“So here we go, got covid won’t be able to make Strong this weekend,” Kingston tweeted. “It f–king sucks going to test again to see if I can make tv this week.”
Kingston was originally scheduled to team with Homicide and AEW star Wheeler Yuta to face Jay White and The Good Brothers. The tapings are scheduled to take place at Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas. White did react to Kingston”s tweet about missing the event due to catching COVID-19.
“His best bud must have told him about me,”
At All Out: Zero Hour, Kingston defeated NJPW star, Tomohiro Ishii. The match was Kingston’s return match after being suspended for a backstage altercation with Sammy Guevera. Ishii and Kingston faced each other before in May at NJPW Capital Collision. Ringside News wishes Eddie a speedy recovery.
