AEW Star Eddie Kingston’s Injury Much Worse Than Feared

Eddie Kingston AEW

Eddie Kingston is set to miss some time from AEW due to an injury but now the full extent of Kingston’s condition has been revealed.

During a chaotic no-ropes match at NJPW Resurgence, Eddie Kingston took a suplex off the apron through a table, and his knee crashed against the barricade. After the match, Kingston was attacked by The Young Bucks adding another layer to the planned Anarchy in the Arena match at Double or Nothing.

Following the match and subsequent beatdown, Kingston was struggling badly, favouring his leg. On the following episode of Dynamite, it was announced Eddie Kingston would be unable to compete at Double or Nothing, although no details on his injury were given. Kingston’s place alongside FTR and Bryan Danielson will be taken by Darby Allin.

Eddie Kingston Could Be Out Until 2025

It was reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Eddie Kingston suffered a broken leg during the match. But now PWInsider has provided an update on Kingston after a conversation with the man himself.

As well as his fractured tibia, Kingston confirmed that he has also suffered tears to his ACL and meniscus which require surgery. The timeframe for a return for these sorts of injuries is around nine months meaning Kingston might not be back in action until 2025. Kingston is quoted as saying “This is part of the game. Injuries happen. I will be back.”
