As noted earlier, Northeast Wrestling announced that Eddie Kingston had to pull out of The Big Event convention in New York due to an injury. It was noted that he suffered a shoulder injury during his match with CM Punk. Kingston already had his shoulder taped up before the match so the match may have aggravated a nagging injury.
The morning statement from Northeast Wrestling stated:
"Due to a shoulder injury suffered in his match last night with CM Punk, @MadKing1981 will not be appearing today for @newwrestling1 at @bigeventny wrestling convention in Queens, NY. He will be undergoing some medical tests this am. Refunds for preorders will go out later 2day."
On Facebook, Northeast Wrestling issued this statement on Kingston:
"Eddie Kingston contacted us late last night. Due to an injury to his shoulder in his match with CM Punk last night at the AEW PPV, he will be unable to appear at Big Event NY Convention today. He is having his shoulder checked out and having a series of medical tests this morning.
If you preordered any of his meet and greet items you will be refunded later today. Sorry for the inconvenience"
It was also announced to fans that Malakai Black also pulled out of The Big Event. There is no word on the nature of his injury.
