One day after seeing Kota Ibushi at NXT Takeover Dallas, there are now rumors about another big name in the cruiserweight ranks joining NXT.
According to Dave Metlzer of the Wrestling Observer, we should know whithin the week if Ricochet, known as Prince Puma in Lucha Underground, will join WWE/NXT or not. Ricochet, who is one half of the current IWGP Jr Heavyweight Tag Team Champions (with Matt Sydal), will be defending the titles next week at Invasion Attack against Roppongi Vice.
As for Ricochet’s Lucha Underground status, it is now being said he has a clause in his contract which would allow him to leave after certain episodes have been aired. It has also been reported that at the last set of Lucha Underground TV tapings, Ricochet was booked in a way that would make it very easy for Lucha Underground to write him off TV.
