Update on Eddie Kingston’s Injury: Delayed Surgery Pushes Back AEW Return to 202

One Big Thing

Eddie Kingston’s return to AEW will be delayed until approximately May 2025 due to a tibular fracture suffered during a match at New Japan Resurgence. The injury requires surgery, but doctors have advised waiting until July to allow the fracture to heal properly before proceeding.

Key Points

  • Kingston suffered the injury while wrestling Gabe Kidd, with his leg striking the guardrail during a suplex through a table.
  • Initial plans for surgery have been postponed to give the fracture time to heal.
  • Following surgery, Kingston will require at least ten months of recovery before returning to in-ring action.
  • Despite the setback, Kingston holds no ill will towards Kidd or anyone else, stating, “[I’m] not mad. It’s what happens when you wrestle. Just gotta get f*****g better.”

Why It Matters

The extended absence of Eddie Kingston is a significant blow to AEW’s roster. As a former AEW Continental Champion and a key figure in the company’s storylines, Kingston’s presence will be sorely missed. His injury also forces AEW to alter their plans for the foreseeable future, particularly in light of the upcoming Anarchy in the Arena match at Double or Nothing, where Kingston was set to team up with Bryan Danielson and FTR against The Elite.

The Road Ahead

While Eddie Kingston focuses on his recovery, AEW will need to adapt and find new ways to engage fans and create compelling storylines. The company has a deep roster of talented performers who can step up in Kingston’s absence, but his unique character and in-ring presence will be difficult to replace.

As Kingston undergoes physical therapy and prepares for surgery, fans will eagerly await updates on his progress and eventual return to the ring. Until then, the wrestling world will continue to support him and wish him a speedy recovery.
