Know one who follows the professional wrestling world can ever say that Eddie Kingston didn’t pay his dues over the years.
Now, after making the rounds on the independent wrestling scene since 2002, Kingston has earned himself a contract with All Elite Wrestling (AEW), today the company tweeted.
Kingston, 38, impressed AEW brass when he answered Cody Rhodes’s open challenge match on the promotion’s Dynamite show a week ago. He wrestled well and even impressed with a quality promo. Many wrestling insiders felt it was just a matter of time that the Yonkers, NY, put pen to paper and become part of the rising federation.
Kingston, known as Edward Moore outside of the ring, has wrestled for the likes of top indie pro wrestling outfits such as EVOLVE Wrestling, Chikara, Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), IWA Mid-South, AAW, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), and Ring of Honor, among others.
Additionally, “Mad King” had short stays with Impact Wrestling and NWA.
