Ricky Starks Match Announced For AEW WrestleDream

AEW WrestleDream will feature a Ricky Starks match

The first ever AEW WrestleDream event is set for October 1, and as seen on the go-home Dynamite on September 27, a new match has been confirmed for All Elite Wrestling’s Atonio Inoki tribute show.

During Dynamite, it was confirmed that Ricky Starks will take on Wheeler Yuta at the show, following on from the two exchanging words on the September 23 edition of Collision.

Starks has been at war with Blackpool Combat Club’s Bryan Danielson, but after suffering his second straight brutal loss to ‘The American Dragon’, Starks called him out claiming that he hasn’t pinned or submitted ‘Absolute’ yet. This brought out Danielson’s BCC teammate Yuta, who challenged Starks.
