Darby Allin is one of the most unique talents on the AEW roster. During Wednesday’s Fyter Fest event, Allin defeated Ethan Page in a coffin match, before Coffin Dropping Page through the box.
On a recent episode of the Grilling JR podcast, Ross noted that Chris Jericho has a say in all of his creative plans. Praising Darby Allin’s mind, Ross said:
“Chris Jericho has a hand in everything he does and thank god for it. I’ll tell you another guy that we have, Darby Allin has a great mind. I’m very privileged to have the opportunities to have private conversations with Darby. We have a very good relationship and he runs ideas by me all the time.
“Some of them I agree with, and some of them I don’t. The good thing he knows is he’s going to get an honest opinion from me. He’s a good kid and he’s learning early, the more input you can have in your creativity, you increase your odds for success.”
