Eddie Kingston Attended His WWE Tryout With A ‘F**k It’ Attitude



In a recent appearance on the “Inside the Ropes” podcast, AEW Continental Classic Champion Eddie Kingston recalled his 2017 WWE tryout.

Kingston revealed that the opportunity came when WWE prepared for the Mae Young Classic in July 2017.

The Mad King was offered a coaching position at the WWE Performance Center but declined it, as he didn’t want to be a “gatekeeper” to people he didn’t know.

Kingston said, “A friend of mine hooked me up with it because he believed in me. But I went there with this attitude of ‘Whatever, f**k it. I don’t really care.’ I didn’t really care, I was like ‘they’re not looking at me anyway.'”

He continued, “As soon as they saw me say hello to Kevin Owens and he gave me a hug, and a couple of other people that were there, next thing you know the next day everybody was my friend.”
