AEW star Eddie Kingston recently took a shot at WWE during a post-Dynamite promo last Saturday. The veteran performer said that ‘the other channel don’t respect legends’ and made allusions to WWE not respecting their fanbase.

Speaking to WrestleZone, Kingston elaborated further on the comments and why he and others in AEW decide to take shots at the competition in a public manner.

‘Let’s get this question out of the way,’ Eddie Kingston began. ‘Let’s all calm down. You think I’m going to go bury the locker room that I work for? No, plus I love our locker room. I love AEW. What do you want from me?”

“They’ll [WWE] probably do the same thing cause you know what I mean? They want their home team to win”

“They’re paying me! They’re putting me on national television after ’“ it’ll be 20 years in October” Kingston continued. “Of course I’m gonna rah-rah AEW. Relax. Relax. I expect people from the other joint [to slate us] if they’re allowed to mention our names.”

“They’ll probably do the same thing cause you know what I mean? They want their home team to win” Eddie Kingston elaborated. “It’s just like the NFL or Major League Baseball, man. You wanna go with your home team, AEW’s my team. That’s my squad.’

Kingston would finish by saying that competition is good for pro wrestling, citing the 90s and ECW ‘calling out’ other promotions as an example.

‘Man, competition’s good. Watch pro wrestling. I don’t care” Kingston concluded. “I grew up during days in the ’90s where you had guys in ECW calling out everybody.”
