Darby Allin is known to be a daredevil…sometimes to a fault.
Former AEW TNT Champion Darby Allin recently appeared in ‘Insight with Chris Van Vliet’ and described the worst injury he ever suffered, admitting that he thought he had ‘broken everything’ during the incident.
“It’s kind of a crazy story. I was going down this big hill, and I hit a crack at the bottom, my elbow went into my ribs, I thought I broke my ribs. Then my kneecap smashed into the wall, I was laying there and I thought I had broke everything. I was laying on the ground and then I see I am laying in a red ant hill. It just got worse and worse, I thought I broke my wrist, and I had to wrestle next week, it was f*cked up. I was contemplating going to the hospital for 3 hours. I was like if I cough up blood then I will go, but I didn’t, so I didn’t go.”
On the wrestling side of things, Allin said that the scariest Coffin Drop he ever did was the one he performed during his Coffin Match against Ethan Page.
“I would say the one to Ethan Page when I had him in the coffin. There was little room for error, and the moment I broke through the coffin, you see the spikes sticking up, I could have easily impaled myself. I could have hit my head on the rim of the coffin too, but there was zero room for error. People were like did you practice that? I don’t know how you practice that, you just gotta [do it]. I didn’t know what was going to happen to Ethan, I crashed through the coffin and all I hear is him screaming. I’m like ‘well I guess I f*cked him up.’ The cameras are not on him while he is in there screaming.”
Darby Allin is set to face MJF at AEW Full Gear this Saturday night.
