Last week it was reported by those over at Wrestling Observer Radio that as part of WWE’s plans to captivate the 18-34 demographic, United States Champion Ricochet had been earmarked for a big push under the Paul Heyman regime on Monday night Raw.
The Advocate is said to be “high” on the former NXT North American Champion because “he’s a guy who can appeal to teenagers.”
Ricochet is in a high profile match against AJ Styles this Sunday at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
Another Superstar has reportedly been earmarked for a bright future under Heyman on Monday nights, and that’s Braun Strowman.
Sportskeeda’s Tom Colohue believes “the idea is to get Strowman back to his roots as a monster, just destroying everything in his path. He hasn’t been used as effectively as he could be.
“Heyman’s still the same guy who brought you ECW. He likes the technical style but he also likes big, destructive forces of nature. Braun is perfect for that,” the report continues.
Strowman will take on Bobby Lashley in a Last Man Standing match on Sunday.
