WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley suggests that Darby Allin should find a way to add layers to his character that doesn’t involve taking risks all the time. Allin’s willingness to sacrifice his body have often been compared to The Hardcore Legend.
Foley praised Allin’s athleticism and body control, but did have a word of advice for the two-time TNT Champion. He noted that every performer needs to find a different gear to sustain their longevity in the wrestling business. He said,
“He’s a phenomenal athlete and he comes from the world of extreme sports. So he’s like a cat and then he lands on his feet. He’s got incredible body control. But I think every performer has to find a different gear that they can go into as much wild stuff as I did. I was able to temper it with the promos and by shifting gears and injecting humor.
“I think almost every guy with a long history, not talking about the guys who could go from territory to territory and basically recreate that same push each time, talking about the guys who had the long runs in WWE, WCW found another gear and that it often involved humor. And so Darby, I haven’t seen him in a couple of years or talked to him, but he’s a soft spoken young man and he probably should find a way to add layers to that character that doesn’t necessitate taking those risks all the time.”
