Pro wrestling is full of diverse characters, and not everyone is going to get along with each other. It appears that there is some legit heat between two AEW stars in Bryan Danielson and Eddie Kingston.
Bryan Danielson and Eddie Kingston are two very different kinds of stars. This is apparent by their in-ring style and their training regiment as well. Apparently, they don’t see eye-to-eye on enough things that there is genuine disdain between them.
During a recent Sports Illustrated interview, the AEW star discussed his defeat to Danielson in the ongoing AEW Continental Classic Tournament. He expressed a dislike for Danielson and mentioned a willingness to break his other eye socket.
“I’d love another match against Bryan. I don’t like the guy. I’d love to break his other eye socket.”
“We don’t have a lot in common, except for our love of professional wrestling. I make up things in my head so I hate my opponent and be more vicious when I’m in the ring. I can’t say it now because I don’t want to get too amped, but I’m getting an edge any way I can. I’ve got my motivation, and it’s a must-win. If you love hard-hitting wrestling, you’re going to watch. We’re going out on our shields and fighting for the sport we love.”
Bryan Danielson is also a part of AEW’s disciplinary committee. He was not only in the meeting that determined CM Punk’s firing, but he is also reportedly the one issuing fines for social media behavior that they find unacceptable for the AEW brand.
We will have to see how the story unfolds for Bryan Danielson and Eddie Kingston. At this point, the two are still doing their thing in AEW, as they blaze their own paths. Only time will tell how things turn out if they ever meet again.
