Darby Allin On Wrestling For EVOLVE, His Style & More

During an interview with Uproxx, Darby Allin discussed his journey through the independent scene and more. Here are the highlights:

On Wrestling For EVOLVE:

But at the same it, it wasn’t building your career. Because, the thing is, I wrestled Adam Cole there and then I checked my Twitter expecting a lot of people to be talking about the match. Only two people were talking about that match on Twitter and at that time I saw the writing on the wall that being here isn’t going to help your name value at all. You’re not going to get more followers. You’re not going to get more buzz.

On Turning The WWE Down:

There’s a million guys there who are never going to see the light of day. It’s not worth it. So I was like, ‘I’m not even interested.’ I’m not the type of guy who wants to sit on the sidelines and say, ‘Gee, I’m just happy to be in WWE.’ I don’t give a f*ck. My whole thing is I want to get out of wrestling sooner than later and go into film full time and direct my films that I’ve always wanted to direct, but now I’ve got more eyes on me, so they’ll be like, ‘Oh shit, it’s Darby and he’s making films. Let’s check it out.’ Even if they don’t know what the f*ck it’s about, they’re still going to check it out, you know what I mean?

On His Future:

I’ll be here as long as I feel like I can be creative and be myself. The moment I stop feeling like myself I mentally check out. Like I said, I’m totally fine living in my car. I don’t give a f*ck. I’m not playing anybody’s games. We’ll see how everything works out, because I think us as the roster still doesn’t know how the hell everything’s going to work out yet.

On His Style:

It’s fine, you know what I mean? I’ve dealt with that shit my whole life, you know, even from being, like, younger. People were like change your hair, change the music you like, change your clothes. I don’t give a f*ck, dude. They’re not going to be around when I’m on my deathbed. For some reason, people were just like, ‘F*ck it, he’s here for a reason. And that’s the thing, is people are so small-minded in f*ckin’ wrestling. The fans. Everyone’s so small-minded. They forget that we’ve had a life outside of wrestling. God forbid, you know what I mean? I’ve been falling on concrete my whole life and I’m still standing perfectly fine, so with or without wrestling, I’d still do stunts, so just, you know, mind your own business and get the f*ck out of my face.
