In Another Universe, Eddie Kingston Is Wrestling for the Interim AEW Championship Tonight

November 13, 2021: Eddie Kingston loses a grudge match to CM Punk at Full Gear. Punk, his battered face veiled in blood, stretches his hand out to Eddie—offering him the respect he’s denied Kingston for so long. Eddie doesn’t take it. He turns and sulks off, so bitter at his…

In Failure, Eddie Kingston Is the Wrestler of the Year

I have abandoned a half dozen attempts at writing about Eddie Kingston. In theory, I gave myself an easy assignment. Eddie Kingston was the best wrestler of 2021. He was the best in the ring. He was the best on the microphone. I know those things are true, but I’m…

78 Degrees of Wrestling: The Major Arcana of AEW (Part III: The Soul of Reason)

XV. The Devil: MJF Another obvious corollary; is there any figure in AEW more contemptible than Maxwell Jacob Friedman? And yet, there are many captivated by his spell. For starters, I must begrudgingly admit he’s a good pro wrestler—so good to the point where there are actually people out there…

On Eddie Kingston, CM Punk, and Whether People Can Really Change

“You think you’re going to begin your life over and do it right, but what if you never get past the beginning again?” — Pete Campbell, Mad Men (“New Business,” 2015) If you’re the type of person who believes people are incapable of change, you knew it was only a…

11 Years Apart, Bryan Danielson and Eddie Kingston Dropped a Pair of Bangers

For some reason, this is a match that was never really supposed to happen. It’s strange to think about considering how both Bryan Danielson and Eddie Kingston are emblematic of the 2000s super indie boom that came to define the direction of North American pro wrestling down the line. Even…

At Arthur Ashe Stadium, Is Wrestling Fandom a Community?

The Eternal Heartbreak of Hard Times

There’s probably nothing new that can be said about “Hard Times,” the 1985 Dusty Rhodes promo that defines its feud, its performer, and its time. It’s huge, y’all, so big that it has a name, which isn’t true of many promos. You say “Hard Times” to a wrestling fan and…
