Orlando, Florida – Speculation surrounding WWE superstar Ricochet’s future with the company has intensified as reports suggest that he may be on the verge of departure when his contract expires in the summer. While initial reports indicated his intent to leave, more recent updates from insiders like Dave Meltzer suggest that the situation remains uncertain.

According to sources like Fightful Select and PWInsider, there is a growing belief that Ricochet will be leaving WWE and potentially making his way to AEW. Creative plans have allegedly been set in motion to write him out of WWE programming, including the possibility of him dropping the WWE Speed Championship.

Backstage chatter at AEW has fueled discussions about Ricochet potentially joining the roster, although there have been no official talks reported. With interest also coming from NJPW, who are eyeing the former IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champion, Ricochet’s departure from WWE after an eight-year tenure seems increasingly likely.
