On tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite, former NWA Television Champion Ricky Starks came out to challenge Cody for the AEW TNT Championship. He failed to take the title from Cody but Tony Khan just announced Starks has signed with AEW.
Thank you @starkmanjones for a great effort tonight. While he didn’t win the open challenge & the TNT Title, he opened a lot of eyes on #AEWDynamite.
