Darby Allin Recalls The Scariest Coffin Drop He Has Ever Done

AEW star Darby Allin has revealed the origins of the Coffin Drop, recalling the scariest version of the move he’s ever performed.

Speaking on Insight with Chris Van Vliet, Allin explained that the maneuver was born after he got bored of ‘pretty’ top rope moves, stating:

“I think I was bored of watching people do 450s or Shooting Stars. I was like, I don’t want to fly to look pretty, I want to fly to hurt, so I just started falling backwards. There is zero room for error, people do the 630s with the double front flips, I would hate to do that. I would hate to think every night I can’t slip, if you f**k up a Coffin Drop, you’ve got issues, it’s pretty easy, you just fall back on someone. A lot of it is adrenaline, I’m not going to do a Coffin Drop cold turkey. I think lots of skateboarding got me ready.”

When asked which was scariest, Allin pointed to the Coffin-Drop-through-a-coffin he executed on Ethan Page on the July 14 edition of Dynamite.

Noting that there was a slim margin of error for the move, Allin said:

“I would say the one to Ethan Page when I had him in the coffin. There was little room for error, and the moment I broke through the coffin, you see the spikes sticking up, I could have easily impaled myself. I could have hit my head on the rim of the coffin too, but there was zero room for error.

“People were like did you practice that? I don’t know how you practise that, you just gotta (do it). I didn’t know what was going to happen to Ethan, I crashed through the coffin and all I hear is him screaming. I’m like well I guess I f**ked him up. The cameras are not on him while he is in there screaming.”

The former TNT Champion notably faced CM Punk in Punk’s AEW debut at All Out. Allin has revealed how he found out he was set to be the former WWE Champion’s first AEW opponent.
