During a recent virtual meet and greet with Pro Wrestling Junkies, Eddie Kingston revealed that he would like to wrestle Samoa Joe and Aleister Black. The former is back at NXT while the latter is still unemployed. Kingston said,

One dude who I do know that I’ve known for years, I met him in Germany years ago is Aleister Black, whatever, Tommy End. Ima call him by what I know him, Tommy End. He and I never got to fight each other out on the independents and I would love to fight him, out of respect, I’d love to fight him. Of course I wanted [Samoa] Joe to come. I fought Joe before but Joe’s my man, you know what I mean?

“I know Joe, I respect Joe, I’m so happy for him, I hope he’s getting that good cheddar over there, you know what I mean? He’s getting that bank, but of course I wanted to fight Joe again. When I first fought Joe, I came back from an ankle surgery so I was a little bit slow but all the other times I fought Joe, they were fun man and I just wanted to do it on TNT against Joe, or TBS, it don’t matter. It’s just on something, on some type of national television but I respect Joe, that’s my man.” (H/t Post Wrestling for transcriptions)

Kingston keeps an eye out at WWE

During the discussion, Eddie stated he doesn’t watch WWE religiously. But there are certain guys he does like to watch, like Kevin Owens and so many others.

He didn’t want to take names because he might forget someone’s name and hurt their feelings. All Eddie is saying is if he messes with them and they know who they are, he makes sure he checks out what they’re doing.
