Darby Allin has already faced some of the top names in AEW, but he's ready to welcome Malakai Black to the company in a potential dream match.
Black made his AEW debut at AEW Dynamite Road Rager, attacking Arn Anderson and Cody Rhodes. Beyond his in-ring ability, Allin is impressed with Black's creativity and how he's always thinking about wrestling.
"I know this sounds weird because he literally just showed up, but I'd say Tommy End [Malakai Black]," replied Allin when asked a dream match in AEW at Card Collector Con (via Sportsdudeheinz Show). "Somebody like him, who has that creative side and does stuff on his own, I find that captivating. I know that sounds generic because he literally just showed up on Wednesday but nobody gets my gears turning more than him, like, 'okay, we can do some stuff and that would be a lot of fun.' I like people that, whoever shows up to work on Wednesday, when they get home on Thursday, their mind is still working. It's not a one-day job. They do it seven days a week. That's how my brain is, I can't stop thinking. Anybody else like that, that has passion like that, I want to work with. Everyone else that treats it (as a once-a-week job), they can go to hell."
Before Black made his AEW debut last Wednesday, he released a short film to showcase his new persona. Allin has often been praised for his videos and vignettes, many of which have aired on AEW television.
Allin will have his hands full with Ethan Page on Wednesday's Dynamite as the two clash in a Coffin Match.
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
