A recently signed name has praised the support that they have received since joining the company from a popular AEW star.
Action Andretti debuted at AEW: Winter is Coming in December 2022 and scored a shock victory over Chris Jericho.
Since then, he’s become a regular name in AEW, recently teaming with Ricky Starks.
Speaking on AEW Unrestricted, Andretti spoke about working with Starks, saying:
“He’s really good to work with. He’s very well-liked in AEW, so it’s cool to be paired up with somebody who is so over in the business.
“He’s been very helpful to me, just learning-wise because I am very much still learning when it comes to in-ring stuff, timing in tag matches, cutting promos backstage.
“He’s been very helpful to me and helping me learn different things.
“I was a fan of Ricky before even coming into AEW. If I would have been hearing this six months back, I would have been like, ‘What? I’m teaming with who? Ricky Starks?
“I feel so blessed to be in the situations I’m put in. He’s so popular right now. For him to be teamed up with the new kid, ‘Hey, I’m the new guy, we’re teamed up now, I hope you like me and you dig what we got going here.’
“He’s been cool to me and I think we’re starting to build good chemistry together. It’s cool to be in there with the Absolute.”
Andretti had previously revealed that he wasn’t at the show expecting to debut against Chris Jericho and was shocked to find it was going to be a match and not just a squash.
