Eddie Kingston, a prominent figure in All Elite Wrestling (AEW), faces a long road to recovery following a severe injury sustained at the New Japan Pro-Wrestling Resurgence event earlier this month. After a brutal post-match assault by The Elite, Kingston was initially diagnosed with a fractured tibia.

However, further examinations have revealed additional significant injuries, including tears in his ACL and meniscus, according to a detailed report from PWInsider. The extent of these injuries means Kingston will undergo knee surgery, derailing his previous plans to return by the All In event in London this August.

Instead, "The Mad King" is now expected to be sidelined until early 2025, marking a challenging nine-month recovery period. Speaking to PWInsider, Kingston shared his resilience, stating, "This is part of the game. Injuries happen.

I will be back."

Kingston's Match Impact

Before this setback, Kingston was scheduled to team up with Bryan Danielson and FTR in the Anarchy In the Arena match against The Elite at the upcoming Double or Nothing event. His absence from the ring was keenly felt last week on "AEW Dynamite," where Darby Allin stepped in to fill his spot.

As Kingston faces a lengthy recovery, he will be forced to watch future matches from the sidelines, including the highly anticipated showdown he was originally slated to participate in.

Kingston's injury not only impacts his personal career but also sends ripples through AEW's storyline plans.

His absence reshapes the dynamics of ongoing feuds and the creative direction of major upcoming events. Fans of Kingston and AEW alike will be watching closely, hopeful for a strong and swift recovery for one of wrestling's most passionate and gritty performers.

As the wrestling community rallies around Kingston during his rehabilitation, the support from fans and fellow wrestlers is expected to be a crucial part of his journey back to the ring. While the road to recovery may be long, Kingston's determination and resilience are likely to see him return with the same fierce spirit that has defined his career.
