• AEW Wrestler Tells Chris Jericho Why He Didn’t Join WWE

During a recent appearance on Talk Is Jericho podcast, AEW wrestler Darby Allin explained to WWF Legend & current AEW World Champion Chris Jericho why he didn’t join WWE.

Below is what Darby said:

“They wanted to do something where I go to the Performance Center, not for a tryout, but just get signed and go to the Performance Center for a year and maybe do…a year from now…some crazy sh*t…f*ck that.

The thing is, that’s the beauty about AEW, they’re just going and making people. If I was there, god, it’s crazy to think about and I have a lot of my friends that got the opportunity between AEW or WWE, they chose WWE.

I was like come on guys, you can’t, that goes back to being the fanboy. You know what I mean?

You want to be the 100th dude who never sees the light of day or you want to be on the forefront of what we have, you know?”

Darby Allin and Chris Jericho had a match for the AEW World Championship on an episode of AEW Dynamite. You can watch it below:
