NXT recently recruited some very talented wrestlers to join the roster, one of which is Ricochet. It’s hard not to pay attention to Ricochet when he’s in the ring, because he’s constantly busting out impressive moves and USA Today writer Brian Truitt couldn’t help but comment on his Rock Bottom Flip after watching Richochet in the ring at a recent NXT live event.

The tweet caught the attention of The Rock himself, and The Great One had high praise for the NXT star.
Not only did he say that Ricochet will usher in a new era of wrestling, he also predicted that he’ll be a future champion.
He’s the man! Love the stuff King is doing and will no doubt be the leader in ushering in a new era of our wrestling business. Future champ.

Only time will tell whether or not The Rock’s prediction will come true, but most fans seem to agree that Ricochet lives up to the hype, so it’s probably only a matter of time before he wins championship gold.
