Eddie Kingston On His Issues With CM Punk And More



Eddie Kingston has always been a fan favorite wherever he’s gone because he is not afraid to speak his mind. The Mad King has been open about his dislike for several wrestlers, like Chris Jericho and CM Punk.

Speaking honestly with Busted Open Radio ahead of his appearance at All Out, Kingston talked about his known issues with the likes of Punk, Jericho, Bryan Danielson and Claudio Castagnoli. He explained how he will be open about the guys he doesn’t like, but doesn’t feel like the fans need to know all the details on why.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On fans liking him when he’s open about who he dislikes: “Because they probably feel the same way, I don’t know. I’m just able to say it, you know what I mean? It’s just the way I’ve always been raised, you know? If I don’t like you, just don’t mess with me. It seems like people like to mess with me when I don’t like them. I don’t look for trouble, but trouble finds me; that’s the way I like to put it. And I just don’t have any problem not going after trouble. If it’s there, it’s there; if it’s not, [it’s not].”

On his tweet about Punk talking about him when Kingston wasn’t at Dynamite: “Well, that’s Phil’s MO, you know what I mean? Like, let’s just call it like it is. That’s Punk’s MO. My man’s got a Punk shirt there, God bless you, I’m happy you’re a fan of his. I’m not. He’s a b*tch, but God bless you.”

“But no, Punk’s not a good dude, I can’t care what he says or does… But yeah, like, of course he’s going to talk trash when I’m not there. Or of course he’s going to talk trash when the boss is in the way… Well, I just think he likes me and he can’t get over it. [laughs] I think that maybe, maybe Phillip wants to be like me. Maybe Phillip wants to be loved like me, I don’t know.”

On his outspoken comments about AEW stars: “People think a lot of the stuff that I do is a work, or whatever they want to call it. Because everybody likes using insider terms and everybody loves to be in the know, and all the dirt sheets and all that stuff, right? I’ll give it to you plain and simple: I don’t like Jericho, I don’t like Bryan, I don’t like Claudio, I don’t like Punk. Those are the people I don’t like in this company. There is nothing you can say or do or tell me that makes them different to me. I know who they are.”

On why he doesn’t like those guys: “I’m gonna keep that to myself because people don’t need to know inside baseball. No offense to the fans, but the curtain doesn’t have to be getting pushed back all the time.”
