Ricochet Breaks Silence After Back-to-Back Championship Match Losses

In the span of one week, Ricochet lost a WWE Championship match to Brock Lesnar in less than two minutes at Super ShowDown, the failed to beat Riddick Moss for the WWE 24/7 Championship on Monday Night Raw. The losses sent fans of the high-flying star into a panic, as he hasn't found much success on the Raw roster ever since he briefly held the United States Championship. Add in Dave Meltzer's comment after the show that Vince McMahon has given up on him like he gave up on Cedric Alexander, who now wrestles primarily on Main Event, and the panic started to set in.

The former NXT North American Champion took to Instagram on Wednesday to break his silence following the losses.

For those wondering, the quote is from the My Hero Academia character All Might.

Fans also noticed a clip of Ricochet walking backstage after the Moss loss, where he looked noticeably angry even though the camera weren't rolling and most of the crowd couldn't see him.
