‘Going to AEW’: Fans Find Confirmation of Tony Khan’s Move From Ricochet After WWE’s Latest Update on His Future

In recent days, Ricochet has been the most named man in the professional wrestling industry. In fact, the former United States Champion informed WWE that he would not renew his contract. Having become a free agent in July, WWE made all the preparations on RAW to remove him from the schedule.

He was kicked off the show after being punched on a car windshield by Bron Breakker. And now, WWE has provided an update on Ricochet, which has all but confirmed that the former Prince Puma will be heading to the Tony Khan-led promotion.

On its Twitter account, WWE provided an update on Ricochet. They claimed the high-flyer would be out of action for “an undisclosed period of time”. Something that seems very fishy, ​​as we all know now that he will be leaving WWE soon. They wrote: “After suffering a brutal attack from @bronbreakkerwwe last Monday on #WWERaw, @KingRicochet will be out of action for an indefinite period due to upper body injuries. »

This tweet and the undisclosed length confirmed fan speculation that Ricochet could bid farewell to the Stamford-based promotion. This is why they took away his speed championship and have now written him off television. Nonetheless, there is a glimmer of hope for the WWE faithful as rumors have grown regarding a possible final appearance for Ricochet. It’s suggested that the company could use the high-flyer for one final appearance to deepen their angle with Breakker and wrap things up before he rides off into the sunset. And everything seems to indicate that his next destination will be All Elite Wrestling, where Will Ospreay recently stated that he would love to have him in that company. Also, stars like MJF and Swerve Strickland have already hinted at his arrival.

As soon as the tweet was revealed, the WWE Universe took to the replies to share their thoughts on this update. Many simply stated that they would not be fooled and recognized that Ricochet would become “All Elite”. However, according to fans, this could also be a bad decision, and he will return to WWE after a short stint with Tony Khan.

But not all fans thought he would head to All Elite Wrestling. Some thought he might go to TNA instead. With the recent crossovers of wrestlers between the two promotions, this could be a splendid opportunity and timing for Ricochet.

A minority of fans still believed that Ricochet would change his mind and return to WWE. His wife also works in the promotion and he could increase his appeal and then get a push that would propel him as a main event player. The high-flyer could try to emulate Cody Rhodes’ career trajectory.
