WWE News: AEW Free Agent That WWE “Wants” Rumors Debunked

WWE News: Rumors about an AEW “free agent” and someone that WWE ‘wants’ are apparently greatly overexaggerated. 

According to a new report from Fightful Select, the unfounded rumors online around Ricky Starks apparently being a ‘free agent’ are in fact not true.

“Fightful asked around within AEW and were told that would be news to them, and also confirmed with those close to Starks that his contract is not up” Fightful reported.

Ricky Starks has not wrestled in AEW since he and Big Bill lost the AEW Tag Team Championships to Darby Allin and the now-retired Sting.

WWE News: Ricky Starks To WWE?

Fightful also confirmed that they do not have any further information regarding Starks’ contract and when it may be up. What we do know is that he is still All Elite and will likely be for some time at least.

The rumor mill started gaining traction when Cody Rhodes was accompanied by the AEW star at WrestleMania, with many believing that Starks would be the next name to jump ship, just like the American Nightmare.

It turned out that Jade Cargill and CM Punk would be those names that would eventually move over to the competition, although there is still a very good chance that Starks could do so at some point.
