• “I realized that they didn’t want a wrestler” – AEW Wrestler On Getting Rejected By WWE
During a recent interview with Chris Van Vliet, AEW wrestler Ricky Starks talked about his WWE tryout from 2017, and being rejected.
Here’s what he said:
“I don’t think I was close at all and I’ll never understand why. I love wrestling. I’ve never played any sports, I never did anything, I only watched wrestling. And I have immersed myself and become obsessed with it and I love it to death.
So when I did the tryout in 2017 and I was told and saw the reaction when I killed it in the promo class and I was keeping up with everybody when we were doing the workouts and even Matt Bloom was saying how good of a job I did, I realized that they didn’t want a wrestler.
They wanted someone who wasn’t passionate about it that they could probably make into it. And I still don’t get why and that was a time period where I kind of went crazy; I dyed my hair and I couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me.
So I don’t know why that happened and I thought every time that I went to WWE I was like ‘This is going to be it. This is how I get in’ and it wasn’t and that’s fine. I’m ok with that.”
