Eddie Kingston wanted to be safe.
Kingston was set to compete at DEFY Wrestling's Dark Horse event on December 18 against Schaff. Kingston was unable to appear at the event and was replaced by No Way.
Taking to social media, Kingston explained that he was exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID, but has been cleared himself.
So @defyNW I was exposed to someone who tested positive for covid, so I didn't want to take any risk until I got cleared and I am. I promise to get to Seattle 2022.— Eddie Kingston #BlackLivesMatter (@MadKing1981) December 20, 2021
