Fans and wrestlers both applauded Ricochet’s springboard crossbody from the ring to Morrison on top of the barrier, which sent them both flying into the ThunderDome crowd and resulted in a count out.
The announcers on commentary and The Miz, who watched from ringside in his wheelchair, both had immediate responses to the segment. The enormous springboard spot is captured in video and GIF below, along with reactions from WWE Hall of Famer JBL, WWE NXT North American Champion Bronson Reed, Pete Dunne, and Erik.
After the encounter finished in a double count out, there has been no news from WWE about a rematch between the two, but Morrison’s wife, NXT Superstar Franky Monet, tweeted that she wants to see another round.
At the Money in the bank 2021 PPV on July 18, Morrison and Ricochet will compete in the Men’s Money In the Bank Ladder Match. As confirmed entrants, they join Riddle, Drew McIntyre, and Big E.
