Eddie Kingston was called in to replace Jon Moxley when Tony Khan needed him for a house show. Unfortunately, it seems Eddie has been pulled from ScrapperMania after testing positive for COVID-19.
AEW recently unveiled their upcoming event, AEW House Rules, promising a more immersive fan experience. It has now been confirmed that Jon Moxley will also be taking part in the event.
Initially, Moxley was set to face Trent Seven at Scrappermania 7 in Ireland on March 17th for Over The Top Wrestling. But he was withdrawn from the lineup and replaced by Eddie Kingston.
However, OTT Wrestling took to Twitter and announced that Eddie Kingston tested positive for COVID and will miss upcoming OTT events, including ScrapperMania 7.
Unfortunately Eddie Kingston has tested positive for Covid and is currently isolated, as a result he can no longer appear at OTT #Wolverhampton #Dublin & #Belfast However Man Like Dereiss 🆚 NJPWs Gabriel Kidd in Wolverhampton Davey Richards 🆚 Big Damo in Dublin Belfast TBC
Following the March 1 episode of AEW Dynamite, Kingston had announced that he was “quitting” the company. However, he resurfaced on ROH television and is currently embroiled in a feud with the ROH World Champion, Claudio Castagnoli. We wish Eddie Kingston a speedy recovery and hope he returns as soon as possible.
