Eddie Kingston has a natural transition once his in-ring career is over.
Kingston is in the middle of the best run of his career as a regular on AEW television, but once his in-ring career is over, he will have his options open.
"I would definitely love to do commentary. I would love to agent. I would love to help younger talent," Kingston told Robbie Fox on My Mom's Basement. "There is some young talent that doesn't listen, like I did when I was younger, and I would like to tell them, 'It's not going to work out, man. Trust me. All this stuff you're fighting for that you think is so important, I'm telling you, two or three years from now, you're going to look back and go, why did I even care?' I look at my career and calling the wrong wrestler a mark. Next thing I know, he's the champion somewhere. Welp, not going there. Told a certain promoter to F off. Welp, not working there. I look back now and I'm like, 'that wasn't a big deal.' I had to be all tough and street. Wasn't a big deal. That's what I try to tell the younger guys. 'Shut up and listen. Everything you think is a big deal now, a lot of it, like 98% of it, later on you're gonna be like what was the point?' Everyone has a long journey. I can only lead a horse to water. If they don't drink the water, I gotta drown it. They are not a good horse."
Kingston already does guest commentary for AEW Dark: Elevation and, as stated above, helps the younger talent in the back.
Kingston is set to team with Jon Moxley to take on Minoru Suzuki & Lance Archer at AEW Rampage Grand Slam on Friday. Fightful will have live coverage of the event beginning at 10 p.m. ET.
