Eddie Kingston sent the fans home happy.
The June 26 episode of AEW Dynamite saw Kenny Omega defeat Jungle Boy in the main event to retain his AEW World Championship. After the show went off the air, Eddie Kingston addressed the audience and made reference to "the competition on the other channel." Here is what he said:
"Because the competition sometimes doesn't want to hear their fans. I guess I'm burning another bridge. Surprise. Ladies and Gentlemen, AEW cares about their fans. Because we are not here just to get ourselves a paycheck. We're here every week, with you people, without you people, and we come out here and we bust our asses. Because we love professional wrestling. I will give the devil his due, but you saw a match between Kenny Omega and my dude, Jungle Boy, that you will not see on the other channel. You will not see legends who are respected on the other channel. You will not see people like me and my best friend on the other channel. And you will not see the heart that everybody in that locker room has on the other channel. Ladies and Gentlemen, I was supposed to send you home happy, but I'm speaking from my heart and the bottom line is this, we are AEW, we will see you Wednesday, and we want to hear you. I know our World Champion, I don't like him, but he does the 'So long, Goodnight,' all that jazz. I'm just going to say a little New York thing, "Try the veal. Tip your waitress. Get home safe."
On June 25th, WWE made the news when another round of roster cuts was announced. For more information on all the superstars who were let go, you can click here.
Kingston will be in action this coming Wednesday when he and Penta El Zero Miedo team up to take on The Young Bucks. If they win, they will earn an opportunity at The Bucks' Tag Team Titles.
