Eddie Kingston fought his way through the indies, and COVID-19 almost forced him to quit, but he kept going. He is now set for an I Quit match against Jon Moxley. Neither man will be likely to say “I Quit.”
While speaking to Busted Open Radio, Eddie Kingston discussed his journey to AEW Full Gear. He said that nothing is handed to anyone. He entered the pro wrestling business to become a champion, and that is where his eyes are set.
It took Eddie Kingston 18 years to arrive at this point, and he is not going to settle for mid-card status.
People say you deserve this and that, but no one deserves anything in life. Everything you do in life, you got to work for. Nothing is handed to you. I worked for this. I prepared for this. This is not surprising to me. This is not making me nervous going into the ring, because I’m prepared for this. We get into this business to be World Champion. To me, it runs 18 years and it doesn’t matter how long it takes. This is the point why we are in this. We’re in this to be champions and not to be the opening act. Not to be a mid-carder. We’re here to be World Champions.
Eddie Kingston and Jon Moxley are likely to tear each other apart at Full Gear. It’s hard to picture either of them saying “I Quit,” but that is the only way a match with such a stipulation can end.
