Update On Darby Allin Climbing Mount Everest
AEW star Darby Allin gives an update on his goal of scaling Everest.
AEW's Darby Allin has given an update on his goal to climb Mount Everest. Speaking in a recent interview on BJ & Migs Daily Podcast, Darby explained:
"If I'm the guinea pig to do crazy stuff to get more eyes on the company, let me be that guy. That's why I want to climb Mount Everest. I want to be the first wrestler to climb Mount Everest. I want to be the first wrestler to go to space. To do everything. [...] I legit have no fear and am totally at peace if I die at Mount Everest. That's why I'm like, 'Let me do that. Let me make history.' I feel there is only so much we can do in the confines of a wrestling show. I'm thinking outside the box. How do we get more random buzz for people who don't watch wrestling? If you see it on the news, 'pro wrestler climbs Mount Everest.'
"I go to Switzerland in October, train there. I go to China in November. I go to New Zealand in February, and actual Mount Everest is April. I've never climbed any mountains before. I wanted to go zero to 100."
As many know, Mount Everest is the highest mountain above sea level on Earth. It has an elevation of 8,848.86m and is located in the Himalayas. The border of Nepal and China runs across its summit point.
