When Eddie Kingston made his debut as part of an open challenge for Cody Rhodes TNT Championship, those who were familiar with Kingston knew All Elite Wrestling got a huge boon. Kingston was nearly ready to hang his boots up, yet a few months later he was in the main event of a PPV alongside Jon Moxley challenging for the AEW World Championship.
He’s been in the middle of a career resurgence, as fans around the world are learning what many already knew: Eddie Kingston is one of the best professional wrestlers around. In the ring, on the microphone, and behind the scenes, Kingston is damn near untouchable. That is what makes him so beloved, but the fact that he doesn’t forget his roots doesn’t hurt either.
Eddie Kingston Made His Long Awaited Return To AIW This Weekend
On April 30th, 2021, Absolute Intense Wrestling ran a show under the title of Is This Something You Might Be Interested In? It was their first show back in their home venue in Cleveland, Ohio with fans back in the building. That alone made this show huge for the fans of AIW, but things got even more special when the music of Eddie Kingston hit.
From 2012 to 2019, AIW was one of the main promotions you would find Eddie Kingston at, making him a fan favorite to most of the company’s fanbase. Back in February, he tweeted out that he can’t wait to make it back to an AIW show, and at Is This Something You Might Be Interested In? he got that chance. For the first time in 16 months he was back, and he tore the house down alongside Dominic Garrini in a surprise match. The event is available on IWTV, and is absolutely worth a look.
Potentially The Next Challenger For Kenny Omega In AEW?
However, the main focus of Eddie Kingston will remain as AEW. Right now, he’s aligned with Jon Moxley as the only two men fighting against The Elite. Kenny Omega, Don Callis, The Young Bucks, and The Good Brothers have them majorly outnumbered, but Kingston & Moxley haven’t stepped down yet.
Next week on AEW the special episode of AEW Dynamite known as Blood & Guts, Kingston will team with Moxley to take on Kenny Omega & Michael Nakazawa in a tag team match. With Double Or Nothing not too far away, and this being the main feud there for Omega? It seems like we could see Eddie Kingston get another chance to be AEW World Champion, as the alternative of another match between Kenny Omega & Jon Moxley so soon isn’t as appealing.
