AJ Gray issued the challenge and Eddie Kingston responds.
Next weekend, Game Changer Wrestling is presenting ‘The WRLD on GCW’ from Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. AEW’s Eddie Kingston was announced for the event several months ago and recently, GCW uploaded a video to their digital channels of AJ Gray issuing a challenge to Kingston for the event.
Kingston was a guest on the Battleground Podcast and he reacted to AJ’s challenge. He said he has to check in with AEW and also make sure that he’s medically cleared. If Kingston is given the greenlight, he said he’ll be present to address AJ face-to-face.
Yeah, that’s fine Justice. I started it. We were the original three, so guess what AJ? You’re welcome. So if I have my way, I will be — if I have my way, if everything’s good, you know I gotta get medically cleared and all that good stuff. If everything’s good, I’ll be there at Hammerstein. I’ll be there and then I’ll smack the sh*t out of AJ. I’m the wrong one to call out because I’m still the same guy. I’m the wrong one to call out. Money don’t change me man.
"GIVE ME THE MAD KING…"

Earlier in the conversation, Kingston spoke highly of The Hex (Allysin Kay & Marti Belle) who are good friends of his. He joked that if he was booking AEW, they would be signed and so would Homicide and added that by the time he’d be done with AEW, it’d look like Rikers Island.
They’re my friends , I love them to death and I would love to see them in an AEW ring but again, you know what I tell people when things are going down and they wonder why certain things ain’t happening or certain people ain’t there? You know what I tell them? ‘Not my show bro.’ I don’t book it, it’s not my show.
And you gotta do what’s right for the company and the guy in charge, if he feels like it, sure. If I had my way, they would be there, Homicide would be there. I joke with a lot of people, if I was booking AEW, it’d look like Rikers Island by the time I’m done with it.
The night prior to GCW’s Hammerstein show, the inaugural Indie Wrestling Hall of Fame ceremony is taking place and it was recently announced that CM Punk is doing the honors of inducting Dave Prazak.
