A top AEW star won’t be back in action for several weeks.

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 laying 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 To Miss Several Weeks Of AEW Action

It’s now been reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Eddie Kingston suffered a broken leg during the match. There had been hopes he’d be able to compete at Double or Nothing, but it quickly became clear the injury was far too serious.

“It was a great angle to set up Anarchy in the Arena, but with Kingston suffering what was being talked about on Dynamite backstage as a broken leg although that was not confirmed it was the exact injury, obviously that changed things.

He was limping badly after the match and they were hopeful the injury wasn’t bad enough to put him out. But on 5/13, they found out the leg was broken and had to change around Dynamite and the main event for Double or Nothing.”

There’s no word on how long Kingston will be out of action. Following Dynamite, the star shared a photo on Instagram of himself in a wheelchair with his leg in a brace.
