Darby Allin Says He Was ‘Hyped’ To Drop The TNT Championship To Miro
Former TNT Champion Darby Allin has opened up abut losing the title, but says he was more than happy to drop it to his AEW colleague Miro.
In a recent interview with the Wrestling Perspective Podcast, Allin said he was proud of his run and had no problem with being booked to lose it when he did.
Miro Becomes An AEW Champion
“I was hyped to go out when I did because I was having those string of main events and we were drawing good numbers when I was main-eventing. I didn’t want to overstay my welcome. Like, ‘What the f***k, when’s this guy gonna lose?’ I didn’t want to be that guy. I don’t have no ego when it comes to this. I was like, ‘Dude, I’m ready to roll out when I’m on top with it,’ so it was good. I really liked it,” Allin said.
As you might recall, Miro won the TNT Championship after defeating Darby Allin in the main event of the May 12 edition of AEW Dynamite on TNT.
Darby Allin Won The TNT Championship At Full Gear
In the aforementioned Wrestling Perspective interview, Allin also spoke about the moment he found out he would be winning the TNT Championship from Cody Rhodes at Full Gear back in 2020.
“I didn’t even know leading into it if I was going to win,” Allin recalled. “Then someone was like, ‘Dude, you’re winning’ I was like, ‘Okay, cool.’ I don’t know if it’s just the combination of just hearing people lie so much in life that you don’t want to hear it until it’s there, but I found out that day and I was hyped about it.”
Darby Allin’s run as TNT Champion was certainly memorable. He defended the title on Dynamite regularly, including several thrilling main events. Allin lost the title to Miro after passing out in a submission hold — meaning he was not pinned and he did not submit. This leaves the door open for a rematch between Miro and Allin, but it remains to be seen if and when that match will take place as both men have moved on to new feuds.
