Darby Allin loves his partnership with Sting.
Allin and Sting have been paired together since Sting made his AEW debut in December 2020 and both men have seen the benefits, on-screen and off. At AEW Double or Nothing, Sting will compete in his first live action in-ring bout since 2015. And Allin says his partner is ready.
"I've been going down to his house in Texas and training," Darby told Stephanie Chase of Digital Spy. "He's not taking this lightly, he ain't taking this for granted. This is a lot, he has a lot to prove in this match, and he's been working at it for sure. Both of us are super excited because it's going to be a full crowd. It screws with the mind, I feel, when someone of his calibre, whose whole career was these insane crowd reactions, comes in during the pandemic. He's had some good, big reactions when he first came in but that was, like, half the building. So, packing that out, I can only imagine."
When discussing his partnership with Sting and why they work so well together, Allin said, "I knew it would work just because we have the same sense of, like, we're here for business, we're here to really just focus on business. Sting's not going to come up to me and gossip and stuff like that. So it feels natural for me to be around the veterans, because they don't have time and head space to even care about any of that stuff. If they'd have put me with a younger guy, I'd probably head-butt the wall."
Allin and Sting will team up to take on Ethan Page & Scorpio Sky on Sunday at AEW Double or Nothing.
