AEW Star Hopes To Be Doing ‘Something With Substance’ Soon

AEW Star Hopes To Be Doing ‘Something With Substance’ Soon AEW

An AEW star has spoken about how he is hopeful that there is still a way for him to contribute after being off television for nearly two months.

While some may have assumed that Ricky Starks was absent due to injury, in a recent interview he confirmed that such was not the case.

Despite making few appearances in 2024, Starks remained hopeful that there could be a place for him on the AEW All In 2024 card in a chat with WhatCulture Wrestling.

Ricky Starks said:

“The idea of even being at WrestleMania is so…I don’t even think…I think I had that dream, and then I stopped having that dream for whatever reason. Not to be sad or anything. I don’t know why. But I think everybody dreams about that.

“But AEW has its own WrestleMania, so to speak, with All In. It did suck last year to not be on it. I don’t want to set myself up for disappointment, and I don’t want to publicly say that I’m gonna be on All In this year, and then I just don’t.

“I’m kind of superstitious like that, in a way. I am, but I’m not. Would it be nice? For sure. Do I know that I will? I don’t know. Do I hope? Yeah. But if not, I also get it, too. What I mean by that is, I also get like, hey, some shit just don’t work out for you.

“If we’ve known by now in my career, some things just, it ain’t gonna happen. It ain’t gonna happen for me, and that’s okay. I don’t want to harp on that or focus on that part because I’ll just be stuck in a shitty space. So I think what’s next for me is… dude, I have no clue. I don’t know. I have no clue.

“I would love to be back wrestling and doing something with substance, but that is not in my control. So I don’t know, to be real with you. Hopefully, you see me back on-screen real soon. [Shrugs] Yeah, because I’m ready.”

Ricky Starks has been out of action in AEW since his last appearance on the March 30 edition of Collision.

Starks has had but five television matches during 2024, appearing three times in January, once in February and the aforementioned.
