AEW’s Eddie Kingston Reflects On ‘Marking Out’ For Sting
“When I looked over, I was like, 'this is a trip.’”
Much has been said about AEW’s treatment of legendary wrestling figures, with wrestling fans praising the company for effectively utilising iconic stars such as Sting.
Eddie Kingston can’t help but agree, after visibly being excited to be in the Stinger’s presence during AEW: Dynamite Homecoming on August 4.
"I saw him and in my head I'm like, 'I'm on TNT, where I used to watch Nitro, and Sting was a major player in that,’” said Kingston to Inside the Ropes “Sting, at one point in time, you could say Sting was WCW. Everyone left except for him. He never left until the company closed doors. When I looked over, I was like, 'this is a trip.' That's why I grabbed him and I said, 'Hey, it's f****** Sting.' I guess he heard that and he liked it. Then Mox heard it and came over. The fan that appreciates pro wrestling came out of me. I appreciated the fact that the history; TNT and Sting. Whether people want to believe it or not, history is written by the victors. You have WWE's side, but in all honestly, at one point in time, WCW was the biggest company in America and Sting was part of that. Crow Sting is one of the reasons why. You have to give him credit. It was nuts.”
