During WrestleMania 40, an interesting sighting occurred at the Lincoln Financial Field as former AEW Tag Team Champion Ricky Starks was spotted in attendance, watching the action unfold from a box.

Numerous photos have surfaced showcasing Starks enjoying the event alongside friends and acquaintances. Notably, Starks shares a close connection with several wrestlers who competed during the WrestleMania weekend, including Jade Cargill, who made her WrestleMania debut teaming up with Bianca Belair and Naomi.

On WrestleMania 40 Saturday, Cargill, Belair, and Naomi emerged victorious against the team of Dakota Kai, Asuka, and Kairi Sane representing Damage CTRL. The excitement continued into WrestleMania 40 Sunday, where the main event featured a monumental showdown for the WWE Universal Championship, ultimately won by Cody Rhodes, concluding a significant storyline.

Starks’ presence at WWE events isn’t entirely unprecedented, as he has been seen alongside Cody Rhodes at previous occasions, notably backstage during Royal Rumble 2023.


Interestingly, Cody Rhodes’ brother, Dustin Rhodes, is currently signed with AEW as well. Dustin recently reacted to his brother’s triumph in capturing the WWE Undisputed Universal Title in the marquee match of WrestleMania, further adding intrigue to the wrestling landscape.

With Starks’ appearance at WrestleMania 40, speculation and curiosity abound regarding potential future endeavors and collaborations within the wrestling industry.
