According to Schiavone, Starks has been subjected to a ’30-day suspension from participating in in-ring competition.’ However, during this segment, Starks disclosed that he had obtained a manager’s license, assuring that viewers will continue to see him each week on Collision.
Due to the extended duration of this ‘suspension,’ it implies that Starks will not be able to wrestle at both AEW All In on August 27 and AEW All Out on September 3, 2023.
