    Ricochet

    Someone I can't get a feel on, I'm not sure I'd even have him in my top 50 but he is a guy who literally has been working everywhere over the last 4 years and is probably going to be positioned very highly on either NXT or 205 Live's roster in 2019, so I think he's worthy of discussion.

    I think my favourite thing he's done was being Prince Puma on Lucha Underground and stuff like working against Mil really helped him develop how to work against heavyweights that would be seen later on in the indies when he's working matches against Keith Lee. Unless I'm forgetting something he has probably the best match anyone has had with Rey Mysterio in recent years. I have liked him on the whole in NXT and my only complaints against him there would be more towards Triple H and the way his matches are booked. I'm higher on the Ospreay matches than a lot of people as I just see it as them working exhibition spotfests which there's nothing wrong with when both guys have proved they are more than just that.

    I really hope they get him out of NXT and just have him on 205 Live next year because he's not a strong enough personality to stand out on NXT as a singles wrestler in the big angles.

    He's much improved from where he was in 2015 & good now and all, but I don't know...top 50? Like KOR I just am having a hard time imagining there won't be 50 who I think were better the last 5 years. He's had too many ups & downs.

    Re: Ricochet

    I honestly don’t know where he could place. I’ve never really been a big fan and find most of his matches one big blur, but he is impressive and does have some highs.

I can honestly say that I have never had anything I would call a bad blowjob, that wasn't a great experience but up until I started gushing blood I was having a great time!

    Re: Ricochet

    You know what Zero, I just checked my spreadsheet and I don't have Ricochet in the top 50 of either this or last year, so that's pretty damning

    Like I said at the start, I wasn't sure he even would be in my top 50 when it comes to it, but there's every chance he's gonna finish strong in either NXT or somewhere better.

    Not even close to a Top 100 let alone Top 50.

    Re: Ricochet

    Ricochet has the occasional good performance but I don't think he is consistently good enough to be in Top 50. His NXT example is a good example. I didn't think the Dream or Cole match were any good - the matches weren't very interesting and came across to me as boring but every now and again, he'll have a good match like the Pete Dunne and the Ladder match. His indies stuff is hit and miss too. He excels in tags but doesn't perform enough in singles for me.

    I didn’t think much to the Cole match but I thought the Dream takeover match was really good with a solid story.

    Re: Ricochet

    Ricochet had probably the best non-gimmick Adam Cole match I've ever seen last week on NXT. I did not expect them two to be able to pull off a good leg match, and really a lot of it was on Ricochet's end. So so so much better than their Takeover match last year.

    Now he's on the main roster (I think) it'll be interesting to see how he does on a more regular basis.
