Ricochet seemed to be on a meteoric rise in WWE in 2019 when he made his main roster debut. He was a frequently-featured Superstar on WWE TV and even competed for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship at WrestleMania 35 alongside Aleister Black.

Post-WrestleMania 35, the duo were split by the WWE Draft - with Aleister Black going to SmackDown and Ricochet going to RAW. Ricochet's singles career in WWE kickstarted in a big way, and within a few months, he had already won his first Championship on the main roster.

Facing Samoa Joe at WWE Stomping Grounds, Ricochet defeated Samoa Joe to capture the United States Championship. When he went backstage, he was given a standing ovation by his fellow WWE stars, and Triple H embraced him in a "proud father"-like moment.

This was very much a part of the Stomping Grounds pay-per-view, and the reaction backstage seemed genuine. Ricochet cut a promo soon after, stating how overwhelmed he was with the response:

However, Ricochet's reign as WWE United States Champion wasn't long as he lost it to AJ Styles in the next pay-per-view Extreme Rules.
