It was during a WWE house show match in Paris that Ricochet attempted a suicide dive, only to crash onto the floor outside the ring.

This, in turn, set the professional wrestling community abuzz regarding the possibility of Ricochet having sustained a serious injury; especially considering that the referees threw up the “X” sign which is generally used to denote a legitimate injury.

The heart of the matter

Triple H opened up on a myriad of topics during his recent NXT TakeOver: Chicago conference call, and notably spoke about Ricochet’s rumored injury.

Ricochet was helped by WWE officials to make his way backstage after his aforementioned botched suicide dive at the house show in Paris, however, Triple H noted that the only reason Ricochet was pulled from the subsequent live event in Belgium is because he tweaked his shoulders.

Furthermore, Triple H confirmed that the shoulder injury isn’t major and that Ricochet will indeed compete against The Velveteen Dream in a singles match at NXT TakeOver: Chicago.
