Eddie Kingston couldn't help but just be a fan when he shared the ring with Sting on AEW Dynamite.
At AEW Dynamite Homecoming in July, Kingston teamed with Jon Moxley & Darby Allin to take on 2point0 (Jeff Parker & Matt Lee) & Daniel Garcia. After the bout, the fight continued between the six men and Sting got involved.
No one was happier to fight alongside Sting than Kingston & Moxley.

Speaking to Inside The Ropes, Kingston reflected on the moment.
"I saw him and in my head I'm like, 'I'm on TNT, where I used to watch Nitro, and Sting was a major player in that.' Sting, at one point in time, you could say Sting was WCW. Everyone left except for him. He never left until the company closed doors. When I looked over, I was like, 'this is a trip.' That's why I grabbed him and I said, 'Hey, it's fucking Sting.' I guess he heard that he liked it. Then Mox heard it and came over. The fan that appreciates pro wrestling came out of me. I appreciated the fact that the history; TNT and Sting. Whether people want to believe it or not, history is written by the victors. You have WWE's side, but in all honestly, at one point in time, WCW was the biggest company in America and Sting was part of that. Crow Sting is one of the reasons why. You have to give him credit. It was nuts," he said.
Kingston has fought alongside Sting a handful of times since then, including closing the August 20 episode of AEW Rampage with "The Icon."
Both Sting and Kingston will be in action at Arthur Ashe as Sting teams with Allin to fight FTR on AEW Dynamite while Kingston teams with Moxley to face Minoru Suzuki & Lance Archer at AEW Rampage.
