Tessa Blanchard at Lucha Underground, Ricochet not going to WWE?

Tessa Blanchard and Prince Puma (Ricochet) wrestled as a tag team in a dark match at Saturday night’s Lucha Underground tapings. I believe this is Blanchard’s second match with them because she did at least one tryout match for them back in January in a match with Ivelisse.

This could be a good sign for Prince Puma/Ricochet fans because there was talk of him eventually landing in WWE but once those reports got out, he was offered a nice deal from Lucha Underground. The news on the offer was first reported in the Wrestling Observer newsletter a couple of weeks ago. If they sign Tessa Blanchard then that makes it more likely that Ricochet/Puma would stay with the company. Ricochet/Puma and Blanchard are a couple and live together in Orlando with Apollo Crews so I could see how NXT would be appealing to them since they live so close to the Performance Center and Full Sail University.

If Ricochet signs a new deal then it would likely keep him away from WWE past 2017. Blanchard wrestled Alexa Bliss on 4/2 during the NXT tapings at WrestleMania Axxess but she has not signed a deal with them.
