Ricky Starks, who recently became a free agent, answered Cody Rhodes’ open challenge this week on AEW Dynamite.
A video hyping the former NWA Television champion played after an in-ring promo from Rhodes and Arn Anderson. Starks and Cody then wrestled an impressive match that ended with “The American Nightmare” retaining the TNT title after hitting the Cross Rhodes.
Starks announced his departure from the NWA and free agency status last month. He had been with the promotion since August of 2019.
Ricky later confirmed he has now officially signed with AEW.
