Ricochet appeared on his hometown local news, WPSD 6, and talked about being billed from his hometown, signing with WWE, and getting into wrestling at a young age. Here are some of the highlights:
Getting into pro wrestling:
"I was having more fun doing wrestling than I was going to school, since I can remember I always watched it. ... I quit the football team to start wrestling and at first my Dad was like, 'I don't think it's a good idea, I don't like it. It's not a good idea.'"
Signing with WWE:
"I never thought I would be here, the fact that I am is insane. I always say nothing is certain until it's certain. That's just always the way I looked at it. ... It didn't really hit me until I had the [WWE] contract and I was at the post office. I thought, 'Oh man, when I send this off, that's it. You know what I mean?'"
Wanting to be billed from his actual hometown:
"They all poke fun at me like, 'Where's Paducah from? Where's Paducah? You should be from Louisville, because Paducah doesn't sound cool.' I'm like, 'Aw no, Paducah's cool, man!' I like the fact they say I'm from Paducah, Kentucky because home is where it all started."
