AEW's Darby Allin Denies His "Best In The World" Promo Was About CM Punk

He claims it was about Sammy Guevara

Darby Allin has claimed his "best in the world" promo was not about CM Punk. 

The Voice Of The Voiceless hasn't wrestled since 2014, but he is reportedly set to return to the squared circle at one of All Elite Wrestling's upcoming Chicago shows in August or September.

While there has been no confirmation from AEW, the promotion heavily teased Punk's arrival on the July 28 edition of Dynamite and multiple references to the former WWE Champion were littered throughout the show.

This included a promo from Darby Allin, who said: "I'll be in Chicago. You know, I've been around a lot of men in this world that have laid claim to how they're the greatest. There is only one place to really prove that - right here, in AEW. Even, if you think you are the best in the world."

Allin has denied the promo was about Punk, though, and the former TNT Champion has claimed he was instead referring to Sammy Guevara.

"No, that's more Sammy Guevara [we were alluding to] because he calls himself the best ever. Yeah, well people read into it too much. Sammy Guevara, [he] calls himself the best ever so... It's cool dude. It's awesome that people actually care and wanna know what's going on, so," Darby said during a meet-and-greet at the Asylum Wrestling Store.
