Ricky Starks segment confirmed for AEW Fight for the Fallen

Jul 27, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

New FTW Champion Ricky Starks will celebrate his recent title win during tomorrow’s Fight for the Fallen edition of AEW Dynamite on TNT.

The Fyter Fest Night 1 edition of Dynamite on July 14 saw Starks capture the FTW Title from former Team Taz partner Brian Cage. Starks took to Twitter this week and confirmed that there will be a championship celebration at Fight for the Fallen.

The celebration was first mentioned during a backstage segment on last week’s Fyter Fest Night 1 show. Cage later indicated that he is planning to show up and crash Team Taz’s party. He further teased an interruption on Twitter, when responding to AEW’s tweet on how this will be a New Orleans-style celebration for Starks, who is from the city.

“Let’s celebrate me as a great wrestler, teammate and overall genius! Charlotte is special because of the Hornets so why not give the people something to look forward to for once! #AEWDynamite this Wed! [partying face emoji x 2],” Starks wrote.

The graphic for the Starks celebration includes Taz, Hook and Powerhouse Hobbs.
