Top AEW Star Removed From Anarchy In The Arena Match

AEW Bryan Danielson FTR Eddie Kingston

A top star in AEW will no longer compete in the Anarchy in the Arena match at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view.

At AEW Double or Nothing on May 25th in Las Vegas, an Anarchy in the Arena match was made official with two teams of four wrestlers. On one side, The Elite’s Kazuchika Okada, Jack Perry and The Young Bucks – Matthew & Nicholas Jackson will be one of the teams. Their opponents were announced as FTR’s Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler, Bryan Danielson, and Eddie Kingston.

There is a change in the match due to an injury. At the NJPW Resurgence event on May 11th, Eddi Kingston lost the NJPW Strong Openweight Championship to Gabe Kidd.

After the match, Kingston was attacked by the Young Bucks (Matthew & Nicholas Jackson) and Jack Perry. Kingston was actually injured during the match with Kidd and was seen favoring his right leg. The storyline explanation will be that The Elite took him out.

On AEW Dynamite in Everett, Washington, they showed highlights of Kingston getting attacked. That also led to Harwood & Wheeler doing a promo about how they won’t have Kingston in the Anarchy in the Arena Match, but they found somebody else.

Darby Allin To Replace Eddie Kingston At AEW Double Or Nothing

In the main event of AEW Dynamite, Kazuchika Okada defeated Dax Harwood. After the match, The Elite foursome of The Young Bucks, Okada & Perry beat up Harwood, Wheeler & Danielson. That led to Darby Allin making his return after missing about two months. Allin cleaned house with his skateboard. It was announced moments later that Allin was replacing Kingston on Team AEW at Double or Nothing.

As for Eddie Kingston, PWInsider reported that Eddie will likely be out of action for several months due to a right leg injury.

Kingston posted a photo on Instagram where he is sitting in a wheelchair while his right knee has a big brace on it.

Everybody here at TJRWrestling wishes Eddie Kingston all the best in his recovery from that injury.
