Darby Allin Hopes To Fight Bryan Danielson In Seattle, Wants MJF In A 'Lights Out' Match One Day

Darby Allin has big goals for the immediate future.

Darby Allin is one of the "Four Pillars" of AEW. Along with MJF, Jungle Boy, Sammy Guevara, and others, Darby helped establish AEW as a place for new faces in wrestling to grab the brass ring.

Along with those pillars, major wrestling superstars such as Sting, Miro, Chris Jericho, CM Punk, and Bryan Danielson have all come to AEW looking to help grow the brand to new heights. Darby Allin has worked with all of those names except for one so far, Bryan Danielson.

Currently, Bryan Danielson is focused on trying to wrestle away the AEW Title from Adam Page, but Darby Allin wants his shot against the American Dragon whenever AEW comes to Seattle. Bryan is, of course, from Aberdeen, Washington, and Darby Allin has roots in Seattle.

Darby explains why he wants this match and what he likes about Danielson during a recent Bleacher Report AMA.

"When we go to Seattle, Bryan Danielson. The fact that he has no ego with us: he can wrestle on Rampage. He can wrestle on Dynamite. He can wrestle on Dark. There's no ego. He's not like the type that's 'I only wrestle on pay-per-views.' It's like, 'No, I'm going to wrestle every single weekend.' I want someone that's hungry like that to wrestle against myself. It's fun, man."

As for his rivalry with fellow pillar, Maxwell Jacob Friedman, Darby says he has plans to get revenge against MJF in an unsanctioned match in the future.

“A lights-out match. I would love to get in there because I played his game. I was beating him in his game, but it’s kind of hard to cheat in a lights-out match.”

Darby also opened up about his relationship with Sting and commented on whether or not he is planning on splitting up from him anytime soon.

"He's amazing as a mentor. He's the most humble guy. We sit there all day and just talk. As for being someone I look up to, I was too young when he was killing it at the top of his game, but the older I get the more I'm able to appreciate him."

Regarding a split up, he said, “That's not in the cards yet, ever. It's different when there's two young guys trying to prove to each other they're better, but Sting has done everything twice. He has no ego. There is no reason he'd want to split up.”

Darby will be in action on tonight's episode of Rampage against another legend, Billy Gunn. Fightful will have live coverage.
