Allin Reveals Why Sting Is Still Good To Go Even At Age 61

It was previously reported that TNT Champion Darby Allin will be teaming up with pro wrestling legend Sting to face Brian Cage and Ricky Starks of Team Taz in a Street Fight at AEW Revolution on March 7.

There have been some rumors and speculations that AEW will have the Street Fight as a cinematic match, but that has yet to be confirmed.

Sting, being 61 years of age, has a number of people showing a lot of concern surrounding his health. This will be Sting’s first match since returning to action against WWE Superstar Seth Rollins back in September of 2015.

While having a conversation with Alex McCarthy of talkSport, Darby Allin talked about the concerns of people regarding Sting’s health and assured everyone including McCarthy that even at 61 years of age, “The Icon” Sting is good to go.

This is what Darby Allin said:

“We were walking around Jacksonville the other day.” “There was this six-foot fence. I jumped the fence and I told Sting ‘I’m going to take some photos’ because we were looking at some weird stuff in Jacksonville.”

“I was like ‘I’m going to take some photos for you of this weird building’ and he’s on the other side of the fence that’s locked up. And he’s like ‘what, you don’t think I’m going to jump this fence?’ He climbs up and he jumped the fence. So I’d say he’s good to go!”

Allin then talked about it being a huge thing for him to be in charge of telling Sting’s story at the tail-end of The Icon’s career and that there is a lot of responsibility and it’s amazing to have that put on him since he thrives in these situations.

This is what Darby Allin said:

“That’s a huge thing for me to be in charge of telling his story at the tail-end of his career.”“You’re writing history here and I really don’t want anybody to go back and say ‘Oh, you know, when he got with Darby Allin it was kind of like not good’ or whatever you would say.”

“So to me, there’s a lot of responsibility and it’s amazing to have that put on me. I thrive in these situations.”

Allin then talked about how Sting visualizes a lot of things and how Sting likes characters and things like that so when he first saw his vignettes and his promos, Sting was super hyped on them and The Icon thought they were so different and unique, which is why Sting wanted to work with him.

This is what Darby Allin said:

“He visualizes a lot of things. He likes characters and things like that so when he first saw my vignettes and my promos – whatever you call them – he was super hyped on them. He just thought they were so different and unique. So with the story we’ve been doing, I’ve been sending him all of these visual ideas and I’ve been talking in-depth to him.”

“Like, ‘yo, this, this, this and this’ and he likes it. He really likes how my brain works with things. He’s very confident he’s in good hands.”
