Eddie Kingston: Sorry About Your Face



The amazingly awesome Eddie Kingston got his nose ruined at this past weekend's CZW event and has been pulled off of immediate future bookings, including this weekend's CHIKARA shows.  www.chikarafans.com explains:

In other news, it’s official that Eddie Kingston is out for this weekend’s “Cibernetico Incredible” event in Philly, where he was scheduled to take on Big Japan’s Ryuichi Kawakami. Kingston was on the receiving end of some hellacious blows from Sami Callihan this past weekend at CZW’s “Severed Ties”, which left him with a horribly broken nose. CHIKARA reported on Twitter that King is headed under the knife to repair the injury, and as such, will miss out on the much anticipated matchup this weekend with Kawakami. A replacement will be selected for that match, which may or may not be announced ahead of time; King’s status for the November events is still unknown.
It's a real shame because Jesus just look at that picture.  That is not what that guy's face normally looks like.  It's also a shame because Kingston is seriously one of the top ten indie guys in the country and I was looking forward to his match this weekend against Kawakami.  Best wishes toward a speedy recovery, Eddie.
