Eddie Kingston Says He Had A Bad Feeling About Jonathan Gresham

As previously reported, Jonathan Gresham met with AEW CEO Tony Khan, who is also ROH’s owner prior to the ROH Death Before Dishonor PPV and revealed the frustrations he has been having, mainly due to the fact that Khan has been having lack of communication with him and how he felt disrespected because of that. Gresham reportedly also “cussed out” Khan before asking for his release after Gresham found out that he will be dropping the title and the ROH World Championship Match would not be given much time. The opening matchup of the ROH Death Before Dishonor PPV saw Claudio Castagnoli beat Jonathan Gresham to become the new ROH World Champion.

AEW Star Eddie Kingston recently appeared on the “Highspots Superstore” fan signing and revealed that he has had a bad feeling about Jonathan Gresham and how the former ROH World Champion rubs him in the wrong way, but Eddie didn’t specify or elaborate why exactly he feels that way about Gresham.

This is what Eddie Kingston said:

“Gresham — I don’t know, man, he just rubs me the wrong way.” “I don’t know. I just have a bad feeling.”

Gresham is not factored into any ROH or AEW creative for the foreseeable future and despite Tony Khan and Gresham’s recent conversation getting heated, no bridges were reportedly burned, but there hasn’t been any confirmation that Gresham’s release was granted or will be granted soon. Three pro wrestling promotions were reportedly interested in the former ROH World Champion before he signed with AEW/ROH, but there is no word yet on who those three companies are. Shortly after ROH’s Death Before Dishonor, word is that Gresham has decided to step away from pro wrestling for the foreseeable future, but many of Gresham’s co-workers believe he loves wrestling too much for those feelings to be permanent and he even competed at STARRCAST V during Ric Flair’s Last Match Event on July 31st.
