Our series of Chikara interviews continues with Eddie Kingston, who talks about his experiences as a professional wrestler. Regarded as “the last of a dying breed,” Kingston is a veteran of Chikara, and has been in some of the most important matches in the company’s history. Here, he talks about his first foray into wrestling, his upcoming trip to Japan for Osaka Pro Wrestling, the late Larry Sweeney, the longtime rivalry with Chris Hero, and more. While vicious in the ring, Eddie Kingston comes across as a pretty cool guy. You definitely don’t want to get on his bad side though. Unless you want a spinning back fist to the face.
At the upcoming Young Lions Cup, Eddie Kingston teams up with Mike Quackenbush and Fire Ant as they take on Claudio Castagnoli, Vin Gerard and Icarus. For your chance to win two free tickets for the first night of the tournament on August 27th, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
