AEW Star Out For Several Months With Neck Injury

AEW Star Out For Several Months With Neck Injury

It’s being reported that AEW star and Team Taz member Ricky Starks will be out of action for several month due to a neck injury.

As reported by Voices of Wrestling, Starks has been diagnosed with a fractured neck and is set to be out of action for three months.

Fightful has followed up by confirming it’s a “slight fracture” and he won’t require surgery.

He’s expected to remain on TV in some capacity while he recovers, but he won’t be competing in the ring for a little while.

It’s not been confirmed that the injury is related, but you’ll probably remember Starks landed on his neck while taking a German suplex from Adam Page on the April 21 episode of Dynamite.

It seemed AEW was heading towards a Christian Cage vs Ricky Starks match after Cage had beaten Powerhouse Hobbs, so the timing of this is definitely unfortunate.

We wish Starks a safe recovery and all the best.
