Darby Allin has become one of the stars to watch in All Elite Wrestling, and it’s clear that his performances since joining the company have helped him win the fans over.
Allin has become one of AEW’s most talked about stars, and on a recent episode of AEW Unrestricted he revealed why he turned down an offer to work out at the WWE Performance Center.
“Back then, they asked me if I was interested in coming down and at the time, I was like, not trying to sound I’m too good for it, but I was already like, ‘Yo, you either want me or you don’t, I’m not going to tryout for this, because you already know what I can do based on the company I was wrestling for [EVOLVE], they worked so close with the WWE, and I was already wrestling all their wrestlers, like Chris Hero, or Velveteen Dream, or all these people, so I’m like, you already know what I can do, I’m not just going to sit here.”
Darby Allin went on to say that after he realized how many people were getting signed by WWE at the time he didn’t even want to go there anymore, and that’s when he started talking to Cody Rhodes more.
“That’s when I started talking to Cody more and more, and I told him, like, look, I see the writing on the wall, I ain’t going to play this game where I go there and be a cruiserweight, 205 Live person, I ain’t playing that game, because then my body of work, my art, my promos, will never see the light of day, and that’s where I was like, I’m not playing these games with these people.”
