Eddie Kingston: Bout With CM Punk Isn't The Biggest, It's The Most Personal

Eddie Kingston is set to clash with CM Punk on Saturday at AEW Full Gear.

Last year at Full Gear, Kingston unsuccessfully challenged Jon Moxley for the AEW World Championship. While there are no titles on the line Saturday, Kingston is bringing the same hunger to the ring against CM Punk.

"It’s 15 years in the making,” Kingston said in an interview with Christopher Walker of DAZN. “I wouldn’t say it’s the biggest match of my career but it’s definitely the most personal match. Professionally, it was me and [Jon] Moxley last year because I truly believe in my heart that the AEW World title is the biggest prize in all of America. That was the biggest match for me, but this weekend, personally, it’s me and Punk.”

Though the clash with Punk is personal, Kingston still has his eyes on the prize.

“Fighting CM Punk was never the goal for me. He wasn’t there when I first got to AEW. The goal for me has always to be a champion. Whether it’s me and Mox as a tag team, the TNT championship, or the big one, the grandaddy of them all. The goal has always been. to be the top man. If beating Punk gets me that one step closer to it then that’ll be the icing on the cake," he said.

In another interview ahead of Full Gear, Kingston spoke to Louis Dangoor of GiveMeSport and discussed his AEW Rampage promo segment with Punk. You can find his full comments by clicking here.

Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Full Gear beginning at 7 p.m. ET with the buy in.
