Darby Allin Reveals When He Will Climb Mount Everest, More Details On Attempt

Darby Allin has provided more details on

Allin has been part of AEW since Fyter Fest 2019 and has become a pillar of All Elite Wrestling, holding the TNT title multiple times and being involved in top storylines throughout his run with the company.

Darby is also a big fan of extreme sports and doing insane stunts like jumping over his house in an SUV. So it will come as no surprise to many people that Allin is going to climb Mount Everest next year.

Allin has previously said he will plant a flag on the peak of Everest when he does make the climb.

Now, Allin has revealed some new details for the climb, including a timeframe for when he intends to make the climb.

“If I’m the guinea pig to do crazy stuff to get more eyes on the company, let me be that guy. That’s why I want to climb Mount Everest. I want to be the first wrestler to climb Mount Everest. I want to be the first wrestler to go to space. To do everything. To me, I feel a lot of people in wrestling are like, ‘What’s your character?’ ‘I’m not scared of anything. I’m a big bad man.’ In real life they’re like, ‘Don’t hurt me.’ I legit have no fear and am totally at peace if I die at Mount Everest. That’s why I’m like, ‘Let me do that. Let me make history.’ I feel there is only so much we can do in the confines of a wrestling show. I’m thinking outside the box. How do we get more random buzz for people who don’t watch wrestling? If you see it on the news, ‘pro wrestler climbs Mount Everest,'” he said in an interview with Steve Migs.

When asked if he’s training for his climb, Darby said, “I go to Switzerland in October, train there. I go to China in November. I go to New Zealand in February, and actual Mount Everest is April. I’ve never climbed any mountains before. I wanted to go zero to 100. I wanted to show that the mind, the will to do something, is strong enough to where you don’t have to train for anything. They’re [climbing company he’s working with] like, ‘come on.’ I agreed to get the proper training. The actual climb is in April and it’s two months to climb it.”

“I don’t know if I’m having a video crew, so to speak. The only reason I’m thinking of holding off and just doing my own vlogging is, I don’t want to feel like I have to entertain cameras. Whenever someone has a YouTube vlog, you can tell they are acting. I have to think about my life, I can’t think about cameras. I want to be the spokesperson for AEW, inside the ring and outside.”
