His name is Darby Allin and he will welcome you to Jackass as the AEW star has been announced as a participant in the latest movie release from the franchise, Jackass 4.
The former TNT Champion is no stranger to dangerous and wild stunts in or out of the wrestling ring. The avid skater spends much of his time making videos of his skating escapades that has seen him share a half pipe with world-renowned skating kingpin, Tony Hawk.
Now Darby Allin is listed on Jackass 4’s IMDB page as a cast member alongside Hawk, as well as fellow AEW competitor and NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, rapper Post Malone, and comedian Eric André. All usual Jackass stars are listed as well with Allin set to share the screen with Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O, Chris Pontius, and Wee Man.
Allin discussed potentially being part of the movie in January in an interview with Endless Hustle, saying that he may have to miss some AEW dates to take part.
“The one event would be Jackass 4. I’ve talked to people and I’m like, ‘If this happens, I have to have time off.’ Not only is this going to help the brand of AEW and pop culture, it’s going to help my mind. It’s a bucket list thing, for sure. I’ve talked to Steve-O about it. Everything is so crazy with COVID that they can’t even start filming. They were a week or two into filming when it got shut down and now they’ve been holding it off.”
Darby Allin was due to face ‘All Ego’ Ethan Page in a Coffin Match on the 7th of July edition of AEW Dynamite emanating from Miami, Florida. However, that has now been pushed back after Allin and Sting attacked Page and his fellow Man Of The Year, Scorpio Sky on Dynamite. Page then announced he wanted to face Allin at one hundred percent so he called off the match for next week saying it may well happen at Fyter Fest. Fyter Fest is due to take place over two nights on the 14th and 21st of July with both events being held in Texas.
Jackass 4 is scheduled for a release date in the US of October 22nd.
