To a lot of All Elite Wrestling (AEW) fans, Darby Allin is one of the biggest stars of the company, however, former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) writer Freddie Prinze Jr. disagrees, saying there’s a disconnect there between the AEW wrestler and himself.
Recently making an appearance on the November 2, 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite, Darby Allin squared off against Jay Lethal in the ring, but would ultimately lose the match due to Cole Karter interfering in the match, who entered the match impersonating Sting. Shortly after, Allin was knocked out by a Jeff Jarrett guitar shot.
After the bout between Allin and Lethal, Prinze took to his “Wrestling with Freddie” podcast to talk about the 29-year-old.
“I have never talked about this wrestler on the podcast, which is Darby Allin. He’s got like a cool look. The promos, to me, don’t match the look and don’t match the wrestling style. So, that’s always been a disconnect for me.”
Prinze then spoke about Lethal, expressing his opinion on how All Elite Wrestling is using him.
“I don’t know what they’re doing with this guy ’cause he’s money on the microphone, so they gave him a manager. Doesn’t make sense to me. He’s money in the ring, so he never wrestles in like a legit match, although this was legit ’cause Darby is one of the guys they’ve been building on.”
