Big Raw Segment Rewritten Due to Ricochet Injury
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio said that a few of RAW’s plans had to be rewritten due to injuries and legends not getting cleared to take moves. A huge segment for WWE’s Reunion episode was rewritten because Ricochet is out with an elbow infection.
The original idea was for a fresh face (Ricochet) to get the rub from DX during the segment. Meltzer notes that, while he’s not sure how much say Paul Heyman had over this segment, he does know that Ricochet is one of Paul Heyman’s pet projects.
Ricochet was noticeably missing from the show while Seth Rollins wrestled AJ and participated in the DX/KLIQ segment instead.
