Eddie Kingston Suffering From Lower Back Injury
Eddie Kingston is hurting
AEW star Eddie Kingston will not be taking any independent dates for the time being, as he deals with a lower back injury.
Announcing the decision via his Instagram page, 'The Mad King' wrote:
"Due to being NJPW Strong Openweight And ROH Champion I have to come to the hard decision that I will have to stop doing Independents. Dealing with a lower back injury right now that I need to get fixed (and will) so I can be ready for all NJPW strong shows and all three AEW shows. When my responsibilities as NJPW and ROH champion is over I will hopefully be able to do Independents again. I apologise to all but I just need to focus and my body needs to be ready for those shows."
Kingston beat Claudio Castagnoli to bag the ROH World Title on the September 20 Grand Slam III edition of AEW Dynamite. The 41-year-old dedicated the win to former ROH World Champion Xavier, who passed away in 2020.
Kingston credited his hometown New York crowd for making his title triumph even more special.
