Eddie Kingston addresses his “nobody wants you here” promo directed at CM Punk

During an interview with Adrian Hernandez, Eddie Kingston addressed his “nobody wants you here” promo directed at CM Punk from the November 5th 2021 edition of AEW Rampage…

“It doesn’t bother me because I don’t care, you know what I mean? Like, I have a job to do, and my job is to make people talk about us. And if I didn’t do a good enough job where they want to talk about backstage stuff, then that’s on me. I’ll just do better next time, you know what I mean? And like I said in an interview before, there was no locker room divide like it was reported because I don’t really hang out with a lot of people. I have like 4 or 5 people I chill within the locker room, and those 4 or 5 people didn’t give a shit about what was going on. You know, we were in our own world because we had to go to work and that’s it. But, you know, people are going to talk about the drama because people love drama, man. That’s why we have those kind of movies and all that, you know what I mean? They love it. But it’s our job to go out there and produce to make them forget that. And I think we are. But if people still want to talk about it, that’s on them, not on me.”

“I’m doing my job. And that’s how I felt, you know what I mean? I didn’t know what anyone else in the locker room felt. I didn’t care. That’s how I felt. I didn’t want him there, you know? I mean, me and Punk don’t like each other, and that’s fine. You’re not going to like everybody you work with, you know what I mean? Do I wish he was still in AEW? And I wish it worked out differently? Yeah, because he helped the company. But other than that, I don’t give a f**k what he does. You know what I mean? Because me and him never got along anyway. No, we don’t have to be best friends to fight each other. It makes it better when we’re not best friends. You know, when we have to fight each other. I don’t wish him bad, but I don’t wish him good either because I don’t give a f**k. That’s it.” (quotes courtesy of WrestlingNews.co)
