Darby Allin has benefitted greatly from his time under the tutelage of wrestling icon Sting. From their incredible cinematic match at AEW Revolution against Brian Cage and Ricky Starks to Darby’s recent feud with MJF, the presence of the Stinger has given Darby major legitimacy. Sting is 62-years-old, though, and won’t be around forever.
Darby talked to Bleacher Report about what the future might hold when the two inevitably split up. Darby says he’s fine with the pairing continuing for as long as the company will allow it. He considers Sting his mentor.
“He’s amazing as a mentor. He’s the most humble guy. We sit there all day and just talk.
As for being someone I look up to, I was too young when he was killing it at the top of his game, but the older I get, the more I’m able to appreciate him.”
Allin said he’d continue with Sting in his corner indefinitely. He values the wisdom of his veteran pal. He says Sting has zero ego.
“That’s not in the cards yet, ever. It’s different when there’s two young guys trying to prove to each other they’re better, but Sting has done everything twice. He has no ego. There is no reason he’d want to split up.”
Darby Allin will face Billy Gunn on tonight’s AEW Rampage. The match is said to be the start of a program between the two. To find out what happens, tune in to AEW Rampage tonight at 10PM on TNT.
