Two AEW stars that are not the biggest fans of Eddie Kingston have kicked off the reaction to the news that he has apparently quit the promotion.
Eddie Kingston was scheduled to be part of the Face of the Revolution ladder match on the 1st of March edition of Dynamite. That was a contentious decision for Kingston already as he indicated that he only found out about the match on social media and also noted that he wanted to have a talk with AEW management.
Kingston was in San Francisco for Dynamite, getting involved in a massive brawl with his former friend Ortiz before the scheduled Face of the Revolution ladder match. When AEW broadcaster Lexi Nair tried to ask Kingston about it he simply stated “I quit AEW – peace.” With the star being given the opportunity to do this and with it being shared on social media by AEW it appears to be a part of a storyline but anything is possible.
It should be noted that Eddie Kingston has already filmed a match for the first Ring of Honor tapings that will air on March 2nd and things that happened at the ROH tapings could mean Kingston’s future lies in that promotion rather than AEW.
Ortiz and The Jericho Appreciation Society’s Daniel Garcia took to social media to comment on Kingston’s “quitting” and it’s safe to say, neither of them will shed any tears.
Taking the easy way out like always https://t.co/Q1zlA6CHuj
