In an interview with Forbes, Ricky Starks spoke about how hard it is to get TV time in AEW and said that everyone in the company is aware that it’s a team effort. Here are highlights:

On his team with Big Bill: “When we first got together, I don’t think anyone expected how things ending up turning out out. It’s still kinda up in the air…I don’t really know what it holds for me because we weren’t supposed to be a tag team.”

On having goals in AEW: “I’ve publicly gone on record and said how much I want to wrestle Kenny Omega, and maybe I need to stop doing that because every time I talk about someone I want to wrestle publicly, it changes. I had someone ask me my goal and I can’t tell you because every time I make one it changes immediately. I would love to say I have goals, but I really don’t. Obviously, I’d love to be AEW World Champion, but every time I make a goal, it never ends up going the way I had envisioned it. So, I think I’m gonna try something different.”

On the amount of TV time the roster gets: “It’s always gonna be challenging because you only have so much TV time allotted and you have a growing number of people on the roster, so there’s gonna be challenges there. It’s really about who stands out and who steps up to the plate when given the chance. There are things that are out of my control that I don’t have an answer for…and that’s just how it is. You just have to deal with it. I can only control as much as I can control. It’s a team effort. We’re all working for the same goal, and if you don’t follow the same goal, maybe this isn’t the place for you.”
