Ricky Starks Mocks Tetsuya Naito Ahead Of Forbidden Door

Ricky Starks vs. Tetsuya Naito at Forbidden Door?

All Elite Wrestling's Ricky Starks has mocked Tetsuya Naito ahead of the June 26 Forbidden Door pay-per-view between AEW and New Japan Pro-Wrestling.

No matches have been announced for the highly-anticipated show as of yet and Naito recently revealed that he wouldn't be calling anyone out, saying: "There is no wrestler I want to call out. The reason is simple. Wrestlers in AEW will all gather and shout, 'I want to wrestle Tetsuya Naito!' and 'I want to fight Los Ingobernables de Japon!' It isn't hard to see this happening. It won't take long before it does."

Ricky Starks poked fun at the former IWGP Heavyweight Champion soon after, though, tweeting: "Regarding the Forbidden Door PPV: There is no wrestler I want to call out...Wrestlers in NJPW will all gather & shout, 'I want to wrestle Ricky Starks!' and 'I want to fight Team Taz!' It won't take long before it does."

If this will lead to a Team Taz vs. Los Ingobernables de Japon match at Forbidden Door ultimately remains to be seen but a battle between the two factions would likely be a popular addition to the card.
