Darby Allin Planning To Stick With AEW Long-Term

Darby Allin is All Elite for the foreseeable future

Darby Allin has been signed to AEW since all the way back in 2019, and has since earned the privilege of being called one of the “four pillars” of the company, along with MJF, Jack Perry, and Sammy Guevara. His career in AEW has been a star-making one for sure, with reigns as both TNT Champion and AEW World Tag Team Champion, in addition to an iconic tag team run with Sting. 

After all this success, Allin is not going anywhere any time soon, pledging his long-term allegiance to Tony Khan’s promotion in an interview with Fightful

"I’m here long-term. It’s not like I have this crazy eight-year contract or anything, but I’m here long-term. I’m having the time of my life. Everything I get to do outside of the ring and everything I get to do with my family and all these other projects. This fall, I’m directing my first full-length film. There is so much stuff. I wanted to be the poster child to any wrestler that have so much interests and hobbies outside of just wrestling where you can work on things. I feel like AEW gives me that platform. 

“If you think about it, ain’t no place that is going to let me skate with Tony Hawk or climb Mount Everest or go to Nitro Circus and backflip a tricycle. My life doesn’t begin and end with wrestling. I feel there is so much I need to do outside to be fulfilled. AEW gives me everything. I have zero complaints. It’s so fun to be with a start up company, and if you’re as good as you think you are, you can build this from the ground up. A lot of people feel, ‘It’s a safe bet if I go somewhere else that is established and been around for 30-40 years,’ but I feel if you’re as good as you think you are, you can build this house from the ground up.”

Allin also touched on how great it is for kids to dress up as him for Halloween and put more eyes on the product. It was recently revealed that Sting's son was training to become a wrestler and sleeping in a tent in Allin's garden.
