Darby Allin saw AEW Revolution's Street Fight as a test of his directing skills.
At the event, Allin and Sting defeated Ricky Starks and Brian Cage in an abandoned warehouse-set street fight. They overcame a numerical disadvantage too, as Will Hobbs and Hook got involved, trying to tip the scales in favor of Team Taz.
In the post-show media scrum (seen above), the TNT Champion was asked about his experience working with Sting and Taz, replying that he appreciates the fact that everyone trusted his vision and allowed him to see it through. Here is his full response:
"A lot of it goes into them trusting me and seeing my vision. We've been putting this work into about a year now with Team Taz and six months with Sting. Me and Tony Khan just sticking to the vision and them trusting my vision because I visualized a lot of this match tonight, and for them to put it out there and not second guess my directing meant a lot to me. They had a lot to say during this whole process."
When asked how involved he was in the creation of the match, and what that process looked like, Allin shared the following:
"I would say I was involved in 90% of it. I was doing damn near everything that night. We were, a lot, a lot of work put into this. I was up for weeks helping produce this, so it was a lot. It was a good experience, you know because my ass dropped out of film school, so this was kind of a test to see my directing skills. I had a good time and then everybody trusting me. Ricky busting his ass too and making everything, so it was an honor to be apart of this."
Up next for Darby is a TNT Title defence versus Scorpio Sky on the March 10 episode of Dynamite.
