You may not have heard of Darius Martin much over 2021, but you soon could see more of the up-and-coming AEW star.
Martin underwent ACL surgery in April 2021 with his last match took place in February 2021 during a Dark taping.
Tony Khan had high praise for Martin, revealing that he’s a name to watch out for in AEW. Here is what he told Shakiel Mahjouri of CBS Sports.
“I think for a variety of reasons, there’s a number of people I’m excited to feature in the coming year. For example, it was completely out of everyone’s control, but Darius Martin has been out injured and I think he’s tremendous. I would love to get him back soon and teaming with his brother, Dante. Dante has become a big star and I think they were tremendous as a tag team.
“When the injury happened, Darius was 21 and Dante was 19. Now Dante is 20 and has been featured so much on Dynamite and Rampage and has now been a main eventer on Dynamite. When Darius comes back, I think he’s somebody that could come in and be great for us. So I’m really excited about him in particular. That’s an important name to keep an eye on.”
