• AEW Wrestler Says His Mom Told Him To Choose AEW Over WWE

While speaking on the latest episode of AEW Unrestricted, Eddie Kingston revealed that his mother was the main factor behind him going to AEW instead of WWE.

He said the following about it:

“My mom. My mom told me. I’m a mama’s boy in the sense that what she says goes. Her opinion holds a lot of weight with me to the point where I’ve been with girls I thought I was in love with and my mother will be like, ‘I don’t think she is good’ and I would break up with them. It’s just the way it is. My mother knows me better than anybody.

I was contacted by WWE and it was humbling. It was nice that they contacted me. I was trying to think where I should go. My mom said, look, ‘you won’t be happy in WWE. I know you and you won’t be happy. You will probably get fired three weeks in.’ I was like, ‘well, then I’m going to AEW’ and she said ‘good.’  She was the deciding factor. There were a lot of things going for AEW, but she was the deciding factor.”
