DDP: Cody Rhodes Is Darby Allin’s Macho Man Randy Savage

Former AEW TNT Champion Darby Allin was a made man in All Elite Wrestling after going the distance with Cody Rhodes.

All Elite Wrestling’s Darby Allin was a recent guest on DDP Snake Pit to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about working with Cody Rhodes multiple times before he made the jump to return to WWE, Allin had nothing but praise for the former EVP.

“Well, I don’t take any of that shit for granted,” Darby Allin said. I know people can say whatever about Cody now that he’s gone, but I have nothing negative to say. People’s lives and people’s decisions, and their paths are all different. And like, I love that dude.”

Diamond Dallas Page went on to make a comparison by calling Cody Rhodes Allin’s Macho Man Randy Savage because when Savage put DDP over in WCW, it legitimized his career and made him a bonafide star. Allin then reflected upon his rivalry with The American Nightmare in All Elite Wrestling.

“After that, I had three other matches with Cody,” Darby Allin said. “He beat me the second time, he beat me the third time, but the fourth time which was our final match that we’ve had, I beat him for the TNT Championship.”

Darby Allin went on to talk about his relationship with Sting and his wrestling philosophy regarding wins and losses.

“I personally don’t give a shit about wins and losses,” Darby Allin revealed. “Like I really don’t. Like that’s the thing, I hear some Sting because what a lot of people don’t know is people think like, how does Darby Allin and Sting get along? And I’m like, what they don’t see is like our camaraderie behind the scenes. But to touch base real quick is what Sting taught me more than anything is if you’re as good as you think you are, you can win in losing. The egos and stuff like that, I love putting other people over. If the person is somewhat new to the company, and they’re going to take that ball and run with it, and then it helps the whole place out. It’s just fun for me, you know? I love telling that story. And I don’t care; I don’t know, I just have no ego when it comes to this stuff.”
