Ricky Starks Discusses Comparisons To The Rock, Looking Like A Star | Exclusive

Unless he's just finished with a workout, you'll rarely catch Ricky Starks in a t-shirt or without his signature gold chain. While many wrestlers make their entrance wearing their latest t-shirt or piece of merchandise, Starks is dripped in Gucci looking like he just stepped off the Hollywood lot. 

Many fans have compared Starks' style to the style of The Rock, who was famous for wearing $500 shirts.

Speaking to Fightful, the AEW star said he's not trying to imitate anyone, he can't help it if he has style.

"That's how I dress. People are like, 'Oh, he's trying to be like someone.' No, that's how I like to dress. I like nice clothes and fashion. No one has ever told me that I can't dress a certain way. I have people that will clown on me back there, but it doesn't matter. If anything, I'd rather win the Best Dressed Award over anything. The issue is, fans are used to people coming out in Nikes and basketball shorts and they see someone like me and it goes up against what they're used to and they go, 'This dude looks wack because he's wearing Gucci slip-on shoes with a Gucci belt and a knit top and gold chain.' Dude, I look fly as hell," he said. "I just don't get why, if someone dresses nice, why do you have to be The Rock?"

Showing how much he cares about his style, Starks was frustrated he wasn't wearing his gold chain for the interview as he just finished a workout.
