Popular AEW star Eddie Kingston has expressed his feelings towards former ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham.
Gresham made headlines after the recent Ring of Honor pay-per-view, Death Before Dishonor, where he allegedly requested his release from both AEW and ROH. The Octopus dropped its title to Claudio Castagnoli, apparently unhappy about the alleged lack of communication with Tony Khan.
During a virtual signature at Highspots Superstore, The Mad King opened up about his equation with the former ROH World Champion.
“Gresham – I don’t know, man, he’s just rubbing me the wrong way, I don’t know. I just have a bad feeling,” said Eddie Kingston. (H/T Wrestling Inc.)
Kingston and Gresham have storied histories, particularly in UK independents such as Progress and Fight Club Pro. However, they have not faced each other in singles competition since 2019.
Eddie Kingston is vocal about his feelings towards fellow AEW stars
It’s safe to say that Eddie Kingston has made quite a few enemies over the course of his long career in the independent scene, IMPACT Wrestling and now AEW.
Lots of people who don’t seem to like The Mad King just happened to be in AEW with him at the time of writing. He recently detailed how his promo bouts with CM Punk featured real-world references leading up to their Full Gear 2021 match.
“It wasn’t a promo. We’ve both wanted to tell each other that for fifteen years. That was fifteen years of development work for both of us?’ It wasn’t a match, we actually fought. I hit him, he hit me, you know what I mean? If the fans enjoy it, enjoy it. At this point, with someone like him I don’t like, I don’t care if people like it or not at that point.”
Kingston has taken to social media and television to vent his anger at Bryan Danielson and Chris Jericho, while also harboring a longstanding dislike for current ROH World Champion Claudio Castagnoli.
Some fans are wondering if Kingston made the above statements out of character, or if the star has genuine animosities with some of his fellow All Elite Wrestling contenders.
Will The Mad King get his revenge on Punk when The Second City Saint returns from injury? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
