Darby Allin and ‘The Icon’ Sting teamed together for a cinematic match back at AEW’s Revolution PPV. It was an intriguing bout against Team Taz’s Ricky Stark and Brian Cage.
Allin recently discussed the filming and conception of the match, and how he was concerned he may injure Sting during the shoot.
“I was writing storyboards for months before the PPV” Darby Allin revealed on Drinks with Johnny. “When I saw the location where we were filming, I took all these photos and was plotting everything in my brain.”
“[I was] sitting in the boiler room, just coming up with all the shots” Allin continued. “We had an awesome crew and Steve Yu, who helped direct it. When we’re shooting it, I was running around and doing everything possible. ‘I wanna shoot it like this.'”

“When we got done with the cut, I’d run through a pane of glass, and go, ‘alright, get the next shot.’ I was doing everything and I felt on autopilot” Allin revealed. “I had an adrenaline rush and felt we could go all night and was on fire with it.”
“The only thing that stopped me was when I had to throw the bat to Sting” Darby Allin noted. “I was like, ‘Alright, I’m going to throw this down.’ Tony [Khan] put it best, ‘You know how the laws of physics work, right? That bat is going to come down and we don’t know if it’s going to break Sting’s face.'”
Darby Allin finished by saying just how badass Sting was at the film shoot. “First time in the whole shoot I started thinking like, ‘what if I do break Sting’s face and he can’t finish the match?’ He’s the one who was like, ‘I’m catching that bat.’ Perfect catch, first try, beat the f*ck out of everyone. I was on cloud nine.”
