5 reasons why Ricochet should go to 205 Live
Would Ricochet fare better at 205 Live?
No, please put those pitchforks away! When it comes to Ricochet, there are two ways his time in WWE could go. He could just follow the mold, go through some feuds in NXT and win a championship or two before getting dumped onto the main roster to fend for himself. Or, he could be that shining light in the relative darkness that is 205 Live. Just, hear me out.
Without a doubt, there are a lot of reasons why Ricochet would be a good fit for the main roster. He's unlike any other attraction that either Raw or SmackDown currently boast, and could definitely act as an interesting player post-Wrestlemania, or even SummerSlam 2018.
However, as you will see in this article, 205 Live needs Ricochet far more than any other entity in WWE. More importantly, to a very large extent, Ricochet needs to go to 205 Live.
#5 205 Live needs a savior
205 Live has no champion, no consistently gripping storylines, no faith from either the audience or management. 205 Live is in dire straights as of March 2018. WWE's experiment with a cruiserweight specific show has been one desperate shot in the dark. Superstars like Mustafa Ali, Neville and Cedric Alexander have cultivated niche fan followings, and there is no doubt that the quality of matches is stellar every week.
However, without the larger than life characters that WWE has been able to create on the main roster and NXT, 205 Live has been dragging along rather than flourishing. The show needs a rejuvenation of some sort, and an injection of Ricochet could be exactly the fix that WWE is looking for.
