Ricky Starks Says Cody Rhodes Is Still His Go-To Person For Advice

Ricky Starks Says Cody Rhodes Is Still His Go-To Person For Advice WWE/AEW

Cody Rhodes made his WWE return after six-years away back at WrestleMania 38, when he defeated Seth Rollins in the first of three matches between the two.

Cody was instrumental in getting All Elite Wrestling off the ground, serving as one of the company’s executive vice presidents. Many AEW stars looked at Cody as a mentor, including current FTW Champion Ricky Starks.

Starks recently appeared on Busted Open Radio, where he revealed that Cody Rhodes is still his go-to person for advice.

He said:

“It’s gonna be Cody. I have people I’m able to go to. It still is Cody. There is nothing wrong with saying that. I don’t really have that type of relationship back there (in AEW). There are people I can talk to, for sure, but it’s not in terms of taking me under their wing.

“Sting is a person I talk to with stuff outside of wrestling. Sonjay (Dutt) is a producer I talk to and I like Sonjay a lot because he understands me and that’s all I’ve asked for from people, is to understand me as a person, and he does. Jericho, I’ve talked to to get advice, but there isn’t anyone I go to and sit there and pick their brains because I don’t feel like I have that relationship just yet. It’s not because of me, it’s just how it is there back there and that’s cool with me.”

MJF also recent revealed that he still speaks to Cody Rhodes, and that Cody offered his parents tickets to a SmackDown show in Long Island.

Starks is set to team with Powerhouse Hobbs to face both ‘Swerve in our Glory’ and AEW Tag Team Champions Jurassic Express in a three-way at AEW Double or Nothing.
