“To stand out, I’m just gonna be me so you take me for who I am. Do you know what I mean? What you see on screen is not fake. That’s who I am 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Physically, I gotta get in better shape. Do you know what I mean? And I try every day, folks. I try every day, but like being out here in North Carolina, I like a cookout. I also like Five Guys. I like food, I like Ice Cream, so I gotta work on that.
“I’m quitting smoking cigarettes. I’ve smoked cigarettes since I was 15. It’s gonna be a little rough, but I’m trying, and I’m trying because I want to be World Champion, and I also want to be a champion of AEW and I want to represent the company. I know what I have to do to step up.”
In a company like AEW, in 2022, someone with Kingston’s talent and ability should absolutely be in the running to be a world champion for the company. But if he thinks getting in better shape and quitting smoking will help him accomplish his goals, then more power to that man. As a former smoker who quit cold turkey years ago, I know it isn’t easy but nothing easy is worth having, right?
Go Eddie go.
