Ricochet on his ring gear: “There’s a wrestler in Japan referred to as Hiroshi Tanahashi and he’s form of like The Ace of New Japan — is what they name him, the Ace of New Japan. He’s simply… he’s been the highest man there for years now and he’s simply so good. He’s one of many one of the best on the earth. Even to this present day, and he all the time simply got here to the ring and he seemed so cool and his jacket was form of the identical model like that, and I had truly requested him – I messaged him and requested him, ‘Hey, do you thoughts if I take advantage of that model of jacket? If I name myself The Ace of NXT’ and I assume now, The Ace of all WWE, and he stated, ‘Sure, positive. No downside, please’. He goes, ‘Yeah, I would really like that’ and I used to be like, ‘Thanks a lot. It means quite a bit to me to have the ability to carry that on in order that’s form of the place I obtained the thought from. The wings itself, I had a good friend draw [it] up as a result of I really feel like I do a number of flying and excessive flying, and I really feel like I’m a very good man. [The] angel’s wings, I really feel prefer it’s symbolic to my model and who I’m.”
