Tony Schiavone Talks About CM Punk Helping To Elevate Darby Allin In AEW

How did CM Punk elevate Darby Allin in AEW?

Tony Schiavone sounded off on this subject during the latest installment of the official podcast of All Elite Wrestling.

Featured below is an excerpt from the AEW Unrestricted episode where the longtime pro wrestling commentator touches on this topic.

“I know there’s a lot of a lot of trolls on here, as they are on social media,” Schiavone stated. “They’re gonna say, ‘CM Punk put Darby over? No he didn’t. CM Punk beat Darby.’ It’s not about wins and losses you freaking dumb asses. It’s about making stars, and CM Punk made Darby an even bigger star, elevated Darby’s career that night. What she’s talking about, and I wholeheartedly agree that, these veterans and known stars coming in working with our younger talent is making everybody better. It’s not wins or losses anymore.”

“We saw Sting doing the same thing,” Edwards noted. “He came in, immediately started associating himself with Darby, and the running joke is that he’s Darby’s dad. That’s intentional, right? That’s building Darby as as a legitimate future contender.”
