The Latest On Ricochet Likely Leaving WWE This Summer



Ricochet could be the latest Superstar to leave WWE as his contract winds down this summer.

As we previously reported here on eWn, there is speculation that Ricochet has indicated his intention to not renew his contract with WWE upon its expiration and plans to depart from the company.

Dave Meltzer is reporting that the situation surrounding Ricochet’s potential departure from WWE is complex.

According to sources, the situation is far from clear, contradicting an earlier report from Pwinsider that suggested Ricochet had given notice of his departure.

Additionally, Fightful has provided further insight, suggesting that Ricochet is “highly likely” to leave WWE, with the company reportedly preparing for his departure.

While it remains unconfirmed whether Ricochet has given notice of his intention to go, WWE believes the high-flyer will indeed depart. There are expectations of his eventual signing with AEW.

The company is said to be considering various creative measures, such as having Ricochet lose the WWE Speed Championship to Andrade during the recent TV tapings.

WWE’s creative team has also proposed different scenarios for writing Ricochet off TV, including one that involves Bron Breakker taking out the former WWE Speed Champion.

Furthermore, AEW talent and staff backstage were reportedly informed last week that Ricochet may be joining the company.

Despite this, there have been no indications of any negotiations between the two parties, as Ricochet is currently under contract with WWE.

However, as of last Friday, Ricochet appeared to have decided to leave WWE, with AEW and NJPW showing interest in the 35-year-old wrestler.

Notably, Ricochet’s WWE contract expires in the first half of the summer.
