RICKY STARKS: Ricky Starks doing fine after injury scare on Collision

Posted on 4/01/124 by Colin Vassallo

The Ricky Starks and Big Bill vs Top Flight match on
Collision this past Saturday ended prematurely and with a
different finish and scheduled winners after Starks had an
injury scare during the match.

During the match, which was part of the AEW Tag Team title
tournament, Starks was hit with a Pele Kick off the
turnbuckle by Darius Martin which looked like it knocked him
silly. After a few more moves, they went straight to a
finish which confused everyone as Starks didn’t kick out of
the pinfall and the referee stopped the count. He was then
DDT’d and Martin pinned him again, this time with the
referee counting to three.

Starks later wrote that he was all good and “everything
checked out fine” but was being precautious.

Dave Meltzer of the Observer reported that Starks and Bill
were originally scheduled to win the match and then take on
FTR in the semi final of the tournament. The other semi
final match features The Young Bucks vs Best Friends.
