Darby Allin on being ranked PWI 500: “It doesn’t mean anything to me. I don’t care. I really don’t care about that”

Ahead of Saturday’s AEW All Out pay-per-view, Darby Allin was interviewed this week on the Battleground podcast.

Here are a few highlights from the interview:

Darby Allin was asked if he was a fan of wrestling growing up:  “Yes and no.  I was a fan when I was a lot younger but then I fell out of it because it got so boring and mundane to me.  I didn’t want to spend my time watching something that was painful to watch.  I got back into wrestling probably in the last 5 years once I started training.  There’s a lot growing up that I liked as a young child, like Mankind.”

They asked Allin if watching Mankind is where he got his wrestling style from:  “I think I get my stuff more from skateboarding.  Growing up and seeing all these skaters that would destroy themselves just for the passion.  It’s not about the money.  It’s not about fame.  I feel like that’s what I want to convey through my performance.  I would be doing this crazy sh*t with or without a big company.  I would be jumping off bridges in my free time anyway so I might as well bring my world into professional wrestling.”

Darby was asked what being ranked #55 in the PWI 500 meant to him:  “It doesn’t mean anything to me. I don’t care. I really don’t care about that. I care more about what the people that I look up to and respect think about me. To me, that’s just a bunch of random strangers.”
