AEW Stars Comment On Eddie Kingston Quitting The Company

Eddie Kingston

Ahead of the March 1st episode of AEW Dynamite, Eddie Kingston was announced as part of the Face of the Revolution Ladder match to crown the number one contender to the TNT Championship.

However, speaking in an interview earlier in the week with Sactown Sports 1140, Kingston sowed seeds of doubt about his appearance, alluding to problems between himself and management and saying that he might not even make the show.

“I may not be at Sacramento though, it all depends on how certain things go in the locker room with the office. Especially with my match that’s coming up on Wednesday, not really happy about it. Yeah, so we have to have a talk, me and I’m not going to say who’s the office, everybody knows about Tony [Khan] but there are others. We all got to get together and talk. I want to go everywhere but I also, ya know, I got to be a businessman and put my foot down at some point. In a calm manner, that’s what I’m still trying to learn, a professional manner.”

His comments came as he’s also been vocal on social media about having problems with members of the AEW roster, calling out everyone from MJF to Jon Moxley.

Kingston did indeed show up for the ladder match, but he ended up brawling with former ally Ortiz and the two made their way out of the arena long before Powerhouse Hobbs was crowned the eventual Face of the Revolution, meaning he’ll face either Samoa Joe or Wardlow for the TNT Championship following Revolution. Kingston and Ortiz were separated backstage.

After Dynamite went off the air, Kingston was approached for a backstage interview, but instead of answering any questions about his brawl with Ortiz, he simply declared that he was quitting the company.

“I quit AEW. Peace.”

It should be noted that Kingston has taken part in the first ROH tapings for the episode that will air later tonight, and it seems that his future could be with Ring of Honor for the foreseeable future.

Daniel Garcia And Ortiz Aren’t Sympathetic Toward Eddie Kingston After He Quit AEW

After Kingston made his sensational announcement after Dynamite, Ortiz took to social media to comment on the situation, accusing his former friend of taking the easy way out.

“Taking the easy way out like always”

Meanwhile, Jericho Appreciation Society member Daniel Garcia seemed elated that Kingston was gone from the company.

“Used to pray for times like this”
