Eddie Kingston now has some direction in All Elite Wrestling, and cut a fiery promo to kick it off. However, it wasn't as originally presented.
Kingston approached the Lucha Bros. duo of Rey Fenix and Pentagon, as well as Butcher & Blade on the August 22 episode of AEW Dynamite. Taped on August 13, the promo saw some editing, as originally reported by Fightful Select:
Fightful has learned that a mention of wrestling legend and current WWE Superstar Rey Mysterio was edited off the taped August 22 edition of AEW Dynamite. Eddie Kingston mentioned Mysterio during his promo with Fenix, Pentagon, Butcher & Blade, but it was removed from the show. We weren't given a reason why. Mysterio has been working in WWE without a contract of late.
Word emerged recently that All Elite Wrestling had matched the contract offers made to him by WWE. Mysterio returned to the ring this week to team with his son Dominik, who made his debut.
