Bully Ray Tells AEW's Eddie Kingston "To Shut The F**k Up And Stay In His Lane"
Kingston hit out at WWE in a promo last week
Bully Ray has hit out at All Elite Wrestling's Eddie Kingston for taking aim at WWE in a promo after last week's AEW Dynamite.
Kingston took to the mic at Daily's Place last week as AEW Dynamite went off the air, telling the crowd in attendance that, unlike WWE, AEW loves professional wrestling and will listen to the fans.
However, Ray, who prefaced his criticism by hailing Kingston as one of the best promos in the game, believes the 39-year-old doesn't have the right to knock WWE in that way because he hasn't worked for the promotion.
Speaking on Tuesday’s episode of Busted Open Radio, Ray said: "I love Eddie Kingston to death. If we were having promo wars and I was the captain of the team, and somebody says, ‘you get to pick one person to do the promo for you,’ I’d most likely pick Eddie – because of his believability, tone, inflection and everything about him.
“But in this case, Eddie needs to shut the f**k up and stay in his lane. And his lane is [of] an AEW guy speaking about AEW, and flying the flag for AEW. Then, I’m completely onboard. Tell me how great AEW is, fly the flag for your company, show me that you wear your heart on your sleeve.
“You were indie guy for the majority of his career until this company [AEW] took a chance on you. You’ve learned to love it and everything about it. Don’t take the easy way out and knock the WWE. If Cody wants to destroy a throne, I get it. If Jericho wants to say FU, I get it. But, Eddie? Why? There’s no reason for him to say [such stuff].
“If you go back and listen to the fans, they really didn’t pop that hard when he took a jab at WWE. You didn’t get the reaction you were looking for. People were most likely thinking, ‘alright, Eddie, stay away from that… there’s no reason to go there.'"
