Ricky Starks, Former NWA Television Champion

On Monday’s episode of Busted Open Radio, Ricky Starks has confirmed his departure from the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA). The former NWA World Television Champion mentioned that he was no longer part of the NWA and was now one of the “hottest free agents” in wrestling.


Starks stated that his contract had come up and both sides mutually agreed to part ways, but Starks insisted the parting was not bitter. On Monday, Starks released a vignette on his Social Media to hype his new focus on being a free agent.

With the launch of NWA Powerrr in the fall of 2019, Starks would become one of their young stars, winning the NWA World Television Championship in the tournament finals, against Trevor Murdoch, at NWA Hard Times on January 24 of this year.
