Eddie Kingston Discusses Growing Up A WWE Fan, Differences Between Performing On The Indies & TV


Eddie Kingston recently spoke with the Bleacher Report. Here are some of the highlights: 

Growing up in the WWF market and inspirations from the business: 

“Growing up in New York, all we had was WWF at the time because my family didn’t have cable yet. Everyone loved Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior, Macho Man and Ted DiBiase. When we got cable, I was able to see guys like Ric Flair and Dusty Rhodes. ‘Hot Stuff’ Eddie Gilbert was really the first guy to inspire me. My mom got a Memphis wrestling tape from the Bronx and I saw Gilbert and that was it. He was definitely the first guy who made me think I wanted to do this. He doesn’t get enough credit.”

The differences between performing on the indies and on TV: 

“On TV, you have commercial breaks and you are on strict time. You need to stick to your time because you don’t want to ruin anybody else’s match. Time is the biggest difference.”
