The Rock says Ricochet is a future champion.
On Friday, The Rock responded to a tweet he was tagged in by a WWE fan. He said Ricochet performed a Rock Bottom with a flip involved. The Rock's response included some complimentary remarks about one of NXT's newest stars.
He’s the man! Love the stuff King is doing and will no doubt be the leader in ushering in a new era of our wrestling business. Future champ.— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) April 20, 2018
Ricochet responded to The Rock's with appreciation and referenced another move he does as a homage to the People's Elbow where he does a standing moonsault instead of an elbow.
Yesterday, WWE published an interview with Ricochet where he cited The Rock as one of his influences in wrestling.
