Ricochet is currently dealing with an infection in his elbow, which is why the high-flying sensation missed last night’s episode of Monday Night Raw.
According to Dave Meltzer via Wrestling Observer Radio, Ricochet was actually scheduled to face AJ Styles once again, and was the original target for the entire segment that ended up involving Seth Rollins and The Kliq.
In case you missed it, Rollins ended up facing the U.S. Champion in a non-title singles match, featuring interference from the newly rebranded “O.C.”, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson. Triple H and Shawn Michaels from DX made the save to even the odds, and following the match the gang was joined by fellow DX members Road Dogg and X-Pac, as well as Scott Hall and Kevin Nash in full nWo gear.
Apparently, the entire segment was originally designed for Ricochet, who has been involved in a program with Styles over the last few weeks. The idea, reportedly, was that The Kliq as a whole was going to put over rising star, but due to his untimely elbow infection, Rollins was slotted for the role instead as a last-minute substitute.
