Dax Harwood addresses Darby Allin’s promo from AEW Dynamite about wrestlers complaining

As seen during the March 15th 2023 edition of AEW Dynamite, Darby Allin cut a promo about wrestlers complaining on Twitter and wanting out of their contracts. During his podcast, Dax Harwood addressed the promo and commented on if he thought Allin was referring to him…

“I would implore a lot of people to look and see where I actually complained. Did I complain or was I just speaking my truth? I never said anyone was against me or any company was burying me. I’ve never said that before. I’ve just spoken my truth. I don’t necessarily think, and I didn’t, the Darby thing, when I heard it, I didn’t think he was necessarily talking about me. I have a good idea of some of the people he is talking about. Darby and I are pretty close. I would say we’re good buds. I don’t think he was (talking about me). If he was, I would ask him, and maybe I will ask him when I see him. I would ask him to come talk to me and let’s clear the air and figure that out. I don’t necessarily think he was talking about me because I have respect for him, I think he has respect for me, and we’ve worked together quite a few times and we talk every week. I understand what he was saying and where he was coming from. The internet, Twitter people, they can find anything on Twitter. I’m asking them to go and find where I have actually complained. I’m just telling my truth. If I didn’t stand up for me and FTR, I don’t know if we would be in the position we are right now.”

“Somewhere along the way, standing up for what you believe in, speaking your truth became wrong. At one time, that was the measure of a character, if you stood up for yourself. At one point in the world, that was a measure of your character. Now, it’s a measure of how bad of a human being you are. We have gotten so complacent, so used to taking the shit and eating the shit. If you believe in yourself and believe in what you have and what you can accomplish, but also what you can give back to the world, especially a world that you love, and I love it with a passion, to the point where it has caused me a lot of grief and anxiety and stress, but I love it so much that I have to stand up for what I believe in. If I didn’t stand up for what I believe in, I would have gotten along to get along and I would have never done the things I wanted to do and then I couldn’t have looked at myself in the mirror at the end of the day.” (quotes courtesy of Jeremy Lambert)
