Darby Allin discusses his partnership with Sting.
Months after coming into AEW in 2020, Sting was partnered with Darby Allin. Together, the duo have formed a special bond on screen and have been involved in a number of high level matchups against other top teams in All Elite Wrestling.
In a new interview with Fightful, Allin talked about the partnership with Sting and how it came together organically.
"Yeah, it happened really organically. I don’t think anything was planned. When he made his debut, it was never planned for him to be teamed with Darby. It kinda just started happening naturally. He was a fan of what I do in the ring and outside the ring. He’s like, ‘You’re a very creative individual. One day, people will be working for you.’ I was like, ‘I don’t know, man.’ We just started shooting ideas back and forth, it kept growing and growing. Next thing I knew we were teaming, and never thing I knew he was returning to the ring live. It wasn’t a cinematic match. It was live at Double or Nothing a few years ago against Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky. It was something special. He saw that he could trust me in the ring with coming up with ideas and from there, man, I think we’ve been attached at the hip."
When Fightful brought up the fact that Allin & Sting are undefeated and should be qualified for a AEW World Tag Team Championship match, Allin noted that the wrestling legend isn't really focused on titles.
"Well, you know the thing with Sting, man, he don’t want to go for championships. That’s never been a goal of his. He never wanted to fight for the championship. I can respect that. He’s like, ‘Give somebody the opportunity to do it that it could elevate their career.’ He don’t need to get his career more elevated. Maybe he’ll change his mind. Maybe he’ll be like, ‘Yo, FTR. What’s up?’"
Sting and Allin last teamed together on the March 22 episode of AEW Dynamite, where they teamed with Orange Cassidy to defeat The Butcher, The Blade, & Kip Sabian.
Elsewhere in the interview, Allin expanded upon the notion that he wants to climb Mount Everest. Fans can learn more by clicking here.
