Ricochet said on The War Raiders: “We’re just there to be the best. Whether it’s singles or whether it’s tag teams, we want to be the best. Whether it’s RAW, SmackDown or NXT, we want to be the best. And The War Raiders, I consider them friends, we’ve traveled the road all across the world, but at Takeover, you’re gonna have to push all those feelings aside, because to be the best you have to beat the best, and right now they’re the champions. They have what we want, and at Takeover, all bets are off.”

– WWE released a Where Are They Now video featuring former Raw tag team champion Nicholas. Nicholas teamed up with Braun Strowman last year at WrestleMania and they won the Raw tag team titles.
