Ricky Starks

Ricky Stars has clinched a spot in the AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament finals.

Before the pay-per-view started, All Elite Wrestling held their AEW Full Gear: Zero Hour pre-show, and during so, Ricky Starks landed a win over Brian Cage, his former Team Taz running mate, to lock himself up a spot in the finals of the AEW World Championship Eliminator Tournament.

Near the end of the match, Cage attempted to hit Ricky Starks with an F5, however, the latter countered the move with a Canadian Destroyer. Afterwards, Starks would pull off the Roshambo, sealing the deal for the win.

After his Zero Hour victory, Starks now advances to the tournament’s finals where he will take on Ethan Page, taking place during the November 23, 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite. Whoever wins the tournament will secure themselves a title shot for the AEW World Championship, with that bout taking place December 14, 2022 at AEW Dynamite: Winter is Coming.

Before beating Cage in the semi-final round, Stark defeated Lance Archer in the first. For Page, he got himself a victory over Eddie Kingston, and then Bandido, to get in the finals.
