With the NWA gearing up for its first TV tapings in decades, happening September 30 and October 1 in Atlanta, Georgia, expect the NWA to announce a flurry of signings to compliment its roster that currently features NWA World’s Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis, NWA World Women’s Champion Allysin Kay, James Storm, and former IMPACT World Champion Eli Drake.
Ricky Starks has long been a part of the Extra Talented tag team that also features Aaron Solow, but the standout from the Texas indies has an impressive resume as a singles wrestler as well. Starting out in the Texas indie scene in 2012, Starks began with the likes of Anarchy Championship Wrestling (ACW) and Inspire Pro, and has worked in Europe with the likes of PROGRESS Wrestling, Fight Club: PRO, and more, as well as having a tour with Japan’s DDT Pro earlier this year.
