Here are some highlights:
Eddie Kingston talked about his WWE tryout: “This was at the PC, Jimmy Jacobs hooked me up with it. He said, ‘You want a tryout?’ I said, ‘Yes, sure, let’s go.’ To me, that tryout was more for the Mae Young Classic because it was the biggest class they had for females. I was like, alright, I get it. This was for females so I went in and had fun. They had someone filming and they asked, ‘King, tell them how hard this drill is?’ I said, ‘It was hard. I’ve had people shoot at me and try to stab me with knives and God, I hate this drill more than that.’ They put the camera down and everyone looked at me like I was nuts because I said guns and knives. I remember I was doing the promo class and I said, ‘Where I come from, they believe in Tupac more than Santa Claus.’ I saw two writers have this confused look on their face when I said it. I went, oh yea, I’m done. Let me just go have my match and I’ll leave.”
Eddie Kingston talked about rumors of him retiring at one point: “I’ll tell you the retirement story. I saw something on the other side that bothered me so much that I was drinking a lot of whiskey that night. I saw something on the TV that chapped my a*s a little bit as you can say. I could be a violent person, so I was breaking things in my house after a couple drinks. I said I never wanted to feel like that again so I think it’s time for me to go if something crazy doesn’t happen. Something crazy did happen. My brother had a kid and my brother said, ‘How can I tell my son not to quit on anything when his uncle did?’ He said it to me when I was leaving and I was giving him the finger the whole time I was leaving. That’s why I stayed.”
Kingston was asked what else he wants to accomplish in wrestling: “Tanahashi is number one. Stone Cold Steve Austin is my favorite American wrestler. So, to me, Tanahashi is Stone Cold Steve Austin of New Japan. He saved that company. I want to step into an All Japan Pro Wrestling ring because I loved All Japan Pro Wrestling in the ‘90s with the four pillars, Misawa, Taue, Kawada, and my personal favorite of all time, Kenta Kobashi. But I need this. It’s not even a want. I need me vs Jun Akiyama. That would be the cap on everything.”
