Chris Jericho compares Darby Allin to WWE star

AEW has successfully introduced a number of new stars to wrestling audiences since their inception and Darby Allin is probably one of the biggest success stories for the company.



During his recent appearance on Keepin’ It 100 podcast, the AEW World Champion Chris Jericho talked about the young star and compared him to a former World Champion.

The Le Champion of AEW first mentioned how Allin has become a megastar in the last couple of months and he went on to compare him with Jeff Hardy:

“Darby Allin, you see him come out and people are dressing like him now, kids and women are putting the face paint on. At first, you’re like, ‘who is this guy?’ Then I had him come down and attack me off the skateboard. Then we had the match where he had his hands tied behind his back and all that stuff. He did the crazy promo where he’s in a bodybag, getting crowd surfed at a punk rock show. Then he has an amazing match with Moxley. He’s made. He went from nothing to a legit made star in less than two months. He wants it. He reminds me a lot of Jeff Hardy. He’s got an x-factor to him.”
