AEW Star Darby Allin Says He Plans To Climb Mount Everest In 2024

Darby Allin might be concentrating on becoming the next AEW World Champion right now, but he has already got his eyes set on another huge challenge for 2024.

"The thing I'm going to be doing next year that no wrestler's done before is climb Mount Everest," he said to "TMZ." "You heard it here first."

It should come as no surprise that the former TNT Champion has his sights set on such a lofty goal. Allin is known for a daredevil style inside the ring that has seen him put his body on the line match after match. Those tendencies characterize his life outside the ring, as well, whether it's skateboarding, jumping over his house while driving a jeep, or, now, taking on the world's tallest peak. During a recent "Dynamite" appearance, AEW's commentary team pointed out that Allin had been struck by a vehicle just days before, but was still intent on getting in the ring and performing.

"That's been my whole MO since AEW started," Allin said. "That's why it's so important for me to meet up with guys like [Travis] Pastrana, and make stuff happen. Do stuff that no wrestler's ever done before." The AEW star is currently preparing for the biggest match of his career thus far — challenging for the AEW World Championship in the main event of the company's upcoming Double or Nothing pay-per-view. Allin, along with Sammy Guevara and "Jungle Boy" Jack Perry, will take part in a four-way match with the coveted title currently held by Maxwell Jacob Friedman on the line.
