Darby Allin Recalls Moment He Thought He ‘Met His Doom’ During Match AEW

An AEW star has revealed that he thought he ‘met his doom’ during a ladder spot in an AEW Dynamite match-up.

Darby Allin was recently speaking to Renee Paquette on the October 20 episode of her podcast, The Sessions when he described the incident.

Allin recalled facing Jeff Hardy in an ‘Anything Goes’ match during the May 11, 2022 edition of AEW Dynamite. Both competitors are known for their high-flying styles and risk-taking tendencies, and the match did not disappoint from that point of view.

During the bout, Allin launched from the top of a ladder onto Hardy, who was standing outside of the ring. The two collided with ten steel chairs on the ground, leading to the obligatory “holy s**t” chant from the crowd.

Allin described the build-up to the match, saying:

“Earlier in the day, I climbed that ladder and I looked down and I was like ‘yeah, I’m for sure going to the hospital tonight.’ There’s no way around it.

“AEW-wise, that was the craziest thing. I thought for sure I was going to meet my doom.”

Despite his apprehension and Hardy ultimately securing the win, Allin describes the whole experience as an enjoyable one.

“Everybody asks me ‘dude how’d that feel?’ And honestly, it didn’t feel like anything, it was so safe. You can see me if you watch the video back, I kinda go to Jeff’s ear ‘that s**t was so fun!”

According to Allin, he originally pitched for more high-octane moments in the match, but these did not go ahead as the New York State’s Athletic Commission were in attendance.

Darby Allin was last seen in-ring during AEW Dynamite’s 3-year Anniversary edition on October 5 where he defeated Jay Lethal by pinfall.

Jeff Hardy is currently away from AEW following an arrest for DUI in June and is not expected to return until his legal issues are resolved.

According to a recent update, Hardy’s pre-trial hearing scheduled for October 19 was changed to November 17, 2022. You can read more about this story right here.
