Is Darby Allin Related to Sting? The Truth Behind Their AEW Partnership

Darby Allin and Sting are two of the most popular and intriguing stars in AEW. They have formed a formidable tag team since Sting’s debut in December 2020, and have been victorious in every match they have competed in. But what is the real nature of their relationship? Are they related by blood or just by face paint? Here is everything you need to know about Darby Allin and Sting’s partnership in AEW.

Darby Allin is not Sting’s son or relative

The first thing to clear up is that Darby Allin is not related to Sting. Although they share a common look, Allin’s face paint is not similar to Sting’s. Sting is more like a mentor to Allin now. However, Allin has revealed that they actually share a close bond and find time to chill around despite having hectic schedules.

According to EssentiallySports, Darby Allin said:

> “We’re just messing around and like, man, we have a real tight, real tight schedule. Like how we’re supposed to film today, we’re gonna do that, we’re gonna paint our faces in the car. And then he was just like, just his reaction, everything is hilarious. So he is down for whatever. And we’re like, I’m just trying to paint my face in the little window and he’s like ‘dude I’m not gonna paint my face in this car first, then I’ll paint my face in a mirror and I was like alright.’ He says ‘you like to like show up the airport with your face painted, I don’t like to do that stuff,’ just like he’s just funny guy.”

Darby Allin and Sting have a lot in common

Darby Allin and Sting may not be related by blood, but they have a lot in common in terms of their personalities, styles and backgrounds. Both of them are known for their dark and mysterious personas, their rebellious and fearless attitudes, and their affinity for skateboarding and punk rock.

Darby Allin has said that he grew up idolizing Sting and watching his matches in WCW. He has also said that he relates to Sting’s story of being an outsider and overcoming adversity. He told Metro:

> “He’s the guy I really hang out with backstage. His dressing room, he’s got his own little private dressing room and he says it’s mine. So, it’s just me and him chilling and talking about a bunch of stuff. He’s cool, we’ve got a lot more common than people think – goes beyond the face paint! He likes to be put to work, he wants to be part of the show. He doesn’t wanna just sit there and collect the cheque. He wants to have things to do, so it’s real cool to be a part of that.”

Sting has also praised Darby Allin for his talent and charisma, and has said that he sees a lot of himself in him. He told Sports Illustrated:

> “I see something very special in Darby. He has an intangible charisma about him that you can’t teach or coach or manufacture. It’s either there or it isn’t—and it’s definitely there with him.”
