Darby Allin Comments On What It’s Been Like Getting To Know Sting As A Person

Darby Allin continues to make the media rounds to promote his AEW All Out 2021 pay-per-view match against CM Punk this weekend.

In a new interview with TV Insider, the face-painted star in AEW spoke about getting to know Sting as a person, the best advice “The Icon” has given him and more.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.

On how is it to have that freedom and trust to create your story: “Having that freedom allows the fans to see firsthand who I am and what I’m capable of. I wasn’t given a crappy character. I wasn’t told what to do or say. That creative freedom means the world to someone like myself. I take full advantage of it.”

On whether or not there is anywhere he’s pulling inspiration from these days: “I would say lately it has been skateboard videos — watching someone battle a trick and see the anguish someone goes through to learn something insane. That and music videos.”

On the best advice Sting has given you: “Don’t listen to people and do things your way.”

On how it has been getting to know the man behind the paint: “Before he came to AEW, I would change in the boiler room because I like to be alone and away from everybody. I like to stay away from drama and gossip and all these meaningless conversations. When he came to AEW, he has this private locker room. He says, “Hey man, my locker room is your locker room now. Come stay in it whenever you want.” So it’s literally me and him changing in that locker room now. It’s pretty cool to have him open the door for me and let me in. We’ve really gotten the chance to know each other. We talk all day. Our friendship goes beyond onscreen, and it’s awesome.”
