WWE passed on him...
The Future of Flight won't be in a WWE ring any time soon. WWE has reportedly decided not to offer him a deal after a tryout at the Performance Center. Even though his ring work was described as "excellent", it's mostly due to bad timing. He received praise from those who judge the talent at tryouts but it was decided that WWE had too many wrestlers of his size in developmental. It was also decided the WWE had reached their limit of high flyers.
When he arrived for the tryout, younger wrestlers were excited to see him and treated him like a big deal, but WWE didn't know very much about him. That alone was a strike against him.
NXT producer and agent Jamie Noble told officials that Ricochet is special but his support didn't do much to help him.
