How is Darby Allin in the main event scene ?

Seriously donít see what people see in this guy. Heís a skinny nerd who has an atrocious attire. AEW needs to clean up some mistakes and stop booking guys who have no business being in the main event scene. Havoc has more of a threatening look to him and looks more like a main event talent than this guy. I know size isnít everything but this dude is cringe. His finishing move (coffin drop) looks like it wouldnít even hurt and when he rode his skateboard down the ramp last week to attack Jericho, that was just cringe. Iím really not sure what people see in this guy and I hate to be a debby downer but get this guy away from the main event scene.

He's not.

He had one match with Jericho, now he'll go back to the midcard.

LOL at them billing him at 180 lbs though. Fuck outta here.

He comes off very jobber-esque to me or at the very best a lower-end midcarder. I do agree he's pretty cringe, tbh. I know AEW is about giving guys a chance that wouldn't succeed elsewhere but he's pretty meh IMO.

Yawn. Havoc even as a mega mark for him would need a proper build. His best run as a heel was a despicable psycho heel. That takes time to build.

Also darby is over with the fans, a great promo, good in the ring. It gives jericho a defence over a good midcard on weekly tv. Also that skateboard thing was cool and unique.



Spoiler for Don't be sad it is over, be happy it happened:

He’s not ? Looks like he’s in the elite group.....I know AEW wants to give people a chance but if you wanna be taken seriously you can’t have scrubs like this in the main event. It was a joke how it looked like he would still beat Jericho with his hands taped Havoc needs to be established in the main event scene not this guy. Between this and goof ball Marco Stunt competing with the Lucha Bro’s. AEW still has a lot of work to do.

Re: How is Darby Allin in the main event scene ?

He's really not, he got a filler world title match b/c they needed a contender for TV without giving the other top guys a loss. Plus they need to build and entire roster and working with Jericho is a good way of getting other guys some shine.

Jericho, Cody, Omega, Moxley, PAC, Bucks, Lucha Bros, Hangman Page, Dustin, maybe Swagger are the big Main Event level guys right now.

Just b/c you are in one TV Show Main event doesn't make you a "Main Event Player"

Re: How is Darby Allin in the main event scene ?

In my head I was thinking it could be like an Undertaker-Jeff Hardy match, though I ended up thinking it was very anticlimactic. There's definitely a place for him as some kind of Jeff Hardy-Spike Dudley hybrid. His theme song + entrance with the skateboard is pretty great. He's one of only 3 wrestlers whose music makes me take notice.

Shouldn't be close to ME of course.

Eh....he wrestled Cody to a draw and helped the elite out.....my point is he has no business even wrestling for a world title, also it appeared like he could of beaten Jericho if it wasnít for Hager lol. AEW needs to really be careful with unbelievable stuff like this.

They were just giving him the spotlight to try to get more eyeballs on him and see how he does. I don't think he's a permanent fixture of the main event scene.

And we back to this "he's too small, give me big sweaty muscle man" day today.

I saw a recent picture of Allin, the fucker is jacked. I loved to see most of these jokers taking pot shots at him to put their pictures up and let's see them put him to shame. I bet half of them are skinny nerds lol.

Allin was given a great rub, that's how you build the talent and new stars. You give them matches with the top stars. Allin came out of that Jericho match looking greater then before.
