Darby Allin says he’s got a great bond with Sting that is stronger than people might expect.
Darby Allin recently spoke with TVInsider and talked about getting to know Sting as their partnership flourishes in All Elite Wrestling. Allin said he was a bit of a loner before Sting arrived, but the wrestling legend took Darby under his wing and it’s grown to something beyond what you see on television.
“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,” Darby said. “Our friendship goes beyond onscreen, and it’s awesome.”
Asked to share what some of their discussions are like, Darby said the best advice Sting has given him is “don’t listen to people and do things your way.”
Darby Allin takes on CM Punk at AEW All Out on Sunday, and Sting said he will not be at ringside for the match.
