Is Eddie Kingston AEW's version of Dusty Rhodes?
All Elite Wrestling's own Dax Harwood believes he is!
During the latest recording of the FTR Podcast, Harwood shared the following statement about Kingston:
“I think Eddie is our version of Dusty Rhodes. The common man who can talk better than anybody else in the business, and make people feel a certain way. Doesn’t matter what situations he is put in, he still makes the people feel a certain way about what he’s doing. That is a very rare commodity, quality, in your arsenal. He makes people care because what he says, he believes. When he fights, he believes that too.”
Dax also reflected on Eddie's Full Gear 2020 match, telling listeners:
“Eddie went from someone who was well-known and well-respected in independent wrestling, but obviously independent wrestling’s not the most lucrative job in the world, to landing a spot [in the main event of a PPV]. I remember him after this main event being so emotional, and so proud of himself, for being in the main event of a Pay-Per-View. And he deserved it. He deserved to be proud. He had worked to get there.”
