As Ricochet’s contract approaches its expiration in the summer of 2024, his storyline on WWE television took a decisive turn during this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW. Many speculate that this move signals his imminent departure to AEW, although some believe he will not be a big star after joining AEW.

On the June 10th episode of Monday Night RAW, Bron Breakker delivered devastating blow to Ricochet, hurling him against a car and unleashing a relentless assault that left him incapacitated. As a result of the brutal beatdown, Ricochet had to be stretchered into an ambulance and was accompanied by Samantha Irvin, effectively writing him off television.

While speaking on the Keeping it 100 podcast, pro wrestling veteran Konnan shared his thoughts on Ricochet debuting in AEW. Konnan noted that while Ricochet will have great matches in AEW, he will never be a big star in the company.

“Bro, I think if they [WWE] would’ve let him fly, and even though you think they don’t want him to get hurt, he would’ve stood out. He hasn’t stood out. He’s been there for a long time. He’s one of the greatest high-flyers. He’ll go to AEW, where they love that indie style, and he’ll have great matches, but he won’t be a big star because nobody ever is.”


AEW’s internal reaction to Ricochet potentially joining the company has also been revealed, as Ricochet has been brought up backstage lately. Even Will Ospreay has been vocal about his desire for Ricochet to join AEW, so we’ll have to see if Ricochet will end up joining AEW this year.
