What’s Known Regarding Eddie Kingston’s Injury Status Following His Scary Guardrail Bump (w/Video)

During Saturday night’s NJPW Strong Resurgence pay-per-view, Eddie Kingston engaged in a fierce battle, ultimately losing his Openweight Title to Gabe Kidd. However, while fans loved the match, focus quickly shifted to his well-being as Kingston’s legs clearly collided with the guardrail during the finish, preventing him from beating the ten-count.

And now, Fightful Select has reported that the AEW star required assistance and was seen limping badly backstage. Still, the severity of his injury and its potential impact on his immediate future remains uncertain, leaving fans anxiously awaiting further updates.

“Kingston needed assistance after that, but was able to walk with a bad limp backstage following the match. We’re have no idea of the severity, but for those asking, Kingston was battling a legit injury following the match.”

42-year-old Kingston broke into the business in 2002 and soon became a leading independent wrestler. Yet, up until signing with AEW, he never managed to fulfill his potential, and at one point, he even considered selling his boots and quitting the business. Thankfully, Tony Khan would give him an opportunity in AEW, and over the past four years, he has shown the world what he is capable of, although it does now appear he could be set for an extended spell on the sidelines.
