Eddie Kingston Would Love To Have Cesaro In AEW So He Can Smack The Shit Out Of Him

If you haven't already noticed, Eddie Kingston is not a fan of Cesaro's.

The Mad King was a recent guest on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast and discussed a number of topics, including who he'd like to have a program with to clean up any unfinished business. The first name he uttered was that of former WWE Superstar Cesaro (Claudio Castagnoli). The two feuded between 2009 and 2011 in CHIKARA, with Claudio defeating Eddie the last time they squared off.

"There's a couple of people. I know I say I don't want him at AEW, but Claudio Castagnoli, I would love him to be in AEW so I can smack the shit out of him. We have a lot of unfinished business. Like you said, you don't want to know the backstage stuff, that's fine, but there's some serious stuff between us. I would love to end it and see if he does the right thing at AEW. But again, not my show," Kingston said.

Continuing on, Kingston said CM Punk would be someone else he'd like to have another shot at, noting that there is more history between them that could be explored. That said, Cesaro remains at the top of his list, admitting that he'd like to end their feud.

"Punk, definitely. At least he's in AEW, so I may have another chance at that. Because like you said, there's a lot more history there to explore with me and Punk. I'll get with anybody in the ring, I don't really care. The way I look at it is, you're not going to pull out a gun, you're not going to pull out a knife, I'm fine. I'll be okay. I've had things broken before. Broken bones heal, I'll be alright. But definitely without a shadow of a doubt, Claudio is number one and Punk's definitely number two. But Claudio for sure because I kind of want to end the beef we've had," he stated.

On February 24, it was reported that Cesaro's contract with WWE has expired as the two sides could not come to terms on a new contract. As a result, there is no 90-day non-compete clause, making Cesaro a free agent. He has not wrestled since the February 11 episode of SmackDown.

AEW President Tony Khan recently stated that Cesaro joining the promotion is always something he would be open to. Click here to read his full remarks.
