Ricochet misses house show, fine for TakeOver: Chicago


Despite missing a house show on Tuesday, Ricochet will still be facing Velveteen Dream at NXT TakeOver: Chicago.

"He just tweaked himself a little bit in the show in Paris," Paul "Triple H" Levesque said on today's pre-TakeOver conference call. "He's not injured. We just didn't want to take a chance with it with TakeOver being just down the road a bit here."

Levesque added that the issue was with Ricochet's shoulders. 

According to the report we received, Ricochet appeared to hurt himself on a tope while teaming with Johnny Gargano against Velveteen Dream & Tommaso Ciampa at Monday's show in Paris. He was helped to the back before returning to celebrate with Gargano after the match but didn't appear in Antwerp, Belgium on Tuesday.

Ricochet also continued to hype his TakeOver match on Twitter today: "On the plane about to head back to the states. An amazing and my first overseas tour for @WWENXT is all wrapped up! Thanks to all who came and made it possible! Now time to get ready for my spotlight at #NXTTakeOverChicago."

NXT has house shows in Louisville, Kentucky and Evansville, Indiana this week before the Allstate Arena hosts TakeOver: Chicago on Saturday.
