Kingston says he doesn’t really do any cardio nowadays. Oddly enough, he jumped on an elliptical for 45 minutes a couple of weeks ago, which was the first real cardio he’d done in roughly 8 years. Shortly after that he received a call from Road Dogg, who told him he’d be replacing Mustafa Ali in the Gauntlet Match and would probably need to wrestle over an hour. Kingston said that wouldn’t be a problem, but after hanging up the phone he realized it was going to be tough.
The match ended up going great and that led into Elimination Chamber on Sunday. They were able to have another great match in the Chamber, and now Kingston’s just focused on riding this wave of momentum. Christian notes that Kingston’s always been great, and these last few weeks have reminded a lot of fans of that.
He notes that Mustafa Ali has done a great job since being thrust into the main event limelight, and it was really hard to see him get hurt. He said he felt a lot of pressure to not let Ali down after taking his spot.
Kingston says he started to feel the fans get behind him during the Gauntlet match when he squared off with A.J. Styles. At one point Styles told him to stay down and Kingston responded angrily with real emotion. It was at that moment that he could feel the fans really get behind him.
