Ricochet Plans to Leave WWE When Contract Expires – According to a report from Pro Wrestling Insider on Saturday night, former Intercontinental and United States Champion Ricochet has informed WWE that he plans to leave the company when his five-year contract expires this summer.

Ricochet, who signed his current deal in 2019, appears to be rapidly approaching the end of his WWE tenure. Pro Wrestling Insider notes that WWE is expected to start writing him out of ongoing storylines. Fans attending the “WWE SmackDown” live show in Louisville on Friday night witnessed the beginning of this transition. Ricochet lost his WWE Speed Championship to Andrade in a match taped prior to the June 7 episode of SmackDown. This loss comes as part of a recent angle involving Ilja Dragunov and Bron Breakker, where Ricochet suffered defeats against Breakker on “WWE Raw” and Dragunov in the first round of the 2024 King of the Ring Tournament.

A source quoted by PWI praised Ricochet, saying he deserves “all the credit in the world for betting on himself.” At just 35 years old, Ricochet is expected to make a significant impact as a free agent. His departure could lead to speculation about a potential move to AEW, especially given recent comments from his former rival and current AEW International Champion Will Ospreay, who criticized WWE for underutilizing Ricochet’s talent.
