Eddie Kingston made his AEW debut in July 2020, where he squared off against Cody Rhodes for the TNT Championship. While unsuccessful in the match, Kingston impressed many and eventually signed with the company.
Kingston wasted no time in establishing 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.
Speaking with Scott Fishman of TV Insider, Eddie Kingston talked about his growth in AEW. He stated that AEW is a different kind of world from the independent circuit.
“I make missteps every time I’m there, to be honest with you. I’m still learning that this is a different world. It’s still professional wrestling, but the backstage stuff, which I don’t like to tweet about or talk about — you got to get used to it. It’s a different world compared to the independents. The independents are very outlaw. We don’t have HR there. We police ourselves. I learn every day. That’s where I have grown. I’m able to now be open and learn. There are different ways of doing things that can help the locker room and also keep my mental sanity. I don’t want to be angry. I want to save all that anger and energy for my opponent or what I’m doing that night.”
Even Chris Jericho recently stated that Eddie Kingston reminded him of Randy Orton. We will have to wait and see what is next in store for Eddie Kingston in AEW.
