I was almost able to trick Ricky to turn heel during the time he was the guest referee at a game between Me with Tama Tonga. He would not be able to count my pin anymore and show me the bullet club t-shirt. I informed him that they were a babyface-only stable until somehow he discovered they were not.

I was almost able to trick Ricky into turning his back during the time he was the referee for an event between Me as well as Tama Tonga. He would stop counting my pins and then reveal the bullet club t-shirt. I informed him that they were a babyface-only stable until the day he realized they were not.
