Eddie Kingston has signed a new AEW contract, keeping him with the company for four more years.
On the September 20 Grand Slam edition of AEW Dynamite, Eddie Kingston overcame his longtime rival Claudio Castagnoli in an emotional opening match which saw him capture the ROH World Championship while holding on to his NJPW Strong Title. Many fans were overjoyed to see The Mad King come out on top at the Arthur Ashe stadium, and it seems as if we will be seeing a lot more of Kingston in the near future.
During an interview for AdFreeShows, Eddie revealed that he has recently signed a new AEW contract which will see him stick with Tony Khan’s company for at least four more years. While on the topic, he acknowledged that his contract talks were kept quiet, but, insisted that there is nowhere he’d rather work.
“If you notice, you haven’t heard anything about me with a contract because I did my shit on the low. My thing was coming up, I got four more years. I’m straight. No one needs to know how much, no one needs to know how long. I got my fucking shit. I got my shit and I’m going to be there for a minute because there is nowhere else I want to be.”-Eddie Kingston
It’s fair to say that Eddie Kingston will certainly have a busy schedule off the back of his recent title win, having commitments on Ring of Honor, AEW, and New Japan going forward. Recently, the 41-year-old announced that he was scaling back his independent dates to accommodate his future plans.
As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on Eddie Kingston and his new AEW contract as we hear more.
