Prince Puma, aka Ricochet, has reportedly turned down a new contract with Lucha Underground … but it’s still a mystery as to when he’d be allowed to work elsewhere.
According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Puma was offered a “lucrative deal” to return to the series following Season 3 but recently made a decision to pass on the offer.
Pro Wrestling Sheet has confirmed the generous deal was for multiple years — not seasons — but our sources were tight lipped on whether Ricochet had accepted the offer or not.
It’s presently not known if or when he is planning to sign with another promotion. It is believed, however, that standard Lucha Underground contracts prevent talents from appearing on TV with another promotion until six months after their last appearance in the Temple airs.
Puma’s final match will reportedly air in Summer 2017.
For now, Ricochet is expected to continue working for New Japan Pro Wrestling.
