AEW Star Eddie Kingston is a man who has been persistent in his career and has always gone to the maximum. It was not easy, but with his hard work, he deserved respect. Kingston also described what his first match at AEW looked like.
He described what the offer of AEW and WWE looked like. “[WWE] never gave me any inkling that they wanted me, so I never really thought I was ever going to go there or even get a look at. I got the look at it more seriously after my match with Cody when I debuted.
And yeah, there was a consideration … My mom was a big factor [in my decision]. Me and her talked about it, I had a chance to pick and choose … My mom was just like, ‘Look, you ain’t going to be happy at WWE.’ That was her feeling, and she’s an outsider, so she doesn’t know any of the ins and outs, or the rumors, or any of the clickbait stuff”.
- he said, as quoted by Wrestling Inc.
Eddie Kingston: I started talking sh*t to Cody
Eddie Kingston had an interesting outburst during one match, so he had to re-tape everything from scratch. He was very angry about it. “I went out there, I started talking sh*t to Cody and to Arn, and I called him Cody Rhodes.
And at the time, they didn’t have the Rhodes name. So my first day on the job, Tony Khan runs out and goes, ‘Hey, we’ve got to re-do it.’… Now I’m turned up 1,000, you know what I mean? And I feel someone tap me and I turn over and I go, ‘What the fu*k do you want?!’.
And I go, ‘Oh hey, Tony.’ So that was probably the last time I had to be stopped or said [to], ‘Hey, don’t say that.' ”
