Ricochet is waiting out an extended period before he can sign with a major company in the United States, but he's still making waves around the world.
One of those waves came in Tidal form during night 2 of the G1 Special in July. Ricochet showed up on the event, saying that due to Lucha Underground, he wasn't able to perform sooner. In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Ricochet discussed the promo and his contract status.
"I don't have any hard feelings against anyone at Lucha Underground. That was just me poking at them a little bit, you know? If I was really mad at them, I would have said something more meaningful than 'pricks'. That's not even that bad of an insult, it was just more me poking at them and ruffling some feathers. My contract finished last June. I'm on the no-compete for the rest of Lucha Underground's season three, then I have 90 days after that. I can be on any TV as long as it's not American TV. I can work indies, I can do iPPVs, most anything, really, just not on American TV. I'm not sure about a Season 4 with Lucha Underground. I'm busy until October, and I might take November off to heal up again. I really want to work on my diet and get myself in the best shape possible."
Ricochet is still free to work for NJPW as well, as long as it isn't televised in the United States.
