Darby Allin Wants To Plant An AEW Flag On Mount Everest

Darby Allin has grand ideas to represent AEW during Mount Everest climb

Darby Allin is set to tackle possibly the biggest challenge of his life in 2024, with the former AEW TNT Champion set to climb Mount Everest.

Allin has already drafted a will in case he dies during the arduous climb, but if he is successful he wants to honour AEW with a grand gesture, with Allin revealing his plans to Fightful:

“I said, ‘Hey, I’ve got this idea, if there’s a way to get more eyes on the company,’ like I had been doing with the Travis Pastrana and Tony Hawk stuff, ‘There’s more eyes to get on the company through extreme stunts. I’ll be the guinea pig for that. What about me climbing Mount Everest? No wrestler’s ever done that before. What if I just plant a big AEW flag on top of Mount Everest?’ I’m thinking of what we could get in return, you know? Interviews with Good Morning America or whatever it may be. I have a team that reached out to me from Discovery. We would document the whole thing. So it’s a way I want to give back to the company, so it’s not like homie going into the mountains and disappearing. There is a method to the madness that I want to give back. He [Tony Khan] was down at first, then he started thinking, ‘Wait, it’s Mount Everest. You might die.’ I said, ‘Tony, I think I got this.’ I really believe I got this. It’s a big thing to me to do,” said Allin.

Over 6,000 people are believed to have successfully scaled Everest in the last 100 years, with more than 310 people dying whilst attempting the feat.
