Darby Allin – “I’d Rather Have A Short Career & Just Push Hard Every Day”

Darby Allin

Darby Allin won’t be giving up his high-risk in-ring style as he says he’d rather have a short career and push himself to his physical limits every time he wrestles.

The former TNT Champion has lit up All Elite Wrestling with his all-or-nothing style, winning over legions of new fans every week on AEW Dynamite. The Seattle-based star has formed a partnership with WWE Hall Of Famer Sting since ‘The Icon’ shockingly debuted for the company in December 2020.

Together they took on Team Taz’s Brian Cage and Ricky Starks in an incredible, cinematic Street Fight at Revolution in March of this year. At Double Or Nothing in May, they once again teamed up to see off the challenge of Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page.

Speaking on the Wrestling Perspectives podcast, Darby Allin discussed his approach to wrestling saying he’ll come pushing as hard as he can for as long as he can.

Allin explained:

“I’m all in or nothing, for the most part, and I always made a commitment to myself that I’d rather have a real short career and then just push it hard every day, then just try to focus on outside projects when the time’s up. As of right now, I feel like I’m just gonna keep going and going and going until my wheels fall off but I feel wonderful right now. I’ve been doing DDP Yoga with Dallas over in his house and I’m insane about physical therapy and you know, I don’t take any drugs. I don’t take aspirin or anything like that. I just take a bunch of ice baths and you know, yoga and just… yeah, man.”

Whether it’s being thrown down concrete stairs or being dragged behind a car in a bodybag, Allin has shown he has no fear of any kind of stunts either in the ring or out.

Allin has been challenged by Scorpio Sky and Ethan Page to find a different tag team partner to face them, saying they only lost at Double Or Nothing because of Sting.
