Eddie Kingston revealed earlier today that he’s tested positive for Covid, and will have to miss New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Strong tapings because of it:
So here we go, got covid won't be able to make Strong this weekend. It fucking sucks going to test again to see if I can make tv this week.— Eddie Kingston #BlackLivesMatter (@MadKing1981) September 10, 2022
Kingston was going to be teaming up with Homicide and Wheeler Yuta for a six-man tag team match against Jay White & The Good Brothers.
White, of course, made sure to comment on the matter in a way you would expect him to:
His best bud must have told him about me. https://t.co/2sIg5D5Q5w— Switchblade Jay White (@JayWhiteNZ) September 10, 2022
Kingston mentioned hoping he can “make TV this week” but AEW never announced any plans for him for either Dynamite or Rampage. That doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be working the shows, of course, just that they have plenty of wiggle room should they need it, at least as far as avoiding any issues with previously announced segments.
He was last seen beating Tomohiro Ishii on the Zero Hour show prior to the All Out pay-per-view this past Sunday night in Chicago.
