Eddie Kingston made his AEW debut back in July of 2020, where he competed against Cody Rhodes for the TNT Championship during his open challenge. While he was unsuccessful in the match, Kingston impressed many and signed with the company. Kingston also cried in his hotel room after beating Chris Jericho.

Earlier this year, Chris Jericho and Eddie Kingston had been feuding on AEW television. It culminated in an intense match at AEW Revolution, as both competitors gave it their all to win the match.

In the end, Eddie Kingston was victorious after he made Chris Jericho tap out. While speaking on  The Wrestling Perspective podcast, Eddie Kingston revealed that he cried in his hotel room after defeating Chris Jericho at AEW Revolution.

“I remember after the match with Jericho, I went back to the hotel room before hanging out with everybody, and I just cried because I didn’t know what else to do. I didn’t know whether to scream, yell, or whatever. I didn’t know how to handle that moment. I still see myself as that 17-year-old kid on the street corner. I’m just trying to do good. That’s all I’m trying to do. I’m just trying to be better every day.” 


Eddie Kingston returned on last week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, as they tried to exact revenge on the Jericho Appreciation Society but failed. We’ll have to see how their feud will be booked in the coming weeks.
