Major AEW favourite Eddie Kingston has penned a deal to remain with Tony Khan's promotion for the foreseeable future.

Speaking on AdFreeShows (via in an interview recorded prior to last week's AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam, Kingston revealed that he has at some point signed a four-year contract extension. However, Eddie didn't specify when this deal was signed.


As the Mad King detailed:

"If you noticed, you haven't heard anything about me with contracts because I did my sh*t on the low. My thing was coming up. I got four more years, so I'm straight. No one needs to know know how much [money], no one needs to know how long. I got my f**king sh*t in. I got my sh*t in and I'm gonna be there for a minute, because there's nowhere else I want to be."

Eddie Kingston has been with AEW since the summer of 2020, formally signing with the promotion shortly after debuting against Cody Rhodes as part of the American Nightmare's weekly 'open challenge' for the TNT Title he held at that time.


More recently, Eddie won the ROH World Championship on the aforementioned Dynamite: Grand Slam, defeating long-time rival Claudio Castagnoli to win that prize. Of course, that match also had Kingston's NJPW STRONG Openweight Title on the line; a title which he defeated KENTA for this past July.

Up next for Eddie is a match against the legendary Katsuyori Shibata at AEW WrestleDream this coming Sunday. There, Kingston will defend both of his titles against the current ROH Pure Champion; with Shibata's belt not on the line in this bout.
