Ricochet recently spoke with Scott Fishman of TV Insider to promote his match with WWE NXT North American Champion Adam Cole at Saturday's "Takeover: Brooklyn IV" event. The full interview is at this link and below are highlights:
Getting to keep his name in WWE:
"It was cool because the last 15 years of my life has been about trying to build up a name. When I got to WWE, there was some rumblings about changing it. I was okay with that because it has worked in the past, and I had a few choices lined up. But when they said I was able to keep it, it meant the world to me because it was definitely a name I put my blood, sweat and tears in building. I built my own name. All the hard work built up to this."
His Twitter shout-out from The Rock back in April:
"I don't know how much of a fan he is or not. I'm going to take it and run with it because he is a favorite wrestler. It means out of this world."
Preparing for Saturday's match with Cole amid reports of an arm injury:
"I feel good. I have been training pretty hard all week. I'm excited. I haven't done a Brooklyn show before. This is kind of an anniversary for Adam. We are confident we will go in there and tear it down. That is what it's all about."
