Eddie Kingston

Eddie Kingston could be set for a spell out of the ring.

The evening of May 12th was a night to forget for Eddie Kingston who lost his NJPW Openweight Title, got attacked by The Young Bucks, and may have suffered a serious injury.

After being beaten by Gabe Kidd in a brutal no-ropes match, Jack Perry made his way down the aisle, enabling The Bucks to jump Kingston from behind. The attack ended with the Mad King broken in the ring after an EVP Trigger.

Furthermore, it’s been reported that Kingston suffered a very real injury in his match with Kidd.

Eddie Kingston Suffers Knee Injury

During the match with Kidd, Kingston took a Suplex off the apron and his knee crashed against the barricade. While Kingston obviously played up the injury as the match ended, it’s been reported the injury could be significant.

Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Bryan Alvarez confirmed Kingston suffered an injury, but there’s no word on how bad it is.

“Eddie did hurt his leg. So I don’t know how bad his leg is hurt. But when he went into the barricade and went down, one of the reasons it took so long for Jack Perry to come out is they were making sure that Eddie was able to get in the ring.

And so you can even hear, I’m pretty sure, on the live feed. You could hear him say something like, ‘I think I can make it to the back or something like that.’ But he said he said something to one of the referees that I don’t think you were supposed to hear.

He managed to get into the ring, and they were able to do the angle. But he was limping bad backstage. And I mean, the fact that he’s walking around, like, hopefully, he’s gonna be alright. But it could be a serious injury. We don’t know yet. But he definitely hurt his leg when he hit it on that guardrail, and there was concern that he wouldn’t be able to do the angle afterwards.”

Eddie Kingston is scheduled to take part in Anarchy at the Arena at Double or Nothing on May 26th.
