WWE Intercontinental Champion Ricochet isn’t backstage at tonight’s WWE SmackDown TV tapings.
The WWE SmackDown Superstar took to Twitter earlier today to announce that he’s been given some time off this weekend and will be spending it with his son. Ricochet also thanked WWE for giving him the weekend off. He said,
“A champion not only defends his title in the ring, he defends & protects his family.
Thank you @WWE for giving this champion some time to spend with my son this weekend. After whooping Los Lotharios on Wrestlemania Smackdown, some R&R with MY champ is exactly what I need.”
Your Intercontinental Champ won’t be at Smackdown today, but I will be back next week, better than ever! ♥️🙏🏽 https://t.co/xdUDThhp9a
