Eddie Kingston Aiming To Win AEW World Title

The AEW World Championship is in Eddie Kingston’s sights

Eddie Kingston is currently on a roll, with the inaugural Modern Triple Crown holder holding championships in AEW, ROH, and NJPW.

However, despite this, Kingston has his sights set on the AEW World Championship, saying the following to FOX 8 WVUE-TV in New Orleans:

“When I become the world champion - and I say ‘the.’ I hate when people call it the AEW World Champion, ‘cause it means it’s just a world champion for that company. No. To me, for not just our company, but for wrestling in general, when you’re AEW World Champion, it’s the championship. So when I get that - and I’m putting it out in the universe so hopefully the universe gives back - then I’ll sit there and go, I’m that guy. I’m standing on my business now,” said Kingston.

Kingston has had two shots at the belt during his time in AEW, losing twice to longtime friend Jon Moxley, with their last title bout an I Quit match at AEW Full Gear 2020.

After numerous high profile losses, Kingston finally defeated long-time rival Claudio Castagnoli to lift the ROH World Championship at AEW Grand Slam III in September 2023, with Kingston defeating Moxley at Worlds End on December 30 2023 to become the first ever Continental Crown holder.
