Darby Allin is stoked to be paired with Sting and isn't worried about his physical well-being whatsoever.
Sting is slated to compete in a match for the first time since WWE Clash of Champions 2015 when he wrestled against Seth Rollins and got injured and subsequently retired. AEW announced in late January that Sting will team with Darby Allin to take on Team Taz members Ricky Starks and Brian Cage in a Street Fight at AEW Revolution.
Previously, Sting has expressed his interest in returning to the ring in some capacity since joining AEW, hinting at a potential cinematic match in the future.
When asked about Sting's health, Darby told talkSPORT, he believes Sting is good to go. To back up this claim, Darby cited a moment where he saw the WWE Hall of Famer jump the fence.
"We were walking around Jacksonville the other day. There was this six-foot fence. I jumped the fence and I told Sting ‘I’m going to take some photos’ because we were looking at some weird stuff in Jacksonville. I was like ‘I’m going to take some photos for you of this weird building’ and he’s on the other side of the fence that’s locked up. He’s like ‘what, you don’t think I’m going to jump this fence?’ He climbs up and he jumped the fence. So I’d say he’s good to go!"
Concerning his pairing with Sting, Darby said Sting liked the visual of working with him.
“He visualizes a lot of things. He likes characters and things like that so when he first saw my vignettes and my promos – whatever you call them – he was super hyped on them. He just thought they were so different and unique. So with the story we’ve been doing, I’ve been sending him all of these visual ideas and I’ve been talking in-depth to him. Like, ‘yo, this, this, this and this’ and he likes it. He really likes how my brain works with things. He’s very confident he’s in good hands.”
AEW Revolution is currently scheduled for February 27. Fans can keep up with the card through Fightful's events page.
