Darby Allin On A Potential AEW Tag Team Title Run With Sting, Colby Corino On His NWA Exit


In a recent interview with Fightful, former TNT Champion Darby Allin discussed his alliance with Sting and explained why a tag team title run is unlikely to be in their future.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:


On how the partnership came together: “Yeah, it happened really organically. I don’t think anything was planned. When he made his debut, it was never planned for him to be teamed with Darby. It kinda just started happening naturally. He was a fan of what I do in the ring and outside the ring. He’s like, ‘You’re a very creative individual. One day, people will be working for you.’ I was like, ‘I don’t know, man.’ We just started shooting ideas back and forth, it kept growing and growing. Next thing I knew we were teaming, and never thing I knew he was returning to the ring live. It wasn’t a cinematic match. It was live at Double or Nothing a few years ago against Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky. It was something special. He saw that he could trust me in the ring with coming up with ideas and from there, man, I think we’ve been attached at the hip.”

On a potential tag title run: “Well, you know the thing with Sting, man, he don’t want to go for championships. That’s never been a goal of his. He never wanted to fight for the championship. I can respect that. He’s like, ‘Give somebody the opportunity to do it that it could elevate their career.’ He don’t need to get his career more elevated. Maybe he’ll change his mind. Maybe he’ll be like, ‘Yo, FTR. What’s up?’”

In other news, Colby Corino parted ways with the NWA following the expiration of his contract last year.

In an interview with Pwmania, Corino discussed his NWA departure as well as his experience in Billy Corgan’s promotion.

On his NWA run: “I loved my time in the NWA. I got to work with some of my best friends there. The locker room was a great environment. It felt like everyone was on the same page, for the most part. Probably like 99% of the people there were on the same page. You always get a bad apple once in a while. Everyone there just wanted to focus on putting on a good wrestling product. It seems like there was a lot of ego that got removed in other places where it is there. It was such a great time for me. I learned so much there, and I got to teach a lot of people there too, so it was a great dynamic.”

On why he left: “We had a great relationship. I didn’t re-sign because I was trying to go to WWE. I wanted to get the process started there. I was under contract, so legally I couldn’t do that while signed to NWA. Everything was all good though, no bridges were burned or anything on the way out. NWA is one of the few places building up people that weren’t established anywhere else. That’s something we need more.”
