During their discussion, Ricochet spoke about meeting with Triple H and William Regal in the past and his hope of working with WWE and/or NXT in the future.
"I would love to be Intercontinental champion in 2017. That would be exceeding my goal. I've met Triple H a couple times, and he and William Regal are awesome guys. I would love to be with NXT. I feel like the Performance Center has a bunch of tools that I could benefit from – all the classes they have available could make me better. I don't have a contract at the moment, but I want to focus on New Japan. It's a super cool place, it's gaining steam, especially with AJ and Nakamura coming from there to WWE. And I really want that junior heavyweight belt."
Ricochet also spoke about WWE's new Cruiserweight-themed 205 Live show and his desire to follow in the footsteps of Finn Balor.
"The guys on the 205 Live cruiserweight show are awesome – my boy Swann is killing it. But that's not the route I want. I want to go the Fergal Devitt route. Seth Rollins. Kevin Owens. That's the route I want to take. I want to work my way up from NXT champion to U.S. or Intercontinental champion. I have goals, and I'm not willing to settle. This is nothing against the cruiserweights on 205, but it's just not for me."
