As the premiere of “AEW Collision” approaches on June 17, enthusiasm among fans and wrestlers, notably Darby Allin, grows. During an interview with PWInsider Elite, Allin discussed the opportunities he believes the upcoming Saturday show will provide for members of the AEW roster.
“[It’s a tricky] spot when you [have] two-hour television and then one hour on Friday, but with a whole other two hours, you can really sink your teeth into the whole set of guys and see what they can do, and to me, that’s amazing,” Allin said. “Like, I would love that. More eyes and more opportunities and more time? No problem.”Darby Allin Via PWInsider
While there is still confusion about CM Punk’s predicament heading into the show, Allin is not leaning toward appearing on “Collision” or “Dynamite” amid rumors of a roster split.
“If I could work both shows, I would work both shows,” Allin said. “We just started with the house shows and I just started doing those, and I’ve been on every one that we’ve had so far. It’s one of those things on those house shows where I forgot how much I loved wrestling.”Darby Allin Via PWInsider
Other from being regularly appearing on AEW programming since 2019, Allin is a two-time former TNT Champion, with his first reign took place between 2020 and 2021 and his second at the start of this year. He will face “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, Sammy Guevara, and titleholder MJF in his third attempt at the AEW World Championship at Double or Nothing on Sunday.
