Ricky Starks’ raw talent as a pro wrestler is undeniable and has a bright future ahead of him in AEW. He is currently the FTW Champion and is one of the mainstays of AEW television. He is also very outspoken when it comes to the pro wrestling product.

He is also is constantly compared to The Rock, fact which surprises him. Especially when it comes to the way he dresses and his mannerisms and promo skills. The comparisons are certainly plausible according to many.

Stars previously stated that he considers himself homegrown AEW talent and not NWA, which led to a lot of discussion among fans. While speaking on Josh Martinez’s Superstar Crossover show, Ricky Starks bragged that he would be unbeatable if he ever worked with Paul Heyman.

“Well, first off, I think the fact that Paul is going to acknowledge me is also a good start here. But you know what it is, you know what I actually really like about Paul is the fact that this dude worked his way up from one of the most famous clubs in New York as a photographer to where he is now. I admittedly, and selfishly, would have loved to have the chance to work with him.


Bro, I am like a piece of clay right now. Could you imagine if Paul Heyman got his hands on me? I would be freakin’ unstoppable. I’m already on my way to being on stage. What I’m saying is I would have been there a lot quicker. So the personal situation with Paul Heyman is the fact that — what a missed opportunity between me and him, don’t you think?”

We will have to wait and see whether Ricky Starks and Paul Heyman might work together one day, as Starks once worked in WWE as enhancement talent.
