Birthplace: Liverpool, England
Aerial: Ridgeway’s aerial attacks are limited. I don’t think he’s not capable, but it’s definitely not his focus.
Appearance: Chris has kind of a Connor McGregor thing going for him. Despite being on the smaller side, he still appears to be dangerous. There is nothing outlandish about his look, but different enough to be memorable.
Charisma: He’s not oozing with charm, but he comes across as very authentic. Ridgeway is a bit of the strong silent type, so maybe having a manager or valet would benefit him in the future.
Power: He has adequate power for his size, but it’s limited. He will struggle against larger opponent. However, he can use his superior ground game to offset any power deficit.
Technical: Excellent. Ridgeway is a first-class catch wrestler. He enjoy bending and contorting his opponents limbs in various submission attempts. His skills are on-par with the likes of Zack Sabre Jr.
Overview: I always enjoy wrestler who excel at a particular skill because it creates interesting match-ups and inherent storylines. At only 25, he has plenty of time to round-out the other parts of his game. Size, or lack thereof, is always an issue in the WWE. Chris Ridgeway has taken a very smart approach because his skill set is specifically designed to offset size and power. In the end, I’m not sure it will be enough to attain the WWE’s attention. Which is unfortunate, because it should be.
