Eddie Kingston took to his Instagram recently and revealed that he deactivated his Twitter account after seeing all the ‘evil sh*t’ directed towards Riho on Twitter in the past week.
Terry Funk is the G.O.A.T. I got rid of my tweeter because I saw some evil sh*t tweeted at Riho and I’m done.
AEW’s former Women’s World Champion Riho deactivated her account upon returning to the organization, causing many fans to worry. However, she has been making frequent appearances on AEW TV and even expressed gratitude for the support she has received on Instagram.
