Ricky Starks Gives Update After Injury Scare, Tag Title Tournament Plans Changed

Ricky Starks on AEW Collision

Ricky Starks has shared a positive update.

On the March 30th episode of Collision, Ricky Starks teamed with Big Bill to take on Top Flight in the World Tag Team Title Tournament. In the end, it was Dante and Darius Martin who got the win to advance to a match with FTR in the semi-finals. However, that was only part of the story.

Towards the end of the match, Starks was pinned and didn’t kick out, but the referee didn’t count to three as Darius stood up. Starks was quickly hit with a DDT from Darius and this time the pinfall ended the match. Darius could be seen speaking with the referee as he pinned Starks.

Once the match was over, Starks was checked over by medics in the ring. But thankfully he seems to be okay. In a post on social media, Starks wrote “I’m all good, everything checked out fine.”
