The first recorded singles match between Jon Moxley and Eddie Kingston took place in front of about 250 people in 2011. The next time they went one-on-one, it was on Dynamite in 2020 for Moxley’s World Championship (although their first meeting did have more people in attendance due to the pandemic, but hey-ho). 

Upon crossing paths in AEW, Mox and Kingston drew on their real-life friendship to deliver some of the most compelling and naturalistic promos the company had seen up to that point. When Mox beat Kingston on Dynamite, he did so by making him pass out, not tap out, setting the stage for a vicious I Quit rematch in the main event of Full Gear 2020. 

The pair would rekindle their friendship after Eddie saved his buddy from being lightly sparkled to death at Revolution 2021, starting a tag team run. When Mox started to get friendly with Claudio Castagnoli, who Kingston was not the biggest fan of shall we say, they were at each other’s throats again, including during the Stadium Stampede match Wembley’s All In. 

Despite their programme, the two remained friends while trying to batter each other which all led to Moxley giving Kingston a cheeky kiss on the head after the Mad King defeated him to become AEW Continental Champion at Worlds End 2023.
