Report: AEW Star Suffers Broken Leg

Report: AEW Star Suffers Broken Leg AEW

An update has emerged on Eddie Kingston following the star being pulled from AEW Double or Nothing, with the nature of his injury revealed.

Following Kingston’s No Rope Last Man Standing match against Gabe Kidd at NJPW Resurgence on May 11, the AEW star appeared to be limping during the post-match angle with the Young Bucks and Jack Perry.

While Kingston was originally set to team with Bryan Danielson and FTR to face the Elite at Double or Nothing 2024, it was revealed on Dynamite that Kingston had been replaced by Darby Allin for the Anarchy in the Arena match at the May 26 pay-per-view.

Per Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it is believed that Kingston suffered a broken leg.

Addressing this change, Meltzer said:

“It was a great angle to set up Anarchy in the Arena, but with Kingston suffering what was being talked about on Dynamite backstage as a broken leg although that was not confirmed it was the exact injury, obviously that changed things.

“He was limping badly after the match and they were hopeful the injury wasn’t bad enough to put him out. But on 5/13, they found out the leg was broken and had to change around Dynamite and the main event for Double or Nothing.”

Kingston recently broke his silence following his injury, which you can read more about right here.
