Tony Khan Refuses To Discuss Departing WWE Star

Tony Khan AEW

There’s justified speculation about one WWE star on their way out of the company but AEW boss Tony Khan won’t discuss them.

In recent days it became apparent that Ricochet was heading out of WWE as his current deal with the company comes to an end. Recently, several stars in the company have signed new deals as they neared the end of their old ones but Ricochet is said to have made clear that he would not be re-signing and was on his way out.

On the 10th of June edition of Raw, that exit was all but guaranteed as the former US Champion was devoured by a rampant Bron Breakker. Breakker defeated Ilja Dragunov on the show and continued to beat down Dragunov after picking up the win. That led to Ricochet attempting to make the save for Dragunov but he might have wished he didn’t bother.

Bron Breakker got the better of Ricochet, lawn-darting him into a production truck backstage in echoes of what Kevin Nash did to Rey Mysterio back in WCW. The former NXT Champion then slammed Ricochet through a car windscreen.

With the high-flying star set to leave WWE speculation is running wild as to where he might end up next with many seeing AEW as his likely destination. But with his contract with WWE running to July, Tony Khan won’t talk about that.

Tony Khan Refuses To Discuss Ricochet

Speaking to TV Insider, AEW boss Tony Khan was asked for his thoughts on Ricochet but decided to keep his powder dry on the star:

If it’s okay, I’d rather not get into wrestlers that still work for someone else.

Tony Khan has previously refused to comment on Becky Lynch as he said he wants to keep it classy in the murky world of pro wrestling. Lynch has now left WWE following the end of her contract with the company but she is not expected to sign anywhere else imminently.
