Eddie Kingston Names Who He Thinks Is The Future Of AEW
The Mad King has scouted the next generation
Eddie Kingston has been a pro wrestler for a long time, and throughout his career has seen every type of wrestler, promotion, match, and locker room.
Now settled in AEW, The Mad King is able to pass on some of his wisdom to the next generation, whether he wants to or not. Talking to Bleacher Report, Kingston said:
"A lot of the young guys who come to me for advice, I tell them to go to Arn Anderson or Tully Blanchard or Jake Roberts or Billy Gunn. I give them my opinion, but I also tell them to go to these guys who know a lot more than me.”
However, Kingston does have his eye on a few talents whom he has declared the future of the company.
"Everybody knows Jungle Boy is the future of the business," Kingston said. "[Wheeler] Yuta just came in. I've known him for a minute. Brian Pillman Jr. of course, and his partner, Griff [Garrison]. A lot of guys in the Dark Order are the future, especially of AEW. I don't like the kid. What's his name? MJF? He's an a******. He hasn't messed with me yet. I have known him for a very long time and he knows how I am. I'll give the devil his due. He is definitely the future of AEW.
"You have a bunch of young, hungry guys there and in all of wrestling. Every promotion has a bunch of guys who are ready to go. I think the pandemic made these guys hungrier because they saw that everything can be taken away in a heartbeat. Wrestling is in good hands.
"My man Curt Stallion, who just got let go. When he gets his shot, he will knock it out of the park. There are so many good dudes. Joshua Bishop in AIW up in Cleveland. He's an animal. I don't want to keep naming people because I know I'm going to leave somebody out and I am going to feel bad. Charli Evans out in Australia, Marti Belle, Allysin Kay, they're great."
