Ricochet’s WWE Future: Will He Stay or Go?

The One Big Thing

Ricochet’s WWE contract is set to expire this summer, and recent events on WWE Raw have left fans wondering about his future with the company. The June 10 episode saw Ricochet brutally attacked by Bron Breakker and taken away in an ambulance, with his real-life fiancée Samantha Irvin crying by his side.

Key Takeaways

  • Ricochet was recently written off WWE television after signaling that he would not be renewing his contract.
  • WWE left the door open for Ricochet to return for revenge on Breakker, but the angle could also serve as a complete write-off.
  • WWE posted an update stating that Ricochet had suffered injuries and would be out of action for “an undisclosed amount of time.”

The Latest

Dave Meltzer provided an update on Ricochet’s future in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter:

“There is enough time that they could bring him back for a different ending. And the reality is, people can also change their mind. WWE was not wanting to lose him, obviously, and the angle was done to give him a great reason to return if he had second thoughts.”

Insider Insight

An unnamed WWE star noted to Meltzer that the angle seemed “way too elaborate” for someone leaving, especially with Irvin’s involvement, although they were also under the impression that Ricochet was departing.

Why It Matters

Ricochet’s potential departure from WWE could have significant implications for both the company and the wrestler himself. As a highly talented performer, Ricochet’s absence would be felt in WWE’s mid-card and upper mid-card scenes. Additionally, his potential move to AEW or another promotion could shake up the professional wrestling landscape.

Looking Ahead

As Ricochet’s contract expiration looms, fans and industry insiders alike will be keeping a close eye on developments. Will Ricochet ultimately decide to stay with WWE, or will he pursue new opportunities elsewhere? Only time will tell.
