Eddie Kingston made his AEW debut in July 2020, where he faced off against Cody Rhodes for the TNT Championship. While unsuccessful in the match, Kingston impressed many and signed with the company.

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 “Doc” Chris Mueller of Bleacher Report, Eddie Kingston opened up about his mental health. He claimed that promos are like therapy for him.

It causes a lot of stress if you let it, you know what I mean? And I think that’s with any job, if we let any job stress us out. But what makes my job different is that I get to let out my frustrations in the ring. And I get to let out my frustrations verbally when we do promos or segments or whatever people want to call it, whatever the TV people call it. I’m doing me at the end of the day. I tell people my promos are my therapy.


Eddie Kingston is likely to continue his feud with Sammy Guevara after what transpired on AEW Rampage last week.
