When Did Darby Allin Debut In AEW?

Allin has been with All Elite Wrestling since 2019, nearly since the beginning of the company’s existence. His first match came in June of 2019 at Fyter Fest, where he and Cody Rhodes fought to a time limit draw, a move that came as a shock to many fans as Rhodes was by far more well-known at the time.

Speaking in a July interview, Allin explained why he knew he’d “made it” in AEW following his incredible bout with Rhodes.
