The Q&A with AdFreeShows.com was a great chance for Eddie Kingston to talk about the current situation in the wrestlig scene and make a comparison. Namely, Kingston believes that many things have changed. Kingston's biggest complaint is that everything is now exposed.

Because of this, the 'charm' of wrestling disappears. “I think that the business is going backwards in a sense of you guys, the fans, you know everything already. You know the magic. You know there’s bookers. It’s all been exposed for years now.

And I was a fan at that time when it was being exposed, and I was so into it because we had never seen that before. I remember ECW they were talking shit about WCW, and WCW was talking shit about WWF or whatever. And I had never seen that before because when I grew up in the ’80s and early ’90s, they did not talk.

Not the big companies. Maybe the lower territories that I wasn’t getting, but the big companies never did. So everything got exposed. Cool, you know everything now. I believe people are done with it. People don’t want to hear us on Twitter bitching and moaning about what’s going on backstage.

People don’t want to know how much fun I had with my opponent that night in the ring. I believe they want to see that, no, we still don’t like each other. They want to be lost. ”- Kingston said, as quoted by pwmania.com!

Eddie Kingston on today's feuds

Social media has changed a lot. Most have access to the lives of popular wrestlers and create a different image than the one we used to have. Kingston gave a great example to describe this; “And I put it in this sense: the Marvel movies, whether they’re good or bad.

There’s been a lot of bad lately, right? They still make millions to billions of dollars. Now imagine, and I’ll use this example. Imagine if Captain America stopped in the middle of the f**king movie and said hey man, I didn’t really kick that guy’s ass.

We’re actually going to go out later. I respect to shit out of him. He’s the stuntman. And then they will go, okay, back to the action. It would ruin it. So I believe now people want to go back to, I guess you can say, the kayfabe days.

You know what I mean? And the reason why I kind of believe that too is I’m not gonna put over Chris Jericho. People are like, how was your feud? What do you mean? I hated him for seven months. It was the worst time of my life”.
