Eddie Kingston Says It Was Jon Moxley's Idea To Include Homicide At AEW Rampage Grand Slam

AEW Rampage Grand Slam was capped off in a big way as Eddie Kingston & Jon Moxley defeated Minoru Suzuki & Lance Archer in a lights out match.

Kingston & Moxley were assisted by Homicide, who Kingston has often referred to as "The King of New York."

Though Kingston and Homicide have a long history and relationship, it was Moxley who suggested he do the run in.

"It was Mox’s idea because Homicide came to visit and hang out and see me. Then we were like, we got to get him on," Kingston told Joseph Staszewski of the New York Post. "He just came in to say hello and Mox was like I’m gonna go talk to Tony, we have to do something. We surprised him (Homicide) and it meant a lot to him. He’s not a real emotional dude, He was very grateful."

Moxley recently entered inpatient alcohol treatment and Kingston, who has been very open regarding his struggles with depression, anxiety, drinking, and mental health, made sure to let him know that he has his back.

"Leading up to everything before he went I just told straight up, ‘dog I’m here for you. I’m not going nowhere.’ That’s all I texted him. I’m here for you. I’m not going nowhere, I got you. I believe that’s all what some people need. They need to know they’re gonna be supported no matter what," he said.

Kingston wrote an open letter on the Player's Tribune detailing his struggles. You can read his letter by clicking here.
