Darby Allin Hails Tony Hawk ‘New TNT Champion’ As Legend Skateboards With Title

Darby Allin

AEW TNT Champion Darby Allin has taken to Twitter to post a video of the legendary Tony Hawk skateboarding while wearing Allin’s TNT Championship.

While Allin retained his title successfully on this past Wednesday’s Dynamite against Scorpio Sky, skateboarding icon Tony Hawk would borrow the belt as Allin posted a photo of the legend skating while wearing the title, captioning it, “The new TNT champion @tonyhawk.”

The video shows Hawk, who has appeared on AEW Dynamite alongside Darby Allin in the past, flawlessly landing some tricks in a half pipe before Darby Allin raises his hand. Hawk then absolves all responsibility and gives Darby Allin his championship back.

That apparent open-mindedness, of course, is something Darby Allin has been able to take advantage of, not just by excelling in the ring, but also creatively outside of it – as he told Inside The Ropes‘ Lead Writer Gary Cassidy following the Street Fight at AEW Revolution where Allin showed off his creativity as a filmmaker.

“I would say I was involved in 90% of it. I was doing damn near everything that night we were… A lot, lot of work put into this and I was up for weeks helping produce this, so it was a lot. It was a good experience, you know, because my ass dropped out of film school so this was kind of a test to see my directing skills, so it was fun. I had a good time and everybody trusting me, and Ricky busting his ass, too, and making everything, so it was an honour to be part of this.”

You can catch AEW Dynamite every Wednesday Night at 1am on FITE TV.
