Darby Allin Reveals Plans For AEW Return

Darby Allin AEW

AEW’s Darby Allin is looking ahead to getting back in the ring.

Darby Allin hasn’t wrestled since being defeated by Jay White on the March 13th episode of AEW Dynamite. Within the opening minute of the bout, Allin suffered a broken foot but continued to compete for a further 13 minutes.

Not only did the injury put Allin’s wrestling career on hold, it also forced him to postpone a planned attempt on Mount Everest.

Despite being unable to wrestle, Darby Allin recently sustained further injuries after being hit by a bus. Thankfully, the star escaped with a broken nose and no serious damage.

During an appearance on The Daly Migs Show, Allin was asked whether he’d be at the May 15th episode of Dynamite in his home state of Washington.

“Unfortunately, my foot is not scheduled to heal until I’d say June. So if I did roll up, it would just be with a broken face and a broken foot waving to the crowd, which may not be the worst thing. I’ll see. I trained in Everett, Washington, so it would be like an ultimate homecoming of sorts. That’d be really cool. May 15, I gotta see….I think might be able to make it. As long as there’s no buses, I’m good,”

Darby Allin Reflects On Mount Everest Disappointment

While discussing his postponed plans to climb Everest, Allin revealed he needed three metal plates in his foot to fix the break sustained in his match with White.

“I was all excited. I was like, yeah, I’m gonna kick Mount Everest’s ass. This is gonna be awesome. Then two weeks before I was supposed to fly out, I broke my foot wrestling at the show. I broke my foot in the first minute of the match and I wrestled an extra 13 minutes on the broken foot. It was so hard, it was miserable. Then I got three metal plates put in my foot, so I’m recovering from that,”

Another big AEW return is on the horizon after Kenny Omega was confirmed for the May 1st episode of Dynamite.
