Known as one of the best wrestlers in the world, Ricochet finally made his official NXT debut at TakeOver tonight, and produced an incredible performance in a six-man ladder match.
While Ricochet did not win the match, which involved Velveteen Dream, Killian Dain, Lars Sullivan, EC3 and eventual winner Adam Cole, his athleticism and dare-devil skills thrilled the watching public.
The 30-year-old high flyer launched his WWE career with a springboard Shooting Star Press, and also moonsaulted off a ladder to the outside of the ring.
Fans were quick to praise the star, who competed all over the world prior to signing with WWE.
EC3 and Ricochet have belonged in an appreciative environment of this size for a long time.

Adam Cole won the match…..Ricochet was the ultimate winner……

With former Ring of Honor champion Adam Cole winning the ladder match, and the inaugural NXT North American Championship, could we be seeing Cole feuding with Ricochet in the upcoming months?
Both are young, dynamic athletes with plenty of charisma, and the two crowd favourites would surely have some inspired matches.
The overall ladder match was a resounding success, with Dain and Sullivan showing off their considerable power, while Velveteen Dream hit a supreme elbow off the top of a ladder.
NXT are continuing to excel with excellent marquee shows, and arguably have a stronger brand than WWE heading into the future.
Expect WWEs main roster to attempt to top this incredible match tomorrow night at Wrestlemania.
