Ricochet’s AEW Debut at Forbidden Door: Not Happening Yet

One big thing: Ricochet remains under WWE contract

Despite recent speculation, Ricochet won’t be making a surprise appearance at AEW’s Forbidden Door event tonight. The high-flying superstar is still under contract with WWE.

Key details:

• Ricochet’s WWE contract is set to expire soon, but hasn’t ended yet.
• He was recently written off WWE TV through a storyline attack by Bron Breakker.
• His fiancée, Samantha Irvin, remains with WWE as an announcer.

Why it matters

Ricochet’s potential free agency has sparked interest due to his impressive in-ring abilities and history with promotions like NJPW. His eventual signing could be a significant boost for AEW or another wrestling company.

By the numbers

• Ricochet joined WWE in 2018
• He’s a former Intercontinental Champion and United States Champion
• His last WWE match was on June 9, 2023, against Shinsuke Nakamura

What’s next?

Once Ricochet’s WWE contract expires, he’ll be free to negotiate with other promotions. Given his past interest in AEW and experience with NJPW, these could be potential landing spots.

The bottom line

While fans eagerly await Ricochet’s next move, his immediate future remains tied to WWE until his contract officially ends.
