Ricky Starks is currently dealing with a neck injury, but he says reports about any other issues are inaccurate.
Starks posted the following response to a report from Wrestling Observer Radio (via Wrestling Inc) that claimed Starks was dealing with a knee injury and might need surgery.
Inaccurate. Nothing wrong with my knees
Starks suffered a fractured neck on the April 21 episode of AEW Dynamite after taking a German suplex from Hangman Page, but he was able to finish the match. Starks was also featured in a tag team match with Powerhouse Hobbs on a subsequent episode of AEW Dark, but didn’t compete as Hobbs did all of the work in the squash match.
Voices Of Wrestling originally reported Starks was set to miss up to three months of action due to the neck injury, with Fightful updating the situation and reporting Starks was dealing with a ‘slightly fractured neck’. Starks is set to continue appearing on AEW TV in some capacity while he’s rehabbing his injury, which won’t require surgery.
