On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that Ricochet is currently suffering from an elbow infection which is why WWE had to pull him from their plans and replace with someone who could get a huge pop. And who better than The Beastslayer himself!
“Ricochet has an elbow infection so the whole spot that Seth did with AJ Styles, that was all Ricochet. The whole idea of the DX thing, and again, I do not know this was a Paul Heyman idea, but I know that Ricochet is one of his projects and I know the idea of the show was for the show, one of the big ideas was that Ricochet gets a big rub in the end from DX. Where they endorse him and they say he’s the next big thing. That is what that segment was supposed to be.”
DX (Triple H & Shawn Michaels) was present at ringside as Rollins fought AJ Styles (w/ The O.C.) in singles action.
Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson eventually interfered and attacked Rollins. The match ended in a DQ as Hunter and HBK stepped in the ring and all 6 men had a brief staredown.
The O.C. then invited the Hall Of Famers for a “Two Sweet” union but got the infamous crotchchops instead.
The babyfaces cleared the ring but the heels made an attempt to retaliate with steel chairs. Road Dogg, X-Pac, Scot Hall and Kevin Nash came to the rescue and The O.C. backed off.
It would truly have been a once in a lifetime moment for The One and Only, had he been part of The Kliq and DX reunion last night.
