Darby Allin showed off new ink on the latest episode of AEW Dynamite.
The opening bout of the June 7th episode of Dynamite saw Orange Cassidy defend his International Championship against the Mogul Embassy’s Swerve Strickland. Despite the efforts of Strickland’s colleagues trying to distract the champion, Cassidy was victorious in the end, rolling up Strickland with a handful of tights.
Immediately after the bell rang, the Mogul Embassy members launched into an attack on Orange Cassidy, but the lights went out in the arena. When the lights came back on, Sting and Darby Allin were in the ring, backing up Cassidy as the Mogul Embassy backed off. It was later announced that Allin and Sting will team with Cassidy and Keith Lee to take on Mogul Embassy on next week’s Dynamite.
His appearance was brief, but some fans noticed that Darby Allin was sporting some new ink on his head, showing an image of a tree that runs from his shoulder up the side of his head.
Allin posted a picture of the new tattoo on his Instagram stories and credited artist Caleb Morgan with the work. Morgan documented Allin’s completed tattoo on his own Instagram page, and that can be seen below.
Elsewhere on Dynamite, Tony Khan announced the main event for the debut of AEW Collision. CM Punk will team with FTR to take on the trio of Jay White, Juice Robinson, and ROH Television Champion Samoa Joe. AEW Collision is set to debut on June 17th and will emanate from the United Center in Chicago, IL. This will mark Punk’s first match since winning the AEW World Championship at last year’s All Out. Due to his involvement in the now-infamous brawl after the pay-per-view, Punk was stripped of the championship.
