Ricochet On Recent Injury Scare, Iconic WrestleMania Moment, More


In a recent interview with Metro, former Intercontinental Champion Ricochet touched on a variety of topics. He talked about a recent incident that saw him get busted open during a Miracle on 34th Street Fight against Imperium on an episode of SmackDown last month.

He followed up on the topic, revealing that he wanted to emulate an iconic moment from WrestleMania 13, and also shared his thoughts on the physicality aspect of professional wrestling, when involved with the likes of GUNTHER.


You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

Ricochet on wanting to recreate the Stone Cold – Bret Hart moment: “Honestly, because it was bleeding a lot, obviously the doctors are gonna come out and check on you. I was trying to actually [copy] Stone Cold, WrestleMania 13, put it over my head, you know what I mean? They were like, ‘No, we can’t do that.’ Obviously ’cause they’re the doctors, they’re like, ‘We gotta make sure you’re ok, what are you doing?’ I’m like, ‘Stop wiping the blood’, and they’re like, ‘No, we can’t, what are you doing?!’

Ricochet on the injury scare: “I’m going on 20 years now, which is pretty crazy. I think after doing it so long, I think you can judge the severity of a situation. Honestly, I think it looked worse than it was because of the blood and everything. Literally, it healed up within days, it was so easy! It was just a freak accident, and it didn’t even hurt. I mean, it hurt, but I didn’t get knocked out and I didn’t see stars.”

Ricochet on loving the physicality aspect of pro wrestling: “‘It’s the thrill of the hunt or whatever. That feeling, I’m sure the same thing goes for boxers or MMA fighters, even football, when you’re sitting there looking right at the guys knowing that this 300lbs plus refrigerator is going to he running straight into you. Being out there with the GUNTHERs and the Sheamus and the Bobby Lashleys and Drew McIntyres, it’s a different feeling for sure. Especially being out there with someone like GUNTHER, who’s as physical as he is, man, it’s cool to push yourself.”
