– There have been rumors of top indie star Ricochet, also known as the first-ever Lucha Underground Champion Prince Puma, coming to WWE for a while but according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it looks like there’s something to the speculation now.
Indie promoters looking to book summer dates with Ricochet have been told he isn’t taking any bookings after June of this year. One person close to Ricochet told The Observer that he will end up in WWE but that is not his immediate next move.
Ricochet’s current deal with Lucha Underground allows for an out after the third season, which wraps taping in mid-May. The contract also wouldn’t let him go to WWE until six months after season three finishes airing, which would be in 2017 some time. There could be some way around his non-compete with Lucha, which could see him come to WWE before next year, but there’s been no confirmation on that.
