In 2018, Ricky Starks worked as an extra on WWE television, taking part in a segment where Roman Reigns was arrested.
Starks played a US Marshall, arresting Reigns, only for Reigns to resist and attack the officers.
Speaking to Brandon Walker of Rasslin, Starks recalled the segment and working with Reigns.
"When I showed up to work that day, they didn't say 'you're going to be a cop' or 'you're going to be a sheriff.' They called it something else. It was like the guys who sit in the office and when something cool happens, they throw on the vest. I was a fake (security guard) basically. If there was a drug bust in town, I'm going to show up late after SWAT already showed up. I don't know who that is. I went there, talked to Roman, put these cuffs on and they were really tight. He goes, 'I can't do anything while I have my hands cuffed, so, sorry ahead of time.' I went to grand him and he [double axe handles me]. We get to the corner and he starts stomping the shit out of me. He's a really great guy because afterward he apologized," he said.
Starks worked as an extra or enhancement talent a handful of times in WWE, including taking part in a segment with Ryback where he was slammed through a table. You can find Starks' comments on the Ryback segment by clicking here.
Starks is currently signed to AEW and is the reigning FTW Champion.
