What's the story?

Eddie Kingston posted on his Twitter account earlier today that he is no longer with Global Force Wrestling. Take a look at his tweet below:

In case you didn't know...

Kingston made his pro wrestling debut in 2002 with Chikara through their Wrestle Factory. He spent most of his career with Chikara but has also wrestled for Combat Zone Wrestling, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla, and Ring Of Honor.

The heart of the matter...

Kingston's stay with the company was a short one as he made his debut with (then) Impact Wrestling in October 2016 as part of the Death Crew Council or DCC with James Storm and Bram. They would attack several of Impact Wrestling's tag teams right off the bat such as The Tribunal, The BroMans, and The Broken Hardy's.

While the stable was heavily used over the first few months of its existence, the appearances were more sporadic starting in February of this year. The final appearance for the DCC was February 9th before they disbanded in April.

Kingston returned this past August for the 20-man Gauntlet for the Gold Match for the vacated GFW World Heavyweight Championship but fell short as Eli Drake was the winner.

What's next?

It is unknown what is next for Kingston, but one can assume that the door is open for his return to Chikara or even Ring Of Honor. The expectation is that he'll continue to wrestle in the indies.

Author's take

Between the saga with the Hardy's, Jeff Jarrett taking an indefinite leave of absence, rumours of Anthem wanting to sell and get out of pro wrestling, and a large number of wrestlers who have left the company, it just doesn't look good for Global Force Wrestling.

I could only imagine how different things would be if Billy Corgan was able to buy and take over the company.
