AEW star Darby Allin and NXT star Cora Jade have gotten into a Twitter war over their similar gimmicks. It all started when the former TNT champion made a post showing him skateboarding at a local park. This drew attention from the fans as they shared their take on the post. A fan suggested that Allin should have a skateboarding match with Jade, whose NXT character is also based around skateboarding. Darby Allin had previously explained why he does not watch WWE.
Cora Jade and Darby Allin engaged in a heated exchange
Responding to the fan, Darby Allin fired some shots at the NXT star. He wrote:
“Skating is a huge part of my life not a fake character for tv lol”
This led to Cora Jade firing back at the AEW signee, she wrote back:
“Being a good person with no abuse allegations against me is a huge part of my life and not just a character I play on TV.”

Both the stars have since deleted their tweets, but social media has been eating up this inter-promotional fight. Jade is referring to Allin being accused of sexual abuse by indie wrestler Hawlee Cromwell during the speaking out movement last year. Jade is a friend of Cromwell and the two have previously teamed in the indies. Allin’s ex-wife Gigi Dolin, who is one-half of the current NXT tag team champions, has also feuded with Jade.
Darby Allin is set to team up with Sting and CM Punk to take on the team of FTR(Cash Wheeler and Dax Harwood) and MJF in a Trios Match on the upcoming edition of AEW Dynamite. While Cora Jade took on Dakota Kai on this week’s edition of NXT 2.0. Jade emerged victorious in the match.
