Eddie Kingston took several shots at WWE last Saturday night after AEW Dynamite went off the air.
WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray talked about this on Tuesday’s Busted Open Radio. He had a problem with Kingston taking shots at WWE because Kingston hasn’t worked for WWE in the past and thus, shouldn’t have a problem with them.
“I love Eddie Kingston to death. If we were having promo wars and I was the captain of the team, and somebody says, ‘you get to pick one person to do the promo for you,’ I’d most likely pick Eddie – because of his believability, tone, inflection and everything about him. But in this case, Eddie needs to shut the f–k up and stay in his lane. And his lane is [of] an AEW guy speaking about AEW, and flying the flag for AEW. Then, I’m completely onboard. Tell me how great AEW is, fly the flag for your company, show me that you wear your heart on your sleeve.
You were indie guy for the majority of his career until this company [AEW] took a chance on you. You’ve learned to love it and everything about it. Don’t take the easy way out and knock the WWE. If you go back and listen to the fans, they really didn’t pop that hard when he took a jab at WWE,” Ray said. “You didn’t get the reaction you were looking for. People were most likely thinking, ‘alright, Eddie, stay away from that… there’s no reason to go there.’
If Cody wants to destroy a throne, I get it. If Jericho wants to say FU, I get it. But, Eddie? Why? There’s no reason for him to say [such stuff].”
