Darby spoke about Taz after that. He stated that he also enjoyed working with Taz and not just Sting. “A lot of it goes into them trusting me and seeing my vision,” said Allin.
“We’ve been putting in this work for about a year now with Team Taz and six months with Sting. It’s like, me and Tony Khan just sticking to the vision, them trusting my vision. I visualized a lot of this match tonight and to put it out there and them not second guess my directing, it meant a lot to me”.
Darby then spoke about how much creative control he had during the match. He revealed that he had about 90% control over the match. “I would say I was involved in 90% of it,” Allin stated. “I was doing damn near everything that night, a lot of work put into this.
I was up for weeks producing this. It was a good experience. I had dropped out of film school so this was a good test for my directing”. Darby is going to fight Scorpio Sky this week. He commented on the upcoming match. “I’m the TNT Champion and I want to remind everyone about that,” said Darby Allin.
“Even though the title wasn’t on the line tonight I want to remind everybody why I’m champion in the first place. And Scorpio Sky, that’s gonna be the first step. I see the messages and everyone says ‘Darby isn’t defending it.’ Well yeah; I was stuck with Team Taz and having to work with that.
There was a lot of work put into that. And now I want to remind everyone why I’m TNT Champion, and it all starts with Scorpio Sky”.
