Eddie Kingston: If It Wasn't For Chris Jericho, Santana & Ortiz Would Be AEW Tag Champs By Now
Kingston is close friends with The Proud & Powerful
In recent weeks, issues have started to develop between Eddie Kingston and Chris Jericho on AEW TV, with The Proud & Powerful (Santana and Ortiz) stuck in the middle.
Although part of Jericho’s Inner Circle, P&P are very close with Kingston, with the three teaming together in AEW, as well as working together in the past in places such as IMPACT and PROGRESS. On a recent edition of The Battleground podcast, Kingston gave his thoughts on Jericho’s guidance of P&P:
"If I had my way… there are a lot of things going on with Garcia and 2point0 and now Jericho is sticking his nose in my business. I love PNP, those are my boys for years, I love them both to death. I don't like it that they are with Jericho and never did. Whatever, we all have to make money. I have my own opinion on Jericho. I don't want his help, I don't need his help. He's helping out PNP, but are they world tag team champions? No because they are busy dealing with Jericho's beef. You can put this on clickbait, clickbait the shit out of this, if it wasn't for Chris Jericho and his beef with random people, Proud N Powerful would be world tag team champions. I'm saying it now. If Jericho don't like it, come see me in Raleigh, I'll be there. Jericho is not the guy from Smokey Mountain, he's not the guy from New Japan. Don't come at me and try to help me. I don't want your help. Go help PNP get a world tag title shot instead of worrying about yourself. Clickbait it.”
It looks like there may be a Kingston/Jericho match sometime in the near future if things keep going the way they are.
