Eddie Kingston made his AEW debut back in July of last year, where he faced off against Cody Rhodes for the TNT Championship. While he was unsuccessful in the match, Kingston impressed many and signed with the company. It seems Kingston made an interesting claim about his match against CM Punk.
Kingston quickly cemented himself as one of the best talkers in AEW as his promos are known to be from the heart and very natural. He is also very passionate when it comes to the pro wrestling world.
Last month, AEW built up the feud between Eddie Kingston and CM Punk. The feud further intensified after the scathing back and forth between CM Punk and Eddie Kingston on an episode of Rampage. It culminated in a bloody war between the two at AEW Full Gear, which saw CM Punk pick up the win in the end.
While speaking with News 12, Eddie Kingston revealed that he and Punk said a lot of truthful things during their promo battle. Kington then claimed that the two ‘actually fought’ during the match.
“That wasn’t a promo. That was something we’ve both wanted to say to each other for fifteen years. That was fifteen years of buildup for both of us. So then you think ‘how do you follow that up with a match?’ It wasn’t a match, we actually fought. I hit him, he hit me, you know what I mean? If the fans enjoy it, they enjoy it.

Eddie Kingston is now feuding with 2Point0 while CM Punk is engaged in an intense feud with MJF. We certainly wonder if AEW will decide to revisit Eddie Kingston and CM Punk’s feud somewhere down the line.
