There has been a lot of speculation about Ricochet, a.k.a. Prince Puma in Lucha Underground, possibly signing with WWE soon. Dave Meltzer noted in the most recent issue of The Wrestling Observer that Ricochet may not be heading to WWE anytime soon.
Meltzer noted that Ricochet appears to be staying with New Japan for the foreseeable future. Ricochet appeared on The Steve Austin Show this past July and noted that while he would like to sign with WWE one day, his immediate goal is to win the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship.
"I really want to be IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion," Ricochet told Austin. "I've challenged for it twice and I've yet to win, but I want to do that. There [are] a couple of things I want to do. Now my goal, I would like to be in the WWE one day. NXT, wherever, but there [are] still a couple of things I want to do. Like, Lucha [Underground]'s still going really well. It's still going really great."
Ricochet added, "so there's really not a goal. Just, I guess, have fun, be safe, save as much money as I can. That's because I've got a seven-year-old son right now, so I'm trying to save up for his future. So, I think that's mostly the goal right now."
Think i just got some great news. 2017 may just be my best year to date! #NotWWE— King Ricochet (@KingRicochet) September 19, 2016
