Darby Allin Reveals Why He Won't Work Another AEW Cinematic Match

Darby Allin speaks about why he wouldn't partake in another AEW cinematic match.

AEW's Darby Allin recently spoke with Renee Paquette on The Sessions, and discussed memories of the cinematic match between himself, Sting and Team Taz. He also mentioned his dislike for partaking in cinematic matches, explaining:

“The Cinematic match was kinda hell on Earth. I get thrown through a door and it’s like ‘Cut! Do that again.’ You get your adrenaline so high and then you have to stop for so long, and then go so high. There was this part in the cinematic match where I was on the second story, and I was throwing a bat down to Sting, like just a baseball bat. Right before we were gonna do this scene, Tony [Khan] comes like, ‘Cut! Cut! Cut!’ He’s like ‘Don’t you know how physics works? He’s gonna break Sting’s face!’ [...] And Sting’s all like, ‘No, we’re gonna do this. It’s too cool not to do.’ ‘No! It’s going to break your face if you don’t catch it!’ That was like the first and only time I ever really stopped and thought — because normally if you think too much about things, it will throw you off. But Sting was whispering to me, ‘Dude, just throw the bat!’ And we did it anyway, and he caught it like one-handed perfect.

"I remember we were filming from 12 noon until like six in the morning. It was super fun, but I would never want to do it again."

Darby and Sting's cinematic match took place at AEW Revolution 2021 against Team Taz.
