WWE star Ricochet has opened up about the move that he won’t do anymore in a WWE ring, having last pulled it off in 2018.
Renowned for his feats of aerial dexterity, Ricochet’s move set has evolved over the years and he continues to be one of the most revered of highfliers.
Speaking to Chris Van Vliet about a move he seemingly hasn’t used since being on top of the cage at NXT TakeOver: WarGames in 2018, Ricochet spoke about the move he doesn’t want to do, but could, saying:
“Honestly, probably only the double moonsault maybe, and that’s not even — honestly, I probably could still do it if I wanted to do it. But I don’t want to, I don’t want to. I did it off the cage.
“I would have to actually take some time to practice, really practice because it’s just one that’s [not used often].
“I was just asked the other day, when was the last time I even did it. And I couldn’t tell you the last time that I did the double moonsault, I don’t know.
“Other than the one off the cage at NXT, before that, even like in the ring, man, I couldn’t tell you.”
Footage of the spectacular move can be seen below this news story and comes from the main event that saw Ricochet teaming with Pete Dunne (now Butch, and War Raiders (now the Viking Raiders) to take on The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, Kyle O’Reilly, and Roderick Strong).
Ricochet signed with WWE in January 2018 having had an impressive international independent wrestling career.
During his time in WWE, he has been the NXT North American Champion, Intercontinental Champion and United States Champion.
He is set to face Logan Paul at WWE SummerSlam on August 5 in Detroit, Michigan.
On the July 31 episode of WWE Raw, Paul made reference to Ricochet’s real-life fiancée, ring announcer Samantha Irvin.
This led to Cathy Kelley having a response of her own for the social media influencer.
