In a recent Q&A with Pro Wrestling Junkies, Eddie Kingston discussed Samoa Joe’s NXT return, a potential match with Aleister Black in AEW, and much more. Here are some of the highlights (via Fightful):

Eddie Kingston on what WWE releases he’d like to see in AEW: “I don’t watch the other product. I stopped watching religiously years ago. I only watch the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania. The dudes I know from the Indies that signed there, that’s good for them. I don’t watch that product or know who would be a good fit. That’s not me being disrespectful, I just have to worry about me and AEW. I’m not looking over there. I feel that’s when you mess yourself up, when you’re looking at the competition and not worrying about yourself. We’re not like them.”

On Samoa Joe’s NXT return and wanting to fight Aleister Black: “One dude I do know, who I have known for years, is Aleister Black. We never got to fight each other. I would love to fight him, Out of respect, I would love to fight him. Of course, I wanted Joe to come. I’ve fought Joe before but Joe is my man. I know Joe and respect Joe. I’m so happy for him and I hope he’s getting that good cheddar and getting that bank. Of course, I wanted to fight Joe. When I first fought Joe, I came back from ankle surgery and was moving a little slow. All the other times I fought Joe, they were fun. I wanted to do it on TNT or TBS. On some type of national television. I respect Joe, that’s my man.”
