Eddie Kingston and Cesaro have a long and storied rivalry, and Eddie would like to finally settle the score once and for all in an AEW ring.

Following Cesaro’s, formerly Claudio Castagnoli, departure from the WWE, Kingston commented on the situation, saying his former Chikara rival “didn’t have the balls” to join AEW. During a conversation on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast however, he was asked if there is anyone he’s worked with previously that he still has some unfinished business with. Lars Frederiksen, the show’s co-host, clarified he wasn’t looking for any behind-the-scenes dirt, but wanted to know if there was anyone in particular Kingston was interested in having another run with.

“There’s a couple people. I wish… I know I say I don’t want him at AEW, but Claudio Castagnoli, I would love for him to be at AEW because I’d get to smack the shit out of him. We have a lot of unfinished business. Like you said, you don’t want to know the backstage stuff, that’s fine, but there’s some serious stuff between us and I would love to end it and see if he does the right thing at AEW. But again, not my show, I don’t book it.

Eddie would go on to speak about another foe whom he’d like to meet again in the ring, CM Punk.

“Definitely him, Punk definitely, at least there in AEW, so I may have another chance at that. Like you said, there’s a lot more history there to explore with Punk. I’ll get with anybody in the ring, I don’t care. The way I look at it is, you’re not going to pull out a gun, you’re not going to pull out a knife, I’m fine. I’ll be okay. I’ve had things broken before, broken bones heal, I’ll be alright. So definitely, without a shadow of a doubt, Claudio is number one and Punk is number two. But Claudio for sure because I want to end the beef we’ve had.”

Whether it’s Claudio/Cesaro, CM Punk, or anyone else for that matter, Eddie Kingston has no shortage of hatchets to bury. The question is, with his rediscovered determination to win the big matches, could these renewed rivalries cement Kingston as main event material?
