Here’s what happened with Eddie Kingston following the taping for the September 24 edition of AEW Rampage Grand Slam.
During the final moments of Rampage, Kingston and Jon Moxley defeated Minoru Suzuki and Lance Archer in a Light’s Out tag match. After the show went off the air, Kingston cut a passionate promo, addressing the historic Arthur Ashe Stadium crowd.
During his speech, Kingston stated that New York is now an AEW territory, saying:
“Before certain people got here we sold this mother out, and we put our flag down in New York in dirt. But with those people (CM Punk, Bryan Danielson) that just joined us, we’ve retook our flag and put it in cement. New York is now AEW’s town!”
Footage of Kingston’s promo was shared on Twitter:

The attendance for the AEW Grand Slam shows exceeded 20,000 fans, making it the most attended non-WWE pro wrestling event in North America since July 5, 1999, when WCW held a Nitro episode in the Georgia Dome.
