Bring him Roman Reigns, he still won’t care! Ricky Starks won’t be deterred by the bevy of new arrivals to AEW.
Recently discussing his place in the plans on the Pro Wrestling Illustrated podcast, Starks said:
“To me, I’m going to say it straight up, I can run with those guys. I can be at the top with those guys. I’m on the same level as those dudes. I know that in my heart I am. Sometimes, I’m having to play catch up with my momentum and having to pick up where I left off, and that’s fine, other days I’m looking around like, ‘this all changed so quick and I need to figure out where to jump in at.’ I don’t want this to seem like I’m not appreciative, but this is a bit more insight into me personally that I’m trying to figure out. I see all the positive support online and people want to see me more, and I really do take it to heart and get emotional over it. At the end of the day, you can bring in Punk, Bryan Danielson, Adam Cole, bring in Roman Reigns, all of them. The thing I want is the opportunity to get in there and say, ‘You may not think much of me right now, but after the match, I’m sure you will.’ It isn’t just the hot popular groups of people at AEW that you want to surround yourself with, look at the underutilized and undiscovered talent on the roster and go from there.”
Ricky Starks has most recently been squaring off against a few new faces from WWE, not shying away from referencing the growing locker room in promos with Keith Lee and Swerve Strickland.
