AEW will return to Seattle for their upcoming WrestleDream event this Sunday where Allin will have a shot at the TNT Title when he faces Christian Cage. You can find a highlight from Allin and listen to the full interview below.

On his memories of AEW’s Seattle debut this past January: “We’ve only been to Seattle with AEW once before and that was an amazing, amazing night. That was definitely a full-circle moment because I remember being broke as a joke, riding the metro bus and watching the Sonics play. It’s one of those moments where everything that you’ve done led you to that point. It was really emotional. I was like, ‘Man, there was a time I never even thought I’d be capable of doing any of this.'”
