Eddie Kingston Addresses Title Loss At AEW Full Gear: I'm Still Going To Be World Champion

Eddie Kingston addresses his AEW World Title loss to Jon Moxley at Full Gear.

In the main event of the Full Gear pay-per-view on November 7, Kingston lost an "I Quit" match to Moxley, losing out on winning his first AEW title. Kingston had been mostly inactive on social media since then, saying that his phone is broken and wasn't able to do much.

However, on the most recent episode of Being The Elite, Kingston talks about the loss. Nearly on the verge of tears, Kingston said he had sold his soul to the devil. Despite being unsuccessful at Full Gear, Kingston said he still will be world champion one day.

"I know the winners do the press conference but I just wanted to put this out there on the social. Jon said something to me in the ring towards the end, 'It's over.' I told him, 'It's never over.' I sold my soul to the devil and the devil is playing the game of pro wrestling, something I've never done. I politicked. I jumped him. I talked shit about him and went to Tony to get a match. I did everything I said I would never do just for the opportunity. I don't regret it, but it's just another sin that I have to pay for. But I'll be back because I don't have anything else in my life. You guys think it's a joke because it's a character. It's not. I don't have anything else other than pro wrestling. I wanted to be world champion and I'm going to be, but I thought tonight was the night and that's what really messes with my head. I didn't want to quit. There was no way out. My neck went numb, that's an old injury. I'll be back Wednesday. I'll be back Wednesday," Kingston said.
