Eddie Kingston Returns To AEW Dynamite, Sides With Elite In opposition to Blackpool Fight Membership


This week’s “AEW Dynamite” led to full chaos, as the principle occasion trios match between The Elite and the Blackpool Fight Membership descended right into a parade of shock assaults. Along with the renewal of hostilities between The Elite and the traitorous Konosuke Takeshita, to not point out upcoming AEW x NJPW Forbidden Door opponents Kenny Omega and Will Ospreay, the phase additionally featured the return of Eddie Kingston — who hasn’t wrestled on “Dynamite” in additional than three months and hasn’t wrestled in any respect since ROH Supercard of Honor in April — who renewed his personal hostilities with perennial nemesis Claudio Castagnoli.

After “quitting” AEW again in March, Kingston grew to become a mainstay of Tony Khan’s new on-line Ring of Honor present, which led to him difficult Castagnoli for the ROH World Championship at Supercard of Honor.

If that is the case, it is fortuitous timing, because the final two summers round this time have seen AEW pit groups of 5 towards each other in a “Blood and Guts” match. Final yr, satirically, Kingston was in that match on the facet of the BCC, although the end foreshadowed the concept that the long-standing rivalry between Kingston and Castagnoli was removed from over.
