Wrestling fans love comparisons. It’s just the way things go. Everyone is looking for that next Shawn Michaels or that next Jeff Hardy – and one man touted as the latter is AEW TNT Champion Darby Allin! The ‘Face of TNT’ told Inside The Ropes‘ Kenny McIntosh how he’s “never searched” to be compared to the Charismatic Enigma, but said if it’s there, it’s there.
“I feel fine about it. You know, I never searched to get compared to Jeff Hardy, like I never care to compare – but if it’s there, it’s there. But to me, there’s always one Darby Allin and one Jeff Hardy.”
Allin would also speak of his desire not only to get in the ring with Jeff Hardy but one man who is closer to home – Jeff’s brother Matt Hardy!
“I would love to step in the ring with someone who is as creative and driven as artistically as he is, I feel like he would always be able to go. Even with Matt, I want to step in the ring with him and just create some art.”
Darby Allin also opened up to ITRWrestling.com about how Jon Moxley is his “go-to guy” in AEW and much more.
