Darby Allin has gained a large fan following thanks to his unique look and gimmick. Allin has worked hard to become one of the Four Pillars in the company. However, many fans are clearly concerned about Darby Allin’s well-being due to his reckless style of pro wrestling.
Allin has competed in several top class matches, including those that have put his body through a lot of punishment. These include the coffin matches, as well as his ‘Anything Goes Match’ against Jeff Hardy on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
Allin took a huge bump from the top of a ladder onto several chairs, as fans were clearly concerned for his health after that. While speaking on The Hall of Fame podcast, Booker T expressed concern over Darby Allin’s health. Booker T believes that Allin will become a cripple by the time he is 40.
“It will be a whole lot more stuff happening in this wrestling business, just have to see something like that, you know, more power to those guys for going out there and doing that and having a courage to actually do it, but Darby Allin really will become a cripple by the time he turns 40-years-old. Bottomline, he would not be able to walk. He would have so much surgery done on his body by time he turns 40, it’s not gonna be funny and God bless him for putting his body on the line for the business.”
Darby Allin was also blasted for bringing down Sting with his lackluster promos. Allin might not care about his longevity in the pro wrestling world, seeing how reckless he still is. Regardless, we’ll have to see what’s next in store for Allin in AEW.
