Eddie Kingston is facing Jon Moxley at AEW Full Gear and he’s the man that should take the AEW title from Jon Moxley.

When Eddie Kingston appeared in All Elite Wrestling back in July fans immediately begged the organization to sign him. AEW responded in kind by signing the Mad King. That signing has become the best free agent pickup since COVID-19 hampered the entire industry. Some may cry become Kingston’s win-loss record is not up to par but come AEW Full Gear he should be the man to take that title from Jon Moxley after the brawl to end all brawls.

Being a part of AEW is the perfect home for Kingston. He does not need to put on the barn burner type of matches that fans will get from Kenny Omega, Rey Fenix, or PAC. But what he can do is offer a level of believe-ability that hooks fans, especially the hardcore wrestling fans that power AEW to strong rankings week after week.

Every time Kingston has the microphone in his hands he comes off as someone who is a threat to anyone on the roster; moments away from snapping and attacking. That is the perfect type of foil for Moxley. Up until now, Moxley has found a way to be more violent than all his opponents. It is that escalation that has helped him have one of the best title runs in recent North American wrestling. But for every bit of violent maniac willing to do anything needed to keep the AEW title that Moxley exudes, Kingston gives off a bit more as a mad king looking to take the belt.

Think back to the unsanctioned match that Omega and Moxley had back in November of 2019. The brutality of this match left everyone aghast when it ended. Moxley versus Kingston does not need to go to the same levels, but there is still an opportunity to create memorable moments of violence that will keep everyone talking about this match for the rest of 2020. If Kingston’s performance against Cody is an example of what lengths he’s willing to go to in order to gain a title, Moxley should be concerned when it’s time for him to face the same man for that biggest title in the company.

AEW has to keep us from changing the channel. dark. Next

Look back across Eddie Kingston’s career. He has never been the champion of a major organization. He has been the face of multiple independent organizations, building a legacy there that helped carry him to this point. Now is the time to see him hold a major title on a televised organization such as AEW. To do so, he must go through Jon Moxley, setting the stage a title change that would send some interesting shockwaves through the company.
