AEW’s Tony Schiavone: CM Punk Has Made Darby Allin An Even Bigger Star
“It’s not about wins and losses you freaking dumbasses. It’s about making stars”
Before a punch was thrown, Darby Allin was elevated just by CM Punk calling him out on his return to wrestling on AEW Rampage in August, and despite eventually losing to Punk at All out, AEW’s Tony Schiavone thinks Punk had made Darby an even bigger star.
Speaking on the AEW Unrestricted podcast, Schiavone said Darby’s stock has risen despite defeat:
“I know there’s a lot of trolls on here, as they are on social media. They’re gonna say, ‘CM Punk put Darby over? No, he didn’t. CM Punk beat Darby.’ It’s not about wins and losses you freaking dumbasses. It’s about making stars, and CM Punk made Darby an even bigger star and elevated Darby’s career that night. What she’s [Aubrey Edwards] talking about, and I wholeheartedly agree that these veterans and known stars coming in working with our younger talent is making everybody better. It’s not wins or losses anymore. It’s not.”
Punk is now involved in an angle with team Taz, and is slated to take on Powerhouse Hobbs at AEW: Grand Slam this week.
