Darby Allin Says He Directed The Vignette Of Sting Watching His Career Highlights At AEW Revolution

Darby Allin came up with the idea for the vignette that aired ahead of Sting's last match at AEW Revolution 2024.

Darby Allin has full creative autonomy in AEW and one way he flexes that creativity is through unique vignettes that air ahead of major matches.

During a recent interview with Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp, Darby Allin explained the process of how these promos come together and revealed that the vignette featuring Sting in an empty theater watching highlights of his career from AEW Revolution 2024 was his idea and another vignette which he directed.

"I directed them. I did everything. It was literally me and my friend Max Yoder. He doesn’t work for AEW, he’s a freelance guy that films skate videos. I was the one that came up with the concept of the movie theater and watching his career. I was there directing it. Me and Max directed it. I’m behind all of that. It’s cool that AEW is like, ‘Darby, do whatever you want.’ ‘Cool.’ It goes beyond what you see in the ring. Just overall presentation, the promos, everything."

Adam Copeland had previously revealed that Darby helped him plan and shoot his AEW debut vignette which aired at AEW WrestleDream. Learn more here.
