The heart of the matter

The former WWE Intercontinental Champion recently spoke to Chris Van Vliet and, during the interview, Young revealed how Triple H inadvertently brought him to tears after a backstage incident:

“It’s unfortunate that someone didn’t have my back because when I was having my last feud with The Miz, I was told I couldn’t use the cross-face chicken wing because it was a dangerous hold. Legit. I said I know what I’m doing, I’m not going to kill anyone.
"Fast forward and I found out the move was being saved for Asuka. The Miz pointed that out to me in the locker room weeks later and I was like ‘I f*****g knew it!’ It broke my heart. I’ve got pictures of him on my wall in my childhood room. It broke my heart. I cried like a baby backstage and he (Triple H) came over and was like ‘Darren, why are you crying?'” H/T: WrestlingNewsCo

What's next?

As revealed in the interview with Chris Van Vliet, Darren Young says that he's now trying to get signed by either All Elite Wrestling or Ring of Honor. Young said that at 35, he still has a lot of wrestling left in the tank.
