Ricky Starks Name 3 Major NJPW Stars He Wants To Face

Ricky Starks

Ricky Starks has high aspirations for Forbidden Door as he names three top stars of New Japan Pr Wrestling that he wants to defend the FTW Title against.

Starks had an unhappy outing at Double Or Nothing as he and Powerhouse Hobbs were unable to walk away with the AEW Tag Team Championship in their match with Jurassic Express and Keith Lee & Swerve Strickland.

In a hard-fought match, Jungle Boy and Luchasaurus walked away with their gold with Christian Cage nailing Ricky Starks with the FTW Title during the chaos.

Moving on from Las Vegas, ‘Absolute’ Ricky Starks has told WhatCulture that he has big plans for AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door in June, as he names three top stars of NJPW that he wants to defend his FTW Championship against:

“I’m not gonna say that I want these guys to come in and wrestle me because it should be an honor to wrestle me. I will tell you this though. If by chance we needed somebody okay. It’d probably be Naito. It’d probably be SANADA. It’d probably be Okada, those three. Give me those three or give me death. I do not care.

Ricky Starks has held the unrecognised FTW Title since he defeated his former Team Taz teammate Brian Cage for the gold in July 2021.
