Top 3 Performers of NXT (February 13, 2019)
- Who were the top 3 of NXT this week? (February 13, 2019)
Ricochet has set NXT aflame since joining the WWE's developmental program. He's already had great programs with Lio Rush, the Velveteen Dream, Adam Cole, Pete Dunne and Johnny Gargano as well as being a part of the incredible 6 man ladder match for the North American title.
Ricochet's main antagonist in NXT has undoubtedly been Adam Cole, as Ricochet took the North American title from the leader of the Undisputed Era at Takeover: Chicago.
Ricochet also faced Cole and the rest of the Undisputed Era at Takeover: War Games 2 last year. Ricochet and Cole have sensational match after sensational match, and this was no exception.
The psychology of this fight was based around Ricochet suffering an injury to his left leg towards the start of the match. The rest of the match seemed to focus on Cole targeting the leg against Ricochet trying to mount an offence while dealing with using one leg to balance.
While Ricochet would go on to defeat Cole and seemingly establish himself as next in line for the NXT North American title after Johnny Gargano faces Velveteen Dream, he would be on the receiving end of a post fight beat down by the rest of the Undisputed Era, suggesting that the feud between them is not over.Published 15 Feb 2019, 07:00 IST
