Ricky Starks is sidelined with a neck injury.
Voices of Wrestling reports Starks has been diagnosed with a fractured neck and is expected to miss three months of actions. Fightful was able to clarify that it is a "slight fracture." Starks is expected to remain on television in some capacity and surgery won't be required.
Starks landed roughly on his neck during a german suplex spot against Hangman Page on the April 21 episode of AEW Dynamite, but took to social media after the match to say, "I’m good! Thank you DDP Yoga for my flexibility."

He would team with Powerhouse Hobbs against Aaron Frye & Brick Aldridge on the May 4 episode of AEW Dark (taped on April 22) but never tagged in. The bout lasted 32 seconds.
