It’s official! Former Lucha Underground champ Ricochet (Prince Puma) has signed a deal with WWE.
WWE.com revealed the highly-anticipated signing on Tuesday and noted that he officially reported for duty today at the WWE Performance Center.
Interesting note: Rico competed in LU as Prince Puma and had a 90-day no compete clause with the company after his final match aired in October. Yesterday was day 90.
The announcement also lists some of his accomplishments: “Among his many accolades, Mann has twice won Pro Wrestling Guerrilla’s annual Battle of Los Angeles tournament, and he is only the second American in history to win New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Best of the Super Juniors tournament.”
