think about it.
