Ringside News reported earlier that Ricochet has not renewed his contract. He initially signed the contract on January 16th, 2018 for three years. Now that his contract is one inch away from expiring, reports of a new signing were not heard.

The report argued that the lack of renewal led the star to be squashed in his feud with Retribution on Raw. However, Ricochet has responded to the report on Twitter today.

He straight out called the report “fake.” Since then, Ringside Report have apologized to him and confirmed that it was a misunderstanding. They misunderstood the audio from Wrestling Observer’s Bryan Alvarez, and it was Riddle rejecting a new contract, not Ricochet.

Ricochet has a lot of potential left in him

Often surprising fans with his athleticism, Ricochet signed with WWE and instantly became a top star in NXT. He won the NXT North American Championship and transitioned to the main roster after that.

He went on to win the United States Championship. He even got a World Title opportunity as he faced Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship at Super ShowDown.

However, it was a squash match, and he lost in two minutes. Since then, Ricochet has seemingly lost his ‘charm’.

He teamed with Cedric Alexander for a while but Alexander turned on him to join the heel stable The Hurt Business. Post that, the rising Retribution also set their sights on him.

Nowadays, he is just fodder for Retribution or Hurt Business. Although he could easily switch to a new promotion, it seems Ricochet will be in WWE for a while.
