Ricky Starks Explains Why He Doesn’t Want To Be One Of The Four Pillars Of AEW
For someone who prides himself on individuality, Starks believes that being named as one of the “four pillars” is limiting the talent brought up in the discussion. “I don’t want to be involved in it. I like most of the people in that conversation, and it’s a cool gimmick. It’s a cool shirt; it’s a cool tagline to run with. But to me, heartfelt, I don’t like it because [I don’t want to be] put in such a pigeon-holed thing, you know what I’m saying?”
It’s clear that despite not being in the “four pillars” mix, Starks is finding his path to success. He recently challenged MJF for the AEW World Heavyweight Championship on the December 14, “Winter is Coming” episode of “Dynamite,” and though he didn’t emerge the new Champion, his positioning on the card is leaps and bounds ahead of where he was at just one year prior. “I stand above all of that [four pillar talk] in my head,” Starks said.
One reason he may not have been considered one of the four pillars, according to Starks, is because of his age. “Absolute” Starks thinks that’s a poor excuse because he’s still got plenty of gas in the tank to have a promotion profit off of his talent. “First off, what’s old? That’s what I want to know. I’m literally 32, so give me a break. I’m just saying, I put it online that I don’t want to be included in talks of pillars.”
