While speaking with Fightful this week, Eddie Kingston explained why he still works independent wrestling shows.
“For me, money has never been a factor. If I had done this for money, I would have been out two years later,” Kingston said.
“It’s fun. I like to give back to the independents because for so long I was in the independents and they kept me fed, so I like to give back in certain places. I try to do good to the people who did good to me,” he continued.
“That’s why you’ll see me at DEFY, or the next thing you’ll see me at Glory Pro. Like, ‘Why is he in Glory Pro?’ Those guys are good people to me. Same with AAW and AIW. I just try to go to the people who were good to me and try to give back now.”
