Darby Allin wins match after being run over by a car in New York City

Darby Allin is trying to prove that he deserves a title shot against AEW World Champion MJF. Is there a better way to do that than by winning a match after being run over by a car?

When Darby made his entrance for tonight’s (Apr. 7) match on Rampage against Lee Moriarty, Jim Ross informed us that Darby was indeed run over by a car 24 hours earlier while skateboarding in New York City:

Lee Moriarty is a jabroni, so he still lost despite the damage done to Darby’s body in the car accident. But Darby didn’t escape Rampage unscathed.

Swerve Strickland interrupted Darby’s post-match walk down the ramp. While Allin was distracted by Swerve, Brian Cage ambushed Darby and threw him to the ground with a power move that may very well be tantamount to another car crash.

Earlier in the show, Swerve said that Mogul Affiliates had agreed to a merger. This angle made it official; Mogul Affiliates has joined forces with The Embassy. Darby now goes one-on-one with Swerve next week on Dynamite.

Is this merger a good move for Swerve’s AEW career? Is Darby a mad man for wrestling 24 hours after being hit by a car? Let us know in the comments below, Cagesiders.
