Chris Jericho “Darby Allin Is a Legit Main Event Draw”

Last updated

Former WWE Superstar and AEW ‘Le Champion’ Chris Jericho recently spoke to WrestlingINC. The leader of The Inner Circle stable discussed a number of topics during the interview, including how AEW has used their platform on TNT to promote and highlight younger talent.

‘Our goal from the start was to make new stars” Jericho began. “Because that’s what wrestling’s all about. It always has been. If you look at last week’s show, where we had Jungle Boy vs. Darby Allin in the main event, we had Shida vs. Tay Conti in a main event.”

“Those are two kind of fence post matches on our show and they both did a great number” Jericho continued. “We’ve made Darby Allin into a legit main event draw. I mean last night he’s in the main event with Ten for God’s sake and it will probably do a good number.”

“I give us a full Barry Horowitz pat on the back for that because we set out to do it and we did it” Y2J noted. “It’s not hard to do; pick the right guy and just stick with them. We paired Darby with Sting, so he got that rub. And now Sting is almost, I’m not going to say lackey, but he’s almost Darby’s second at this point.”

“And that’s probably exactly what he should be” Jericho added, speaking of the WCW legend. “If you look at what we’ve done with Jericho, MJF, Sammy Guevara, Santana and Ortiz, Wardlow, that’s another aspect. We are building these guys and girls because it just can’t be Jericho vs. Cody, vs. Kenny over and over again. Nor would we want it to be.”
