After calling out AEW Superstar Eddie Kingston for a match at this Sunday night’s ‘The WRLD on GCW’ event, AJ Gray has now explained exactly why he chose Kingston.
Speaking to Wrestling Inc, Gray said the following,
“Because, I mean, s**t I’m trying to pick the baddest of the bad motherf**king toughest of the tough. It was a respect thing until he started talking all this s**t on his interviews.”
Gray and Kingston have both been members of the Second Gear Crew Faction, and Gray had this to say on the matter,
“Well, for three straight years we were always on the road together. Well, not three, I’d say about two straight. We seeing each other at every show, every time we’d go out. That’s why SGC got formed. Even though I wanted to kick some ass that night, but hey, no harm, no foul. I mean, he’s the one that walked away from everything, s**t, I don’t know.”
Unfortunately, it looks like that despite Kingston saying he would face AJ Gray if AEW approved it, the match is unlikely to happen. This is due to Kingston being announced as out with an injury for the next few weeks by Tony Khan.
