Eddie Kingston is a popular AEW Superstar and he spoke about his debut T-shirt. Eddie Kingston made his AEW debut in July 2020. He was wearing the Taxi Driver t-shirt which was a reference to the movie Taxi Driver. He spoke about it on SwerveCity Podcast.
“The reason why I wore that shirt (referencing his shirt with the movie Taxi Driver on it) and the reason why Taxi Driver, I was putting, like when I know I was doing it, I was putting up a post about Taxi Driver.
Because in the movie, the guy who plays, you know, De Niro, he’s tired of fake society. He’s tired of dirty New York. He’s tired of this, so I was like, ‘Okay, I’m tired of wrestling, I’m tired of the people in wrestling, I’m tired of the fake people who are fighting Cody”.

Eddie then spoke about why his promo against Cody Rhodes had to be re-done. “Funny story about this promo (referencing the promo he cut on Cody before their TNT Title match), this is the second one, that was the second one.
That was the second take. First take, I called him Cody Rhodes”. At that time, AEW could not use ‘Cody Rhodes’. The reason why they re-did the promo is because AEW did not want any trouble and just needed Eddie to re-do the promo without saying “Rhodes”.
“I just grabbed a mic, you know me being me. And I just called out Zack Sabre Jr, because I was supposed to wrestle him in the UK before the pandemic started. I also wanted to beat him up. I like him, but I think he’s a pr-ck.
So I want to beat him up,” Kingston said. “I called out Nick Aldis, because at the time, I was working for NWA and he was NWA World Champ at the time, and then I just called out Cody for sh-ts and giggles because he had that open challenge”.
Eddie Kingston fought Cody for the TNT title about he called Cody out. Eddie revealed that he liked wrestling Cody for the title and he put up a good show. “They can say whatever they want about Cody, but that man danced with me that night.
Cody could’ve been one of these old school vets that sat there and said, ‘Oh this kid likes to talk sh-t, I’m on national TV, you get nothing.’ And I’ve seen guys do that to people. So he could’ve been like, ‘Yo, we’re gonna go two minutes and thirty seconds, half that’s your promo, and then you’re coming in and I’m rolling you up, one, two, three”.
