Back in February, Darby Allin got the chance to team up with Sting at the AEW Revolution pay-per-view event. They worked a street fight against Ricky Starks and Brian Cage, which marked Sting’s first match since 2015 due to spinal stenosis.
Allin recently appeared on ESPN’s SportsNation show to talk about a wide range of topics.
During it, Allin was talking about being influenced by directors with his video packages including the footage that was filmed for this match as Sting was seen driving a truck with Allin holding onto the tailgate while on a skateboard to make it to the empty building for the fight. It turns out that they were pulled over by the police three times while filming.
“Like my entrance, I was filming for the pay-per-view last month with Sting, we were filming that entrance and got pulled over three times by the cops.”
He was asked what the reactions were like from the cops. Allin pointed out “they just saw me skating down the street at 3 in the morning and my face paint, speeding in a truck. They were like, ‘what’s going on here,’ I’m like, ‘it’s for professional wrestling, AEW.’”
