Darby Allin is currently one of the top stars in AEW, who has made a name for himself as a thrill seeker and extreme daredevil. That is not a gimmick as he is exactly like that in real life, but it has a ton of risks as he could get injured easily. In fact, Allin admitted that he almost broke his neck during AEW Dynamite Homecoming.

At AEW Dynamite Homecoming on January 10, Darby Allin joined forces with Sting in a tornado tag team match against Powerhouse Hobbs & Konosuke Takeshita of the Don Callis Family.

In the course of the match, Hobbs & Takeshita swung Allin, sending him spinning across the ring. Unfortunately, during the landing, Allin’s head hit the bottom rope.

While speaking on KSDK to promote AEW in St. Louis, Darby Allin addressed the incident and emphasized that AEW delivers the unexpected every week, revealing that he almost broke his neck due to the horrific spot.

“The thing with AEW is, you can expect the unexpected. I mean that, I’m not just trying to sell anything. Every week, there is crazy shenanigans going on. Last week, I almost broke my neck. This week, we have so much crazy stuff. Literally, it’s something different every week. We don’t play it safe. I was in town, I saw this arch, and I kind of want to jump off of it.”

Darby Allin squared off against Jeff Hardy during the AEW Rampage tapings this week, so it is clear he didn’t actually suffer any serious injury. Nonetheless, it is unlikely he will stop being so reckless inside the squared circle anytime soon.
