Eddie Kingston has overcome a lot in his pro wrestling career and is over with the fans in AEW after making his promotional debut in July 2020, where he faced off against Cody Rhodes for the TNT Championship.

He impressed many, including AEW President Tony Khan, and signed with the company. Kingston is considered to be among the best talkers in the promotion.

Kingston was recently subjected to a lot of body-shaming by fans who believe anyone with a beer gut can’t be an athlete. Sean Waltman took to Twitter and defended Kingston:
