Tonight’s RAW will feature a special Triple Threat match. The three-way bout will see Ricochet, Baron Corbin and Samoa Joe collide to reach the semi-finals of the King of The Ring tournament.
Last week Ricochet faced Samoa Joe and the match ended with both men pinning the other. ‘WWE Officials’ then decided to make this week’s KOTR bout a triple threat instead of giving Baron Corbin the buy into the next round.
Corbin and Ricochet have been trading jabs on Twitter before tonight’s match. Earlier today Ricochet posted an image of himself and Ali stating they are “the Protectors of the #WWEUniverse. Out to show that #SuperheroesAreReal.”
Corbin seemingly took offence to this idea. The former RAW General Manager responded to Ricochet by saying “superheroes? You guys are more like the tiny action figures of the real thing.” Ali decided to then get involved and drop the mic, saying “yo Ricochet. Don’t forget to tip this dude dressed like a waiter after you serve him on Monday.”
