Ricky Starks is a Kanye West fan, and he also knows that Tony Khan has the tendency to buy wrestlers expensive entrance music. Starks has used many lyrics by Ye in his promos during his time in the independent scene. The situation has changed as he wants to use the theme song by Ye in at least one match.

During an appearance on Watching The Throne podcast, Starks talked about why he wants the theme song and what is so special about the song ‘Touch The Sky.’ It’s important to note that Tony Khan is ready to pick any theme for his superstars.

Tony Khan most recently got the rights to “Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas for The Elite (Kenny Omega & The Young Bucks) to use. It makes clear sense that he is ready to do the right thing for his superstars.

My goal is to get the rights to play Touch The Sky at least once for one of my matches. That’s the goal. I’m putting it out there. I’m manifesting this happening. That’s what I want out of this whole thing. The day that I get that, I’m pretty much going to set Twitter on fire.


That came from the fact that, I had to watch the music video again. I heard the song in a movie and I had never thought to think of it in that type of light. I ended up using it as my theme song and it kind of took off from there in terms, I’ll meet other Kanye West fans and I’ll tell them my entrance and they immediately start singing Touch The Sky. It’s real stadium music.

Ricky Starks is rising up the ranks as a fan favorite, so his request might mean a lot to Khan. Starks storyline with Powerhouse Hobbs was appreciated, and his character has made a mark within the AEW fan base. Only time will tell if TK shells out big money for a Ye track, if only for one play.
