AEW announced earlier today on Twitter that Eddie Kingston has signed with the promotion. The “Mad King” made his debut on last Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite and cut an epic promo that was widely praised, followed by an even more epic showdown against Cody Rhodes for the TNT championship. The American Nightmare would eventually pick up the win, but couldn’t stop Kingston from powerbombing him onto a pile of tacks.
