Eddie Kingston Wants To Face Shingo Takagi At AEW All In Or All Out

AEW star Eddie Kingston recently spoke with the NJPW Press on a number of topics covering all things pro wrestling. During the discussion, Kingston revealed he was nervous when he saw he was paired up against Shingo Takagi at a recent NJPW G1 Climax 33 Event because Shingo is so good.

Kingston said, “I can’t believe it. Oh my God. The dream lives on folks, the dream lives on. I’m not gonna lie, when I saw I was paired up against Shingo (Takagi), former IWGP World Champion, I was so nervous. I tried to play it off like I was cool. I was so nervous, he’s so good. I’m not gonna lie and sit here, yeah, I beat his ass, because I didn’t. I’m a little disappointed in my performance. The hernia surgery that I had before the tour in Japan started acting up after he gave me a knee to the gut. Holy — ouuu wow, it’s a lot of pain. No excuses though. I won, but I got lucky. I’m gonna have to do better against EVIL, that’s all I can say.”

Kingston also spoke about how he hopes to face Shingo Takagi once against at AEW All Out or All In.

“Shingo, I’m not gonna talk a lot of trash and try to sell tickets. This is a sport so I’m gonna treat it like a sport. Thank you for the fight and I hope we do it again. I’m praying, Tony Khan, I’ll put you on the spot. Me and Shingo, All In or All Out… give us time. Me and Shingo will show the world strong style, King’s Road combined. Thank you Shingo. EVIL, ah, I gotta do better.”
