Ahead of his highly-anticipated bout this Sunday at AEW Double or Nothing, Darby Allin made an appearance as a guest on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast.
The former TNT champion talked about various topics, most notably his favorite match before coming to AEW.
AEW star Darby Allin stated that his match against NXT UK superstar WALTER was his favorite before arriving in AEW. He added that he delivers great performances against the big men, which depicts the story of David vs Goliath.
”Dude, I’m going to tell you, my favorite match before coming to AEW was against WALTER. That’s my biggest style is the David versus Goliath. I remember I went to Mexico and then I was telling the promoter, ‘hey man, this style of six-man, just ding-ding-ding, like a million spots, that’s not going to best showcase Darby Allin. I need to sell and I need to do some storytelling.’ I always felt matches against big guys like WALTER was the best thing. So, somebody along those lines, like a WALTER if someone outside of AEW it’d be like that definitely to showcase what makes me me.”, said Darby Allin. (H/T- Fightful)
