Sting and Darby Allin get into a massive match later tonight at AEW Double or Nothing. The duo have partnered since Sting’s AEW debut and teamed up at Revolution PPV earlier this year, where they defeated Brian Cage and Ricky Starks in a cinematic street fight.

Before the pay-per-view later tonight, Sting spoke with Insert magazine regarding today’s game. In this match, The Icon competes in the ring for the first time in nearly six years.

During the interview, Sting said that it was Tony Khan’s idea to pair him with Darby Allin.

“Just to put it bluntly, it was something that was put in front of me. It was Tony Khan. I’m grateful for that. To be honest, I don’t know who’s looking after whom. [Laughs] Of course, I have a few things that I can bring with me after 35 years in the wrestling industry. But one thing that I’ve found after five or six years out of it, when it comes to physical wrestling and wrestling, is that it’s evolving, it is changing. And man, a lot has changed, “said Sting.

Sting also spoke about how his connection with Darby Allin began and his relationship with the former TNT champion.

“And Darby, he kind of updates me to be honest,” added Sting. “He really is. He’s definitely a daredevil – very talented in the ring and extremely talented outside the ring. He has a sense of the entertainment industry in general, from his own reality shows he gets ready to do and the innovation he brings to the ring, the creativity he has, not just for himself but for other.”

Sting on similarities with Darby Allin

Sting went on to talk about similarities between himself and Allin. He highly commended the former TNT champ for being in tune with the wrestling industry.

“You know, I was him all those years ago. I feel like I came to me during those” Crow “sting years, you’re just, after all these years, you’re kind of … out, but you really have your finger on the pulse of the wrestling industry and the fans and what they think and how to manipulate and how to just be victorious at storytelling we say. And Darby, he’s that guy. He’s ‘that guy now’ said Sting.
