AEW president Tony Khan has addressed the Darby Allin glass spot from AEW Revolution and the safety precautions put into it.

Darby took part in a rather scary looking bump at Revolution during Sting’s last match against the Young Bucks, where he leapt off a ladder to the outside through a pane of glass.
The spot saw a lot of criticism online, with many fans questioning the safety of the spot.
Speaking to TVInsider, Tony Khan spoke about the controversial spot, and the safety measures put into place to ensure it was done safely.

He said:
“It has to be something safe. Whenever a wrestler comes in and wants to try something, especially dangerous, I just want to know that there is a safe way to do it.
“Darby Allin, every time, he has ever had an idea for a wild highspot or a crazy move, he has had a rationale and plan. Darby doesn’t take these things lightly.

“Nobody would have attempted the amount of crazy, wild, death-defying stunts Darby has done in his tenure and made it this far unless they are a methodical, organized planner.
“In Darby’s case, he is fanatical about finding a way to pull off the impossible and do these incredible, seemingly death-defying stunts.
“He always finds a safe way to pull them off. He always has a rationale for why he is able to do it. That’s what impresses me, the way Darby plans his matches and his biggest moves.”

Darby is set to face off with Jay White at AEW Big Business tonight, his final match before leaving to climb Mount Everest at the end of the month.
