AEW's Ricky Starks shares plans for clothing brand and acting career
AEW's Ricky Starks is known as much for his great sense of style as he is for his promos, so it's no surprise that he plans to venture into the fashion world.
Starks, who defeated Chris Jericho at Revolution 2023, exclusively spoke with Digital Spy about his vision for his clothing brand, which he plans to launch soon.
"It's my small little step into my own clothing brand. It's nothing crazy or anything like that," Starks explained. "I'm trying to push for more of luxury streetwear, so once I get the online shop setup, it will be more like boutique fashion.
He continued: "What I mean by that is, like, small pieces, small limited pieces, that may drop in like different batches.
"But that's what I'm working on so far, and I think that's a pretty cool adventure, just because it's something within my playground that I want to see if there's some type of intrigue to it."
But fashion isn't the only thing Starks has his eye on outside of wrestling. The former FTW Champion also sees acting as a possible avenue for him.
"Definitely getting into acting, that's a big thing for me, getting into acting and getting into some type of hosting," Starks said. "I'd like to host, I'd like to go on different guests' interview shows — Hot Ones being one of them."
He added: "So there's a lot of things that I'd like to do and that I will accomplish. It's just a matter of getting through the wrestling portion first and, you know, just accomplishing what I want to [...] and then one day just being like: 'Alright, I'm done.'"

Starks has already ventured into reality TV, having been seen in the AEW series Rhodes to the Top.
Speaking about his experience filming the TBS show, Starks said: "Doing Rhodes to the Top was really fun. I thought it gave the viewers another chance to see another side of me beyond just the AEW wrestling shows.
"I had a really fun time and I really enjoyed doing it actually, I had a lot of fun. I know that sometimes the schedule for those can be pretty gruelling, but for me, personally, I had a blast."
