Over the weekend, a report surfaced that Ricochet would be leaving WWE later this summer when his contract expired. According to, things might not be so simple, as it not confirmed that Ricochet is leaving. According to Fightful Select, Ricochet leaving WWE is seen as “likely” and it is expected that he will sign with AEW eventually.
