• AEW Wrestler Reveals Why He Decided To Not Sign With WWE

During an interview with Joe Roderick, AEW wrestler Eddie Kingston talked about not signing with WWE, his time in All Elite Wrestling & more.

Below are the highlights:

On why he decided to not sign with WWE:

“[WWE] never gave me any inkling that they wanted me, so I never really thought I was ever going to go there or even get a look at.

I got looked at more seriously after my match with Cody (Rhodes), when I debuted. And yeah, there was a consideration.

My mom was a big factor [in my decision]. Me and her talked about it, I had a chance to pick and choose. My mom was just like, ‘Look, you ain’t going to be happy at WWE.’

That was her feeling, and she’s an outsider, so she doesn’t know any of the ins and outs, or the rumors.”

On making a mistake in his first AEW promo:

“I went out there, I started talking sh*t to Cody and to Arn, and I called him Cody Rhodes. And at the time, they didn’t have the Rhodes name. So my first day on the job, Tony Khan runs out and goes, ‘Hey, we’ve got to re-do it.’

Now I’m turned up 1,000, you know what I mean? And I feel someone tap me and I turn over and I go, ‘What the f**k do you want?!’ And I go, ‘Oh hey, Tony.’

So that was probably the last time I had to be stopped or said [to], ‘Hey, don’t say that.’”
