Trevor Mann is an American professional wrestler. Mann is a high-flying wrestler who normally goes by Ricochet, but he is also well known as the masked Helios in Chikara and as Prince Puma, the yellow-masked face of Lucha Underground.

Mann first made his name in CHIKARA in 2006, when, as Ricochet, he got into a memorable feud with Chuck Taylor. Taylor kicked him out of the company a year later, but he returned as Helios a year later. In 2010, Ricochet would start go gain notoriety in promotions like Dragon Gate, Pro Wrestling Guerilla, and New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Mann has won many championships and tournaments during his career, including all four major Dragon Gate titles, the King of Gate tournament, the Lucha Underground title, the Aztec Warfare battle royal, the NJPW "Best of the Super Juniors" and "Super Juniors Tag Tournament", and the PWG Battle of Los Angeles.

For more detailed tropes relating specifically to his character as Prince Puma, see his entry on the Lucha Underground Season One character page.


"Ricotropes":

  • Action Dad: He has a son.
  • Animal Motif: As Prince Puma. His mask looks like a jaguar, the sacred big cat of Mexico.
  • Ascended Extra: Sort of. He went from being an American indy guy associated with Dragon Gate USA (Dragon Gate's American spinoff) to slowly working his way up the card and eventually becoming the first gaijin to hold the Open the Dream Gate Championship, the company's top belt
  • Charlie Brown from Outta Town: The whole Helios thing.
  • Cool Mask: The Prince Puma mask's design is reminiscent of a jaguar, the sacred big cat of Mexico. He also has another one he wears with the colours inverted- black with yellow and red trim.
    • His Helios mask is pretty cool too.
  • David Vs Goliath: Against both Cage and Big Ryck on Lucha Underground with him as the David.
  • Face: On Lucha Underground. Interestingly, he's remained this even though he's being mentored by Konnan, who through most of his late career was anything but. He's drifting closer to a Face–Heel Turn in Season 3 as he adopts Vampiro as his master instead (after Konnan was Killed Off for Real).
  • Finishing Move: The 630 Senton.
  • The Hero: Possibly the closest thing Lucha Underground has to a protagonist.
  • Heroic Mute: For all of Season 1 and about half of Season 2 of Lucha Underground, Puma didn't say a single word, with his manager Konnan talking for him. Once he finally started talking for himself, he proved to be quite eloquent.
  • I Have the High Ground: If he climbs the ropes and you're on the mat, I hope you enjoy that 630 Senton!
  • Lightning Bruiser: The man is not only lightning quick and inhumanly agile, he's also incredibly strong for his size (capable of pulling our power moves like suplexes and brainbusters even against opponents as big as the Monster Matanza) and takes a hell of a beating to put down!
  • Masked Luchador: Well, duh.
  • Meaningful Name: Prince Puma, with Prince referring to his position as the heir apparent (alluding to both his youth and his bloodline as a descendant of an Aztec tribe) and Puma as another name for the jaguar, the sacred big cat of Mexico.
  • Panthera Awesome: Prince Puma's name and mask.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: It's not much of a secret Helios was Ricochet.
  • The Rival: Possibly with Will Ospreay, as arguably the two best high-fliers of their time.
  • Signature Moves: The Running SSP, the Poisoned Frankensteiner, the Spanish Fly, the Fireman's Carry kick... You know what? Just watch this video. The guy has a HELL of an arsenal.

Alternative Title(s): Ricochet
