In a recent interview with Busted Open Radio to promote tonight’s AEW All Out pay-per-view, All Elite Wrestling superstar Ricky Starks discussed how him signing with the company came about.

“I got a text from Cody asking if I wanted to come in and do the challenge, I go there and have the match with Cody thinking it’s a one-off deal, I came home and I got offered a contract and I’m thinking, what happened, what changed, how did things change so quickly in such a short time period.

I was so incredibly proud, I busted my a** for so long and it paid off in a way I could have never imagined. I only had $4 in my bank account and then, I was wrestling Cody.”
