Eddie Kingston has no interest in ever leaving All Elite Wrestling.

The 40-year-old said as much during a recent appearance on the Straight Shooters podcast. Stating that he had worked hard to get where he is and doesn’t really “got nowhere else to go”, Kingston added that becoming a world champion was still on his list of goals (h/t Fightful):

“Where am I gonna go, dog? I’m good. I’m good. I worked for this. I don’t care. I don’t. I worked for this. AEW gave me my shot first, right? You know what I mean? I’m a loyal guy … I’m not knocking nobody, just chill … but when people say ‘Yeah, I’m here forever’, that’s cool. That’s them. I’m telling you from me, and my word is my bond. I ain’t got nowhere else to go. Don’t wanna be nowhere else. Having a blast, trying to beat up people in the ring. Trying to be world champ. Wherever I’m at, trying to be better than I was yesterday.”

Continuing, Eddie praised AEW for being willing to take a shot on him after close to two decades on the independents, as well as letting him work NJPW shows as part of the two promotions’ working relationship:

“I’m like a dog, man, when it comes to loyalty. That’s it. My word is my bond and [AEW] fits me because they took the shot. If people wanna know any deeper, it’s basically they let me be me. There’s no character. There’s no, ‘You can’t say that.’ … I got freedom. It’s just a really good environment when you shut out the negativity and understand this is the pro wrestling business. Not everyone is going to like each other. That’s it. Take care of your own stuff.”

Currently teaming with Santana and Ortiz in an AEW feud against the Jericho Appreciation Society, Kingston is currently booked to face Tomohiro Ishii at NJPW Capital Collision on 14 May.
