Ricky Starks recently joined Renee Paquette and UFC legend Miesha Tate as a guest on their "Throwing Down" show for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During his appearance on the program, the AEW star and FTW Champion spoke about CM Punk being helpful behind-the-scenes since joining AEW, possibly wrestling him in a match and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On CM Punk being helpful behind-the-scenes since joining AEW: “It’s been great,” Starks said of having Punk backstage. “I know that he’s a hard worker and backstage, he’s very mindful of everyone and their matches and making sure he talks to them and critiques them. He’s very approachable too. Having Punk back there is a big morale boost. A big morale boost.”

On possibly wrestling Punk: “He called me out. I appreciate the spotlight there, but I’m tied up with Brian Cage right now. I have to get through that before I move on top Punk and see what he’s about. If it keeps drawing attention, Punk, keep my name in your mouth. Keep it going. I welcome it.”
