WWE Pulls Ricochet From EVOLVE Match; New NXT Talent Replaces Him

Published

Ricochet

WWE has announced that Ricochet will no longer be performing at the upcoming EVOLVE Wrestling show, which he was previously advertised for.

Ricochet was originally scheduled to face Orange Cassidy at EVOLVE 123 and then team up with the Street Profits against Shane Strickland, Joe Gacy, and Eddie Kingston at EVOLVE 124, however, that will no longer be happening.


WWE has pulled Ricochet from the matches and revealed that he will be being replaced by the new North American Champion, The Velveteen Dream in both matches.

However, Ricochet will still be appearing for meet and greet sessions prior to both shows, so fans who had hoped to see the highflying wrestler won’t be disappointed. This has likely happened due to Ricochet’s involvement with the main roster, as EVOLVE’s relationship with WWE is to feature NXT talent on its streams, not talent from Raw or SmackDown Live.

Drew McIntyre

Despite being tested positive for Coronavirus this week, Drew McIntyre has assured fans he will be part of WWE’s Royal Rumble.

The WWE Champion is currently scheduled to go one on one with Goldberg at the event on January 31. Obviously, his positive test has thrown that into doubt, however, the Scotsman has assured fans that he will be appearing and the match will happen.


Drew was a part of CES 2021 and he gave an update on his health as well as discussing the upcoming PPV.

“Like I mentioned on Monday, I’m one of the fortunate ones that aren’t experiencing any symptoms, but I just wanted to reinforce, WWE wanted to reinforce to everyone how important it is to continue to listen to all the health guidelines, to wear your mask, practice social distancing and thankfully we are so strict in regards to our testing that the test found out that I was — that I tested positive and that we couldn’t risk having me in the building around our employees, affect their health and perhaps affect one of their family members’ health that’s more of the high-risk category. But, thankfully I’m feeling good right now.

Absolutely none [questions if he’ll be at the Royal Rumble]. I will be there. I’m following the doctor’s protocol, I will be there. I’m gonna face Bill Goldberg, somebody I watched as a kid. Very exciting for me.” (h/t to ProWrestling.com for the transcriptions)

Chavo Guerrero Reveals Why He Hasn’t Returned To WWE

Chavo Guerrero has an incredible career with WWE, but he hasn’t been back to the company since 2011, and he has explained why.

Guerrero recently spoke with Rick Bassman’s ‘Talking Tough’ show, where he discussed the possibility of having a producer role behind the scenes.


Guerrero revealed that he hasn’t been asked, plus right now he is too busy to be able to give up anything for that role right now. However, Chavo admitted he was open to the idea if he can make money, as he also spoke about the lessons he learned from Vince McMahon.

“Well, few things. First of all, they haven’t asked. Second of all, I would have to give up too much to sit there and go back to WWE full-time. WWE takes — you have to give up what you’re doing in your life to do that and I have so many other things going on with Hollywood and my own ventures, my own cigar company, my own beer company, my podcast so it’s hard. I think it’d be hard for me to give up everything like that, so with me, I just, I don’t know man. Sometimes you just don’t have the best relationship with them sometimes, and also, I quit there. I left there and sometimes they don’t like when you leave there but that being set aside, it’s all about making money. If we can make money and Vince [McMahon] thinks like, ‘Hey Chavo, let’s bring you back in,’ make him money, make me money then it works out. If it doesn’t then it doesn’t. There’s no hard feelings. It is what it is. Everything that I’m doing now is really because of what I learned from Vince McMahon, so that’s the truth. You know, with TV production and camera work and directing and just everything like that is really learned from Vince. Now I’ve taken it and run with it a little bit but, really the basis all came from Vince.” (H/T to POST Wrestling for the transcriptions)
