Ricky Starks Is Confident In Himself, 'I Took It To Chris Jericho'

Ricky Starks believes in himself.

On Wednesday's AEW Dynamite, Ricky Starks went toe-to-toe on the microphone with Chris Jericho, running him, Sammy Guevara, and Daniel Garcia down as they stood on the ramp. Starks is coming off of a loss to MJF at AEW Dynamite Winter Is Coming, but is jumping back into things against Jericho.

Speaking on Casual Conversations, Starks was asked about entering into a feud with Jericho.

"I did have a little bit of an issue where...iron sharpens iron at the end of the day. I don't care about, 'Oh, you put on a banger of a match with so and so,' that's cool and all, but baby, I'm trying to learn. I'm trying to progress. I don't want to be the same Ricky that I was last week. I want to be a more improved version of myself. I was disappointed that, in my whole two years in AEW, I only had a match with Sting, and even then, that was a bit of a slow burn. I was disappointed that I didn't get the chance to wrestle (CM) Punk because, in my head, as you saw with the promo with Max, I can stand, shoulder to shoulder with these people. In Max's situation, I can stand over him. Now that Jericho has stepped into the fray, I'm ready. I'm not scared, I'm not nervous. As you can see on Dynamite, I took it to Jericho and I had no problems with that because I'm so confident in myself at this point. I've been doing it since 2011, I should know exactly who I am and what I'm about. The progression I'm about to go through, in such a short span, is going to be wild," he said.

Starks challenged Jericho to meet him in the ring on the January 4 episode of AEW Dynamite.

The segment ended with Jake Hager, Jericho, Garcia, and Guevara attacking Starks before Action Andretti made the save.
