Ricky Starks recently appeared on Throwing Down with Renee Paquette and Miesha Tate, and the current FTW Champion discussed a variety of topics, including CM Punk boosting morale backstage in AEW, Punk mentioning him in his Dynamite promo, and much more. Here are some of the highlights (via Fightful):

Ricky Starks on CM Punk boosting morale backstage in AEW: Its been great. I know that hes a hard worker and backstage, hes very mindful of everyone and their matches and making sure he talks to them and critiques them. Hes very approachable too. Having Punk back there is a big morale boost. A big morale boost.

On Punk calling him out in his promo on Dynamite: He called me out. I appreciate the spotlight there, but Im tied up with Brian Cage right now. I have to get through that before I move on top Punk and see what hes about. If it keeps drawing attention, Punk, keep my name in your mouth. Keep it going. I welcome it.
