WWE Hall Of Famer Believes Popular AEW Star Needs ‘More Layers’ AEW

Former AEW TNT Champion Darby Allin has become one of the company’s most popular stars during it’s four year existence.

Darby has captured the hearts of the AEW fans due in part to his insane in-ring style as well as his unique look.

Another wrestler who was well known for taking risks during his matches is WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, who spoke about Darby on his Foley is Pod podcast.

Foley said that Darby is a phenomenal athlete, but he needs to add more layers to his character.

He said:

“He’s a phenomenal athlete and he comes from the world of extreme sports. He’s like a cat and then he lands on his feet. He’s got incredible body control. But I think every performer has to find a different gear that they can go into as much wild stuff as I did. I was able to temper it with the promos and by shifting gears and injecting humor.

“I think almost every guy with a long history, not talking about the guys who could go from territory to territory and basically recreate that same push each time, talking about the guys who had the long runs in WWE, WCW found another gear and that it often involved humor.

“And so Darby, I haven’t seen him in a couple of years or talked to him, but he’s a soft spoken young man and he probably should find a way to add layers to that character that doesn’t necessitate taking those risks all the time.”

Darby recently lost the AEW TNT Championship to Samoa Joe on the February 1 episode of AEW Dynamite, ending his second reign with the title.
