Darby Allin On Why He Doesn’t Watch WWE Or Other Companies

TNT Champion Darby Allin recently spoke with Alfred Konuwa of Forbes on a number of topics, including why he doesn’t watch WWE or other pro wrestling companies, on other skaters doing the same thing, and on his past life as a skateboarder and how it does or doesn’t compare to his life as a wrestler.

Below are the highlights:

On not watching WWE or other pro wrestling companies: “I just watch skating videos. That’s it. I don’t want to be inspired by anything. I want my body of work to be its own thing.”

On skaters doing the same thing: “I know it’s like that with skaters, a lot of skaters don’t watch certain videos because they don’t want their skating to be inspired just like I do with wrestling. I respect everybody’s hard work and stuff, but there comes a point where I just want to be in my own brain about things, I don’t want to be inspired by anybody.”

On his past life as a skateboarder and how it does or doesn’t compare to his life as a wrestler: “With skateboarding, I felt like my life was more outlaw. I could really go and do whatever I wanted, and when I broke my ankle, so be it. But there’s a lot more responsibilities with wrestling, but at the same time, when I would fall on a skateboard I wouldn’t have that adrenaline rush for people. But when you fall in a wrestling ring, there’s thousands of people cheering you on and there’s nothing that beats that feeling. I really couldn’t tell a story on a skateboard as you do in the ring, but the only story I would tell on a skateboard is ‘hopefully I don’t die on this thing.’”
