From the Impact Wrestling Rumor Mill: Negotiations held with possible WWE target
According to incoming reports from PWInsider, Impact Wrestling is reportedly looking to sign up Richochet, popularly known as Prince Puma.
The former Lucha Underground Champion is currently a free agent after he finished up his contractual obligations with the company and has also wrapped his dates with NJPW.
The report from PWInsider states that Impact and Ricochet had a round of talks regarding a possible deal but nothing more was revealed about the details. Conflicting details from Wrestling Observer claim that Puma is all set to make his WWE debut next year.
The indie Superstar has told independent bookers that he won't be working any dates after January. Mid-January is when his no-compete clause with LU reportedly expires.
WWE seems to be keen on signing up one of the best wrestlers in the world but not without some healthy competition with their perennial rivals, Impact.
For all its worth, WWE may have already penned a deal with Ricochet for a debut that has been long coming. However, the WWE Universe will sadly have to wait until January to see the high-flying 29-year-old in action.
He even won the PWG Championship last week from Chuck Taylor and should be preoccupied with it in the meantime.
For all those who are oblivious to Ricochet's credentials, the American wrestler is a two-time LU World Champion, six-time NJPW Tag team champion (IWGP and NEVER combined) and is considered to be one of the best high-flyers, if not the best in the world.
Who will end up getting the services of the exciting prospect? WWE or Impact? Only time will tell.
