Eddie Kingston likes making people mad, it means he got you.
Eddie Kingston is a man who wears his heart on his sleeve. Eddie Kingston is not a shy man. That is part of his charm. Sometimes, Eddie Kingston will reference WWE and promos on television and sometimes in digital exclusives where he will openly talk about being proud to be a professional wrestler and not a sports entertainer.
Sometimes, when Kingston does this, he incurs the “wrath” of angry fans on the internet. Whenever he's faced with any backlash like this, Kingston says he laughs, because he knows he's done his job and got under someone's skin.
Speaking to Freddie Prinze Jr. on Wrestling With Freddie, Eddie Kingston explained but of course, he doesn't want WWE to go out of business. He has friends there. But he does like making people angry.
“Side note, I love how mad people get when I mention anything in WWE. I love it,” he said. “Oh God, when I say ‘sports entertainer,’ they are like, ‘F you, I hope you die,’ and I'm sitting there laughing, because I'm like, c’mon, I got you. I have friends at WWE, do you think I want that place to shut down? Absolutely not! I want my friends to eat. I just do things to stir it up,” said Kingston.
Kingston is currently in a rivalry with a self-professed sports entertainer, Chris Jericho. Kingston defeated Chris Jericho at AEW Revolution 2022. After the win another old rival, CM Punk, suggested he go to Disney World as he joked Kingston isn't used to winning. Learn more here.
