Kingston said that Cody Rhodes was the better fighter on Dynamite this week. He started his career in 2001, and since then Eddie Kingston has been through a lot of battles. He’s going to keep fighting no matter if he comes back to AEW.

“I learned a long time ago, in this life, you never lose… you learn. And, I learned tonight that Cody Rhodes is the better man, he’s the better grappler, he was the better fighter — but just tonight. I’ve been doing this for a very long time … I’m not gonna say the year, the number and all that jazz because that’s just pitiful in my opinion. My humble opinion.”


“I have nothing else in this life that I love doing. So whether AEW brings me back or not, I’m going to keep going. I’m going to keep going until the wheels fall off because I have nothing but this. I chose to have nothing else but this. Cody, you were the better man tonight. I got no excuses, you were. But, I’m not stopping. I’m gonna learn and move forward. That’s all I can do. Man, that’s it I’m gonna walk away, man. I’ll be back. I’ll be back.”

Eddie Kingston left a lasting impression on AEW Dynamite this week. Pulling out thumbtacks was definitely a way to gain attention. Kingston could find a place in All Elite Wrestling, he is regarded by some as one of the best talkers in the business.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
