Darby Allin was interviewed after his match at AEW Revolution on Sunday about teaming up with Sting to take on Brian Cage and Ricky Starks in a street fight. Unsurprisingly Allin spoke glowingly about Sting and said it was an honor to work with him.
“It means the world to me to be teaming with Sting,” Allin said. “To have any part of his legendary career, especially the tail end, it’s a complete honor. We did a lot of work and we busted our asses out there.”
Sting has worked with many wrestling legends throughout his run with AEW and during this interview, he praised both Sting and Taz.
“A lot of it goes into them trusting me and seeing my vision,” said Allin. “We’ve been putting in this work for about a year now with Team Taz and six months with Sting. It’s like, me and Tony Khan just sticking to the vision, them trusting my vision. I visualized a lot of this match tonight and to put it out there and them not second guess my directing, it meant a lot to me.”
Allin also made it very clear that the title was still his main priority. This was in response to a question about his upcoming match on Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite.
“I’m the TNT Champion and I want to remind everyone about that,” said Allin. “Even though the title wasn’t on the line tonight I want to remind everybody why I’m champion in the first place. And Scorpio Sky, that’s gonna be the first step.”
“I see the messages and everyone says ‘Darby isn’t defending it.’ Well yeah; I was stuck with Team Taz and having to work with that. There was a lot of work put into that. And now I want to remind everyone why I’m TNT Champion, and it all starts with Scorpio Sky.”
