Darby Allin recently made an appearance at DEFY Wrestling, where he offered Nick Wayne an AEW contract, which Wayne graciously accepted on the spot.
During an appearance on The Megacast, Tony Khan credited Darby with the signing.
"Darby and I are very close, we're like twin sides of the same coin [laughs]. There is probably nobody I have less in common with, that I have a better connection with, than Darby. He is absolutely the person that brought Nick to my attention. He's trained with Nick since he was a young kid. I told, 'When he's 18, I would love to have him.' I really took Darby's word for it. That's my guy, Nick Wayne, when he's 18 years old, I can't wait for him to step in the ring for us. I give Darby all the credit for spotting him. They trained together for a long time and Darby is a fixture. In Seattle, we have probably the two most popular wrestlers out of the Washington area specifically in Darby Allin and Bryan Danielson. They both are very adepted scouting wrestlers."
