AEW’s CM Punk Once Called Eddie Kingston "Fat, Lazy And Unsafe”

Punk and Kingston shared locker-rooms back in the early/mid 2000s

AEW’s CM Punk and Eddie Kingston dropped one of the promos of the year on the November 5 edition of AEW: Rampage, with Kingston claiming his issues with Punk started way back on the Indies.

Now it seems, there may be more than a hint of truth to the story.

Per a report from The Wrestling Observer Newsletter’s Dave Meltzer, Punk once went off at Kingston at an IWA Mid-South show, with Meltzer writing:

“A wrestler/subscriber noted to us after watching the Kingston-Punk segment on Rampage, ‘I can fully vouch for Eddie’s promo on Punk the other night. I was sitting right there in an IWA Mid-South locker room when Punk called Eddie and his partner at the time, Blackjack Marciano, fat, lazy and unsafe. Marciano had just accidentally injured Delirious in a previous match and Punk was hot about it, so just buried them nonstop. I could see why Eddie hung onto that hate and anger for so long.’”

Despite a limited amount of build, Kingston vs. Punk has become one of the most hotly anticipated bouts at Full Gear, marking the first time the two will have ever faced off inside a wrestling ring.
