• AEW Wrestler Says He Isn’t A Fanboy Of CM Punk
Darby Allin is CM Punk’s first ever AEW opponent and their match will happen at tonight’s All Out PPV.
While they’re both babyfaces, Sting’s tag team partner doesn’t actually seem to be a fan of Punk.
Here’s what Darby said during a recent Q&A:
“It’s a privilege to step in the ring with him, but it ain’t a privilege to lose. I’m not here to kiss anyone’s f**king a$$ or anything like that. I’m not a fanboy, I’m not like these young guys who are like, ‘Gee mister can I have an autograph?’ I’m not here to meet and greet my people, I’m here to fight them and I’m here to win.
To be honest, I don’t wanna be this generation’s CM Punk. I wanna be Darby Allin. I don’t really care and I draw a lot of inspiration from CM Punk and I know CM Punk said that when he was younger I would have been his favorite wrestler, but when I was 15 years old Punk was my favorite wrestler.
Burning bridges, he doesn’t care what people think. I don’t like a$$-kissers so someone like him I really looked up to, but it doesn’t mean I wanna be him.”
