• “Regardless of my size, I can really whoop anyone’s a$$” – AEW Wrestler
During an interview on the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Podcast, AEW’s FTW Champion Ricky Starks talked about fans’ misconceptions about him.
Below is what he said:
“Ya know, I thought about it before but I don’t think I carry it as a chip on my shoulder because I’m always gonna be judged in some type of way…whether it’s that I’m too effeminate or I’m too cocky, I’m too much of a pretty boy, or this is a rugged title and it doesn’t really fit.
People don’t know my history and where I come from and the things that I’ve had to experience, and that’s fine because I think it’s kind of corny when you have to tell people, ‘oh, I’ve done this, this, and this just to prove a point to them and change their opinion, right?
So, I feel regardless of my size and any of that, I can really whoop anyone’s a$$. I’m a very hot-tempered person and can go from 0 to 100 really quick and that may not come through initially when you see me.
I’m out there with poise, and suave, and this and that, and you go, ‘oh, Taz was a little more rugged’ and sure he was, but guess what? I can be rugged too and I can dress to the nines and I can do all this stuff. Even when I’m not FTW Champion, I’m still going to be the same guy. So, I kind of tune all that stuff out.”
