Darby Allin Reveals Why He Turned Down WWE Contract


Darby Allin has spoken.

Darby Allin has transformed into a fan favorite wrestler under the AEW banner. 

That might not have happened if he signed the contract offered by WWE. He discussed his decision to not sign with the company while doing a recent interview with Uproxx.

Allin started out by stating that there are a million guys there who are never going to see the light of day and that it’s not worth it.

“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.”

Allin continued by stating that he always wanted to direct and now that he has more of a following, he thinks fans will check out his films even if they don’t know what it’s about. 

Instead of signing with WWE, Allin took his talents to AEW (All Elite Wrestling). 

Allin has the biggest match thus far in his pro wrestling career booked as he’ll be challenging Chris Jericho for the AEW World Title on Wednesday’s episode of AEW Dynamite on TNT in Philadelphia, PA at the Liacouras Center.
