Darby Allin Says He’s Going To Present Title In A New Light

Darby Allin, who is one of the most unique, unorthodox, yet talented wrestler not only in AEW, but in all of pro wrestling as well and the current TNT Champion recently spoke with Sports Illustrated on a few topics related to his career in pro wrestling as well as how he is going to present the TNT Title in a new light.

Below are the highlights:

On how he is going to present the TNT Title in a new light:

“I’m going to create something that is entirely mine, and I’m going to present the championship in a new light. Work doesn’t end for me on Wednesdays. This is a seven-day life for me. It’s a heavy task to make this title mine, but I’m up for it.”

On how he was pissed that he was left off of last year’s Full Gear card:

“I was pissed off. That drove me up a wall. So I worked harder and proved people wrong. Fast forward a year, winning the title from Cody, and it couldn’t have been any more different from a year ago.”

On how he still can’t believe he’s getting to live his dream:

“I still can’t believe it. In the eighth grade, I’m the guy who had no real friends. I was such a loner. During school break I would do these weird challenges with myself, like sitting in a walk-in closet and be in complete isolation. Now, to have all these people be huge fans and supporters, it’s insane. I never thought that was going to happen.”

On how he burned a lot of bridges but always stayed true to himself:

“I told myself I was going to be a pro wrestler, but I said I was going to do it my way. I burned a lot of bridges sticking to my guns, but I’m being me, 100%. I’m still me. When you watch you get a real product, and you’re going to see s— with me you’ve never seen before.”
