Eddie Kingston has given details on how he joined up with Death Triangle members Rey Fenix and Penta El Zero Miedo on AEW television.
Fenix and Penta had begun the Death Triangle faction alongside PAC. However, due to travel restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, PAC was unable to appear for AEW for several months in 2020. During this time, Fenix and Penta would team up with Kingston and The Butcher and The Blade.
Speaking exclusively to Inside The Ropes’ own Kenny McIntosh, the’Mad King’ explained that the team came about because the Lucha Brothers needed a mouthpiece and he had known both them and The Butcher and The Blade for a long time.
“Well, I’ve known Penta and Fenix for years from the independents, same thing with Butcher and Blade. PAC wasn’t around and they needed a mouthpiece. Again timing is everything man. COVID hit, PAC couldn’t make it, and they needed a mouthpiece. They were just like, ‘Put Eddie in there’. I just went in and did real life. I’ve known them forever, we are a family and we hang out together. All this stuff. So we just bring real life into it and that’s where it all kind of took off from there.”
The team lasted until November 2020, when PAC returned to AEW. Kingston, The Butcher, and The Blade attacked the UK star and the Lucha Brothers turned on Kingston to come to his rescue, reforming Death Triangle in the process. PAC later defeated Kingston at New Year’s Smash the following January.
Eddie Kingston is currently teaming with his longtime friend Jon Moxley. The pair will take on Lance Archer and Minoru Suzuki of Suzuki-Gun at the Rampage edition of AEW Grand Slam on September 24th. The match is a result of Suzuki feeling disrespected by AEW and Moxley when his music wasn’t allowed to play in full for the traditional crowd sing-a-long to ‘Kazi Ni Nare’.
