“They Are Not Married, Are They?”- Former Champion Thinks Ricochet’s Relationship With Samantha Irvin Might Be Impacted If He Leaves WWE

Husband of Samantha Irvin, Ricochet recently informed the WWE regime that he would not renew his contract upon its expiration this summer. Much like many giving their opinions on the same, former WWE head writer Vince Russo recently weighed in on his decision to leave the global juggernaut.

Ricochet has enjoyed success throughout his WWE career, capturing multiple championships and accolades in the process. Furthermore, Ricochet also made history by becoming the inaugural WWE Speed Champion but recently lost the title to Andrade El Idolo amidst rumors of this departure.

What did former WCW Champion Vince Russo have to say about Ricochet and Samantha Irvin?

On the recent episode of Legion of RAW, Vince Russo delved into the intricacies of Ricochet’s decision to leave WWE. The fact that his fiancée, Samantha Irvin, also works for the company adds a layer of complexity. Russo speculated that this professional separation could potentially strain their relationship, as the couple are used to spending a great deal of time together on the road.


Russo suggested that AEW President and CEO Tony Khan might have played a role in Ricochet’s decision by offering a lucrative contract to jump ship.

“It’s tough, bro, because his better half is working there. So they’re together on the road, they travel together, they’re on the show together. That’s got to be a tough decision,” Russo said.

“Let’s be honest, Tony Khan is probably offering double what he got. No question about it. To me, that still has to be a tough decision. His girlfriend is the ring announcer, they’re not married, are they? They get to travel together, that’s huge. Now him going to another company. But again, there was probably a lot of money involved,” he further added.


As Ricochet prepares to turn the page and embark on a new chapter in his wrestling career, the fans have been buzzing with anticipation and speculation about his next move. Only time will tell, but one thing is certain-his possible departure from WWE has set in motion a significant shift in the professional wrestling landscape and could lead to better opportunities for The One and Only.
