Eddie Kingston blasts AEW World Champion MJF in searing new interview.

Eddie Kingston MJF

Eddie Kingston has no time for MJF - and doesn't know why the 26-year-old is AEW World Champion.

Speaking on WTF with Marc Maron, Kingston called Maxwell Jacob Friedman "a real piece of sh*t", adding that MJF would likely "cry about" his comments to company chief Tony Khan.

Said Eddie (h/t Fightful):-

"He's a real piece of sh*t. I'm just going to put that out there. I don't know why he's the champion. He'll cry about it to Tony (Khan), then I'll get an email from Megha (Parekh) and HR, 'you can't be calling our world champion a piece of s**t.' Well, if he doesn't act like a piece of s**t, I won't call him that."

Maron pointed out that being that "real piece of sh*t" is part of MJF's wrestling character. Eddie continued, painting MJF as a "know-it-all":-

"Not backstage to the boys. He's a low life. He's a young kid who thinks he knows it all and he doesn't. F*ck em. I don't give a shi*. What are they gonna do, fire me? Okay. I'll work somewhere and make money."

When the podcast quotes started doing the rounds, Kingston tweeted:-


Then followed up by listing the one person he actually likes in AEW:-


In response, MJF called Kingston a "fake tough guy":-

Kingston and MJF are yet to share a ring in AEW. If this situation isn't already a work, the nature of professional wrestling means it is reasonable to expect it to eventually become one.
