Rumour Killer On Ricky Starks Heading To WWE

Ricky Starks isn't going anywhere.

Despite rumours to the contrary, Ricky Starks is not set to leave AEW for WWE. 

Fightful Select first debunked rumours that the 34-year-old's contract had expired, before AEW CEO Tony Khan himself addressed the speculation. 

Speaking at the AEW Revolution media scrum, Khan said: 

"I don't know what the rumour is. Ricky is part of AEW. Ricky is definitely still under contract in AEW. I haven't seen that. Ricky was a big part of Sting's run, he was Sting's first match in AEW. Ricky and Big Bill, I'm very grateful, and I've said that to Ricky too, both right after the match and since, very grateful. Ricky and Big Bill, what great world tag team champions, and what a great match for Sting and Darby to win the world tag team championships. Ricky was there at the beginning three years ago, then a huge part of the title change, which set the stage for tonight. He's been here for some of the big moments. I'm very excited about having him here. He's definitely part of AEW and has been a big part of Sting's final run". 

Starks' most recent AEW match was the one on the February 7 edition of Dynamite, where he and Big Bill dropped the AEW World Tag Team Titles to Sting and Darby Allin.
