All Elite Wrestling has spared no expense when it comes to entrance music. Top talents like Jon Moxley, “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry and Hook have made established tunes their regular theme songs, while Kenny Omega and the Young Bucks recently entered the ring for Kansas’ “Carry on Wayward Son” for their return match in AEW full equipment. This precedent of licensing well known songs has made its mark on the AEW roster as a rising star hopes to bring back his independent scene entry music for at least one night.
Speaking Watching the throne podcast, Ricky Starks revealed that one of his dreams is to walk the AEW trail to Kanye West’s “Touch The Sky.”
“My goal is to get the rights to play Touch The Sky at least once for one of my matches. That’s the goal,” said Starks. “I’m putting it out there. I’m manifesting this happening. That’s what I want out of this whole thing. The day I get that, I’m pretty much going to set Twitter on fire.”
Starks isn’t the only AEW star to have used a well-known rap song on the independent circuit. Before using his custom “Better Than You” theme, newly crowned AEW World Champion Maxwell Jacob Friedman would hit the Limitless Wrestling arenas for Drake’s “Trophies.”
The Absolute One commented that he was attracted to “Touch The Sky”, especially because of its music video, which made him realize that the tune is “real stadium music”.
“I had to rewatch the music video. I heard the song in a movie and I never thought about thinking about it in that kind of light,” Starks continued. “Eventually I used it as my theme song and it kind of started to take off. I’ll meet other Kanye West fans and I’ll tell them my entrance and they’ll start singing Touch The Sky right away. It’s real stadium music. . “
If Starks continues the trajectory he’s on, it may only be a matter of time before he justifies “real stadium music” for his entrance. Starks will meet Ethan Page in the finals of the AEW World Title Eliminator tournament this Wednesday AEW dynamite. If he wins, he will face MJF next month for the AEW World Championship AEW Dynamite: Winter is coming.
AEW dynamite airs tonight at 8:00 PM ET on TBS.
