In 2018, Ricky Starks appeared as an extra in a televised WWE segment. In the bit, Roman Reigns was to be arrested. Starks played a US Marshall who was sent to take the Big Dog down.

Reigns then resisted arrest. Starks had to cuff him. Roman said he apologized in advance if he was rough, because he couldn’t control his bound hands. He told the story to Brandon Walker on Rasslin’.

“When I showed up to work that day, they didn’t say ‘You’re going to be a cop’ or ‘You’re going to be a sheriff.’ They called it something else. It was like the guys who sit in the office and when something cool happens, they throw on the vest. I was a fake (security guard) basically.

If there was a drug bust in town, I’m going to show up late after SWAT already showed up. I don’t know who that is. I went there, talked to Roman, put these cuffs on and they were really tight.


He goes, ‘I can’t do anything while I have my hands cuffed, so, sorry ahead of time.’ I went to grand him and he [double axe handles me]. We get to the corner and he starts stomping the shit out of me. He’s a really great guy because afterward he apologized.”

Ricky Starks is currently a star with All Elite Wrestling. He’s the reigning FTW Champion. The title was created by Taz and dates to the late 1990’s during his run in ECW.
