Eddie Kingston: I'd Probably Get Fired From WWE Real Quick For Slipping Certain Things In Promos

Eddie Kingston was immediately handed a microphone upon joining AEW and he's been talking ever since.

Kingston has always been one of the better promos in wrestling, but in AEW, a larger audience has seen just how good Kingston is with the mic in his hands. In-ring, Kingston relies more on emotions and moves, keeping to a structure that forces opponents to react.

During a Q&A session on AdFreeShows, Kingston was asked about structuring his matches and promos.

"I don't go into wrestling matches thinking about structure. I'm in my zone and I think about what I'd do to this person for real. Structure and stuff just comes with it. Structuring promos, I just need to know the person, the day, the time, and why. Sometimes, I start repeating myself so maybe sometimes I should structure it. Matches, I just go in there and fight and see how people react. Everyone talks about calling stuff. That's not me," he said.

When asked if he could thrive in a scripted WWE environment, Kingston replied, "I wouldn't like it, but I'd do my job. I love this, it's my passion, but it's also my job. Whoever I'm working for, if they tell me 'we need you to say whatever,' I do it. I wouldn't be happy, but I'd do it. I'd probably get in trouble and fired real quick because I'd slide in certain things about myself. My mother knew that and that's why she said sign with AEW."

Kingston had an offer from WWE following his appearance on AEW Dynamite when he challenged Cody Rhodes for the AEW TNT Title, but ultimately decided to sign with AEW.

Kingston and Jon Moxley are set to challenge The Young Bucks for the AEW Tag Team Titles at Double or Nothing on Sunday.
