Ricochet Makes In Ring Debut During Tonight's NXT Tapings

Ricochet has stepped foot in a WWE ring for the first time tonight.

At tonight's NXT tapings, Ricochet, using that name, defeated Fabian Aichner with a 630. This comes after he was spotted last week at NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia and a few weeks after joining the Performance Center.

Triple H also wrote about the impending debut on Twitter:

There had been questions if Ricochet would keep the name he's been using in the independent scene for years, since WWE usually likes to give people new names. He has been identified so far in WWE under his given name, Trevor "Ricochet" Mann. But with his debut tonight, it seems like he'll be keeping his name, at least for right now.

Ricochet has traveled all over the world for various promotions since his wrestling debut in 2003. In the last couple of years, he's worked for PWG, New Japan Pro Wrestling and Lucha Underground. In New Japan, he won the Best of the Super Juniors tournament in 2014 and has held the IWGP Jr. Tag Team titles three times, twice with Matt Sydal and once with Ryusuke Taguchi.
