Eddie Kingston is finally going to face Chris Jericho to settle their feud once and for all. While the two will clash at the AEW Dynamite Fyter Fest week two, they’ll do it in a highly unique match.
Kingston and Jericho will face off against each other in a Barbed Wire Everywhere match. However, that’s not all, as there will also be a shark cage hanging over their heads. The shark cage will have members of the Jericho Appreciation Society inside it.
The shark cage is used as a nod to Shark Week on Discovery. However, Eddie Kingston doesn’t want to care about all that, as he just wants to get his hands on Chris Jericho. He told Scott Fishman of TV Insider that he doesn’t care what kind of match it is. He just wants to face off against Jericho.
I don’t give a f*ck about Shark Week. I just wanted to fight Jericho, and whatever the company needs to do to have — what is that word? — synergy, I’m all for it. I don’t care if it’s a shark cage or a dog cage. I just want to fight Jericho and throw him through barbed wire.
Eddie Kingston also revealed his thoughts on the Barbed Wire Everywhere setting of the match. He wants to take it to the extreme because he doesn’t like Chris Jericho. He gave many creative ideas such as putting barb wire on the ring bell, microphone, or baseball bat.
A spiderweb barbed wire bed. I would like to wrap up the barbed wire around the ring ropes. If I had my way, there would be more weapons for me to hurt Chris with. Let’s put barbed wire on the ring bell. Let’s put barbed wire on the microphone. Let’s put barbed wire on a baseball bat. Whatever I can hit him with would be great. People think I’m working with Chris. I don’t like him, really. I’m here to do my job. We’re here to do business, but I’m going to get in some shots he ain’t going to like because I really don’t like the guy. I think he is a carny lowlife. Everything I do is as real as possible. For some reason, Tony Khan, the match-maker, puts me in the ring with people I don’t like, but it’s part of the deal.
Kingston and Jericho have been feuding for months now. While Kingston won against Jericho at AEW Revolution, it still hasn’t concluded their feud. We don’t know which one of them will come out the victor, but the match will definitely be an extreme one.
