When Ricochet won the WWE Intercontinental title on the March 4 episode of “SmackDown”, he didn’t initially realize that he had achieved a feat no other wrestler has ever achieved. In fact, no one even realized it, until a social media follower pointed it out.

In an interview with NBC Sports Bostoncount tenRicochet was reminded that he was the first to win the Intercontinental Championship, the “NXT” North American Championship and the WWE United States Championship, which are currently the three midcard singles titles in WWE.

“It was something I was really unaware of until someone posted on Twitter,” he recalled. “I was like, ‘Oh, wow, I guess so. But this is awesome.'”

Ricochet also mentioned his admiration for the fact that three belts came naturally to him over the course of his career.

“It’s organic, it’s natural — not like what we planned, I think that makes it even better,” he said. “As someone who didn’t get into wrestling because they didn’t think they’d ever be able to in WWE because they’re so young, so far covered in the history books, and I feel like I have some There are other things that could go in the history books as well.”

As noted by interviewer Steve Faul, the Intercontinental title is often seen as a “workhorse championship”, usually held around the waist of the company’s hardest workers and most talented wrestlers. Ricochet said he views all three midcard titles as workhorse belts, which makes him even more proud of the achievement.

“I’ve always wanted to be known for work ethic,” he said. “I think every time I go out there and try to put my all into it, hopefully I think it relates very well.”
