Eddie Kingston On Why It Doesn’t Make Sense For Him To Be In WWE Or AEW

During an interview with Chris Van Vliet, Eddie Kingston gave his thoughts on why he doesn’t think it’s logical for him to be in AEW or WWE. Here’s what he had to say:

It does make sense and I’ll tell you why. We talked about it a little bit. It’s a business. If WWE sees something that they can use me for to sell merch or get viewers, then they’ll use me. AEW, same thing. If they see, ‘Oh, Eddie Kingston can bring in this many people,’ ‘Oh, he can sell this many shirts,’ or ‘He’s a good fit here,’ then they’ll use me. And like I was telling you before, I never wanna be that guy that’s just somewhere and I’m just there. There’s no ideas for me, I’m just sitting in the back waiting.

Because I did that on my first time at Impact. You know what I mean? And when I was part of the DCC with Bram and James Storm. After a while, they were just like, ‘All right, sit there Eddie.’ And I was like, ‘Oh,you know.’ [shrugs] ‘I’m here’…they had nothing for me, but I’m still under contract so I have to show up and I have to sit there … I would get paid if I wasn’t on [due to the pay-per-appearance contract], but I had to be there. So that’s why I don’t want to be that guy.
