Ricky Starks doing fine after injury scare on Collision

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.
