Tony Schiavone Confirms New AEW Signing – 18-Year-Old Billie Starkz

18-year-old wrestling prodigy Billie Starkz has been signed by All Elite Wrestling, says veteran announcer Tony Schiavone.

Schiavone, who works as a broadcaster, producer, and special advisor in AEW, claimed that the promotion had signed Starkz during a recent episode of his What Happened When podcast with Conrad Thompson. This came as the duo were talking about Nick Wayne, whom AEW signed when he was 16 years old – and is now set to debut on Dynamite after turning 18 in July.

Starkz has wrestled in Tony Khan’s network of promotions several times since December 2022, when she served as an AEW Dark opponent for Dr. Britt Baker DMD. Most recently, Billie fell in a TBS Championship challenge against Jade Cargill, with the bout airing on the 7 April Battle Of The Belts VI special.

Billie is also 1-1 on ROH on HonorClub, facing Trish Adora and Miranda Alize at the brand’s February tapings.

A wrestler since 2018 despite her youth, Starks already has 365 documented matches on her CAGEMATCH profile. Billie has been a staple on the American independent scene for several years now, competing for such promotions as GCW, BLP, and ACTION while going through high school.
