So remember when we posted an update that Bryan Alvarez reported that he believed that Ricochet’s deal was expiring soon? Well about that…. Dave Meltzer via the Wrestling Observer Newsletter is now reporting that Ricochet is signed until 2024. Ricochet himself disputed a Ringside News (notorious bullshitters) that he was leaving this week.
According to the report: “He signed a five year deal when he moved to the main roster and the 2019 pre-COVID not wanting to lose anyone to AEW deals were the high point period as current deals seem to be lower probably with the exception of Mysterio because he got an offer from AEW that matched WWE’s offer so they had to go above and beyond.”
Mike’s Take: Well that was exciting for a couple days. Was really hoping we would see him elsewhere. Hopefully the brass at WWEvfigure out what a gem Ricochet really is.
