Son Of WWE Hall Of Famer Training With Darby Allin

Darby Allin AEW

Darby Allin is training a high-profile wrestling rookie.

At Revolution back in March, Sting brought down the curtain on his legendary career with a stunning victory over the Young Bucks alongside Darby Allin. The victory which saw glass, ladders, chairs, and tables all come into play, meant Sting retired as one-half of the AEW Tag Team Champions.

At the event, Sting’s presentation was given as many bells and whistles as the company could muster, which included coming out to Metallic’s Seek & Destroy. The veteran was also accompanied to the ring by his sons Garrett and Steven who were dressed as “Surfer Sting” and “nWo Wolfpack Sting” respectively. The duo even got involved in the action, performing a couple of their father’s signature splashes in the corner before heading backstage.

Interestingly, it’s now been revealed that the appearance may have sparked something in Steven. In a new interview with Fightful, Darby Allin revealed Steven has been staying at his house and training to become a wrestler. Allin said his protege hadn’t shown an interest in wrestling previously, but Revolution gave him the urge to train.

Steven has been sleeping in a tent in Allin’s front yard, and working out in a ring he has at his house. Allin spoke with Sting and his son before eventually extending the invitation.

Allin’s full interview with Fightful will be released on May 23rd.

Darby Allin Closing On In-Ring Return

Meanwhile, Darby Allin is preparing to get back in the ring after a surprise appearance on AEW Dynamite.

After Eddie Kingston suffered a broken leg he was forced to pull out of Anarchy in the Arena at Double or Nothing. The star had been due to team with FTR and Bryan Danielson to take on The Elite.

On the May 15th episode of Dynamite, The Elite was putting a beatdown on FTR and Danielson when Allin appeared to even the score.

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