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 Jon Moxley tried to get WWE to sign him years ago.

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.

While speaking with TalkSPORT, Eddie Kingston talked about his friendship with Jon Moxley and revealed that Jon Moxley tried to get WWE to sign him years ago.

“Jon has been one of the biggest advocates for me in my whole career, since we met. A lot of people don’t know that he was trying to get me into WWE years ago. Trying his best to do what he could. ‘Hey, I told this guy to check you out.’ And this is me and Jon not talking for years and out of nowhere he’ll text me ‘Hey, I told so and so to watch your match from blah blah blah’ and I’ll be like ‘Who is this?’ And he’ll be like ‘Jon’ and I’ll be like ‘Oh hey, what’s up Mox?’ [laughs]. That’s the kind of friends we are.”


Jon Moxley is currently absent from AEW television after getting into rehab. On the other hand, Eddie Kingston is now feuding with 2Point0 in AEW, so we will have to wait and see how their feud will progress.
