Ricky Starks recently spoke with Chris Van Vliet about his career highlights, which include being signed by AEW this summer. Starks also talked about how he’s OK with being compared to The Rock right now, and what he needs to really get to the next level in his career.
His thoughts on being compared to The Rock:
“I should have been cast in that new biopic show that he has coming out. I’m not too sad or mad about the comparisons, right? I mean that’s cool to have that but I know at the end of the day who I pattern myself after if you even want to call it that. And I already know how my lineage is going to be moving forward. The comparisons won’t last my entire life. They just won’t. So if that’s the starter for how people see me right now and the intrigue is still there then I’m fine with that.”
What he needs to take his career to the next level:
“I think the next step would be a championship title. Here’s my opinion: I don’t necessarily need a title. I can be just as great without it. I could probably go my entire career without ever having a title. But obviously having the title adds a certain spice to things and that only enhances the flavor of the entire meal, right? So I think having that only takes me up another step.”
