After defeating Chris Jericho at AEW Winter is Coming 2022, Action Andretti began his meteoric rise in AEW. He was quickly aligned with Ricky Starks, who was also battling Jericho and the Jericho Appreciation Society.
Starks & Andretti teamed on the January 25 episode of AEW Dynamite, losing to Jericho & Sammy Guevara.
Appearing on AEW Unrestricted, Andretti discussed working with Starks.
"He's really good to work with. He's very well-liked in AEW, so it's cool to be paired up with somebody who is so over in the business. He's been very helpful to me, just learning-wise because I am very much still learning when it comes to in-ring stuff, timing in tag matches, cutting promos backstage. He's been very helpful to me and helping me learn different things. I was a fan of Ricky before even coming into AEW. If I would have been hearing this six months back, I would have been like, 'What? I'm teaming with who? Ricky Starks?' I feel so blessed to be in the situations I'm put in. He's so popular right now. For him to be teamed up with the new kid, 'Hey, I'm the new guy, we're teamed up now, I hope you like me and you dig what we got going here.' He's been cool to me and I think we're starting to build good chemistry together. It's cool to be in there with the Absolute," said Andretti.
Starks is set to face Jericho at AEW Revolution.
As for Andretti, he will face Guevara on the February 24 episode of AEW Rampage. Fans can check out the current lineup for Friday's Rampage by clicking here.
