Samantha Irwin’s WWE Status

On the June 10, 2024, episode of Raw, Ricochet made his final WWE appearance battling with Bron Breakker in the ringside area backstage. Ricochet was assaulted in the Parking lot area and was taken to the hospital in an Ambulance. Samantha Irwin who watched her Fiance’s brutal assault cried and left the arena with Ricochet in the same Ambulance & Pat McAfee took the Ring Announcer spot in the main event. 

As Samantha left with Ricochet, most of the fans on social media platforms wondered, if Samantha also had left the company with Ricochet. A backstage report clears the fans’ query on Samantha Irvin’s WWE status.

According to PWInsider’s report, they have heard from WWE sources that Ricochet’s WWE exit doesn’t affect Samantha Irvin’s status with WWE. She has a separate contract with the Stamford-based company and will be continuing her role as the Raw ring announcer even after Ricochet’s WWE exit.

The Backstage reports suggest that Ricochet voluntarily asked for his exit from the company after his WWE contract expired to enter Free Agency and put himself in the Free Agency market. Rumors suggest that AEW & its sister promotion NJPW are expected to show interest in signing Ricochet for their promotions.

Wherever he goes, he will be carrying his ring name Ricochet with him as he owns the trademark for the name.
