AEW's Eddie Kingston: Why I Don't Like Chris Jericho
The two are on a collision course in AEW
The animosity between Chris Jericho and Eddie Kingston shows no sign of slowing down, even as Kingston recuperates at home following an orbital bone fracture.
Speaking on the WrestleTalk Podcast, Kingston took more shots at Jericho, and his failures as leader of the Inner Circle, a stable that features Kingston’s close friends Santana and Ortiz:
“Santana and Ortiz are a great team, why aren’t they World Tag Team Champions?” Started Kingston. “Why haven’t they gotten shots? You know why. I love those boys to death but I get it, why only Sammy [Guevara]? Jake Hager is an MMA fighter, why is he not going for the World Championship? Because they all have to play second fiddle to Chris [Jericho].
“The only one is Sammy because he and Sammy have this… I don’t know if he sees something in Sammy that he was when he was the ‘Lionheart’ or a ‘Thrillseeker’ or whatever, you know what I mean, maybe he was a d******* too, like Sammy is, but that’s the thing. And it’s the truth, I speak my truth, take it or leave it. I don’t like Chris, I think Chris is a carny. There you go. Period.”
