That explains a bit. There are all kinds of reasons for a wrestler to be out of action and one of the most common is an injury. You never know when someone is going to go on he shelf and it can keep them away from the ring for quite awhile. Occasionally you will see a promotion do something to hide the injury but now we know about another wrestler who needs some time off.
Defy Wrestling has announced that AEW’s Eddie Kingston is injured and was forced out of his scheduled match on Saturday. F4WOnline.com is reporting that Kingston suffered the injury last Wednesday, though there is no word on what happened. Kingston did not appear live on either AEW show this week. He has not wrestled since the Jay Briscoe tribute show on January 18.
[ BREAKING ]

Kingston has been pretty awesome in AEW. Check out what he has done there:
Opinion: Hopefully Kingston bounces back quickly as he is one of the most interesting stars in all of AEW. He knows how to draw a crowd into a frenzy with mere words and that is the kind of thing that so many wrestlers would love to be able to do. Kingston has come so far in AEW and it could be fascinating to see just how far he can go after a pretty great career before he arrived.
What do you think of Kingston? How far can he go in AEW? Let us know in the comments below.
