EXCLUSIVE: Darby Allin Wants To See THIS Legend In AEW

Darby Allin on the WWE legend whose brain he'd love to pick in AEW.


All Elite Wrestling TNT Champion Darby Allin was interviewed by WhatCulture’s Adam Wilbourn yesterday, touching on all kinds of topics relating to his professional wrestling career, including potential dream opponents, his long-term feud with Sammy Guevara, and more.

When asked about the one legend he’d love to have come to AEW so he could pick their brains, Allin answered with the following:-

“Probably ‘Stone Cold,’ just because I know the guy did it his way and he didn’t put up with sh*t. It’d be cool to pick the brain of somebody who just, you know, made it on top his way. It’s cool to just not put up with sh*t.”

Darby also spoke on what he’d learned from working with other legends in AEW:-

“It’s sick. I’ll send [Chris Jericho] promos when they’re done and I get met with ‘you crazy son of a b*tch!’ all the time. It’s cool to have that. I love the older wrestlers, the mentality and everything. If I’m picking anyone’s brain, it’s like a Jake ‘The Snake’, so it’s sick to have those guys there. I take full advantage of that.”

Allin will team with Cody Rhodes to face Powerhouse Hobbs and Ricky Starks on this week's Winter is Coming special.
