AEW superstar Eddie Kingston recently spoke with Bleacher report for Suicide Awareness Month, where the Mad King covered a ton of different topics, including his thoughts on the ongoing Malakai Black situation within AEW. Highlights from the interview are below.
Says no matter what, he sees big things for Malakai Black:
“Well, first of all, I see him doing great things. I’ve known Malakai for about 15 years, maybe more. I don’t know. Yes, I first met him when I was on tour in Germany. He becomes a star when he is ready and when he wants to. And I wish him nothing but the best and I wish him all the happiness in the world, him and his wife [Zelina Vega of WWE]because I know them as people.
Know that he will come out on the other side of his current mental health battle:
“I don’t know them as just artists or whatever, or professional wrestlers, but as a person I know him and he’ll be fine. And I know that and he has a good support system around him.”
