Chris Jericho Heaps Praise On “One In A Million” AEW Rival

Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho has nothing for admiration for former rival Eddie Kingston.

A fan account posted a quote of Kingston’s on social media, where The Mad King hit back at his critics.

“People can say whatever they want about my look. It doesn’t bother me. They don’t know the work that I do. They don’t know the stuff I do at the gym. They don’t know what I do at Muay Thai, you know what I mean? They don’t know.

And then having to stretch for hours just to get a little bit loose and take a hot bath and a cold shower and jump in an ice bath and do a sauna after every workout and after every Muay Thai class and every Jiu Jitsu class that I’m starting to get back into again. On my cheat meals, they say maybe I go a little bit too far, but I’m gonna do me. At the end of the day, people don’t know what I do for this.”

Jericho quoted the post on X by also showing his admiration for the new Ring of Honor World Champion:

Eddie Kingston is one in a million. Fight me…
Kingston and Jericho went to war in 2022. Beginning at the Revolution pay-per-view, Kingston defeated Jericho via submission but Jericho refused to shake Kingston’s hand afterwards. On the following episode of Dynamite, Kingston was beaten down by the newly formed Jericho Appreciation Society. Brutal matches featuring Jericho and Kingston followed including the second-ever Blood and Guts match and a barbed-wire deathmatch.
