Eddie Moore is an Americanmarker professional wrestler, better known by his ring name Eddie Kingston. He is best known for competing in Chikara, Independent Wrestling Association Mid-South and for his time in Combat Zone Wrestling.

Career

Chikara

Kingston initially trained alongside "Black" Jack Marciano and Jigsaw under Kevin Knight at the Independent Wrestling Federation in Woodland Park, New Jerseymarker (formerly West Paterson). After Kingston was kicked out of the school, he became part of the second class of students to train at the Chikara Wrestle Factory, where he was taught by Mike Quackenbush. As a result, Kingston became involved in a long-running feud between Quackenbush and Chris Hero, coming to Quackenbush's defense on numerous occasions.

Kingston was a member of the Wild Cards tag team with "Black" Jack Marciano. Together, they won the IWA Mid-South Tag Team Championship and enjoyed reasonable success until a knee injury sidelined Marciano into retirement, thus disbanding the team.

For a majority of 2006, Kingston had a rivalry against Larry Sweeney. Kingston and Sweeney traded many verbal and physical exchanges for months, and the feud culminated with a No Disqualification Strap match between the two at Chikara's last show of the year. Kingston won this match and the overall feud.

In 2007, Kingston turned heel (villianous) when he was pinned in an eight-man tag team match. Following the loss, Kingston attacked Hallowicked and attempting to remove his mask. The resulting feud lasted for over six months, during which time Kingston often put a replica of Hallowicked's mask on Kingston's opponent, and defeating them. The feud ended when Kingston defeated Hallowicked in a Falls Count Anywhere match.

Kingston, along with fellow BLKOUT stable members Joker and Ruckus, went on to the finals of the 2008 King of Trios tournament, coming up short against the team of El Pantera, Incognito and Lince Dorado.

Combat Zone Wrestling

Kingston joined Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW) and was almost immediately placed in the role of enforcer and mouthpiece in the BLKOUT faction. Kingston and fellow BLKOUT member Joker won the CZW World Tag Team Championship from the Kings of Wrestling (Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli) on February 11, 2006 at Seven Years Strong: Settling The Score. Seven months later on September 9, Kingston defeated Chris Hero to win the CZW World Heavyweight Championship after an extended feud. As a result of winning the CZW World Championship, BLKOUT vacated the tag team championship, and the Kings of Wrestling won them in a tournament, but were attakced by BLKOUT afterwards. After a successful world title defence against Justice Pain at Night of Infamy 5, due to Hero interfering and accidentally hitting Pain, Kingston lost the title to Pain in a three-way elimination match, also involving Hero. Kingston was eliminated first, after suffering a legitimate broken ankle, after botching a backdrop.

At the following show, Hero challenged Kingston to a Loser Leaves Town match when he returned. In his return match at Redemption on March 10, 2007, Kingston defeated Hydra. On April 7, at Out With the Old, In With the New, Kingston defeated Hero in a Loser Leaves Town match. Following the match, CZW owner John Zandig went to the ring and publicly fired Kingston for "ongoing misconduct". This was suspected by many to be an angle, but was later found out to have been legitimate. Kingston released a public interview on YouTube discussing the matter, but the footage was removed only hours later.

Kingston did not appear in CZW for nearly a year following this, but eventually made his return at New Years Resolutions on January 12, 2008, in the main event for the CZW World Heavyweight Championship. Kingston returned to Combat Zone Wrestling on February 14, 2009 at its 10th Anniversary Show, in a losing effort to CZW World Heavyweight Champion Drake Younger in a No Rope Barbed Wire Deathmatch.

Pro Wrestling Guerrilla

On November 11, 2007, Kingston debuted in Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) as Human Tornado's mystery tag team partner. It was revealed earlier on that Tornado's opponent, Chris Hero, had also chosen Kingston as his partner, but Kingston sided with Tornado. Kingston and Tornado lost a Handicap match to Hero via a disqualification caused by Claudio Castagnoli. Post-match, the three men attacked Hero and showed signs of the forming of a new group.

Kingston and Castagnoli were involved in an feud against the Dynasty (Joey Ryan and Scott Lost), which began when they interfered in a match between the Dynasty and the Briscoe Brothers. A match for the PWG World Tag Team Championship was booked between the two teams twice in a row, but Kingston missed both shows. Soon after missing his second event, Kingston's name was removed from the roster page.

On August 30, 2008 Kingston returned to PWG for All Star Weekend VII where he competed in a four-way match for the PWG World Title on Night 1, but he was pinned by the defending champion Chris Hero. Following the match Kingston assaulted Hero and they had to be pulled apart by PWG officials. On Night 2, Kingston was defeated by the Necro Butcher.

Independent Wrestling Association Mid-South

Kingston has made on-and-off appearances for Independent Wrestling Association Mid-South since 2004. During that year, most of his activity involved tagging with Marciano as the Wild Cards. The duo won the IWA Mid-South Tag Team Championship once, and successfully defended them on numerous occasions. After Marciano's retirement, however, Kingston's Mid-South work mainly involved one-on-one matches, including a lengthy feud against Ian Rotten. He also rekindled his feud with Hero during the 2007 Ted Petty Invitational, and on the final night of the tournament, Kingston defeated Hero in a Last Man Standing match, which is considered the 2007 Match of the Year for the company.

On December 7, 2007, Kingston won a four-way elimination match against Hero, then-champion Quackenbush, and Chuck Taylor to win the IWA Mid-South Heavyweight Championship. On April 11, 2008, Kingston no-showed a scheduled event, resulting in IWA Mid-South owner Ian Rotten stripping him of the championship. Rotten told the crowd that Kingston was "going through some personal problems", but that he was welcome back to the promotion once he got his act together. Kingston participated in the 2008 Ted Petty Invitational tournament, defeating Necro Butcher in the first round on Night One, but losing to Sami Callihan in the quarter-finals.

Ring of Honor

Kingston made his first appearance in Ring of Honor at Death Before Dishonor IV on July 15, 2006 as the fifth member of Team CZW in the Cage of Death match, which Team CZW lost.

Kingston next appearance was on March 14, 2008 when he showed up in the audience during a match between The Vulture Squad and Austin Aries and Bryan Danielson. During the match, Kingston harassed Ruckus, a member of The Vulture Squad in ROH and Kingston's stablemate in BLKOUT in other promotions, and claimed he'd be in Philadelphia on March 16, 2008 during ROH's Take No Prisoners pay-per-view. During the non-pay-per-view portion of the show, Kingston, Sabian and Robbie Morino of BLKOUT got into a brawl with Jigsaw and Julius Smokes of The Vulture Squad, while Ruckus tried to restrain both factions.

In June it was announced that BLKOUT was planning on disrupting ROH's pay-per-view taping, Respect is Earned II, on June 7. The Vulture Squad responded with Jigsaw challenging Kingston to face him in a match. Kingston appeared with BLKOUT, but failed to defeat Jigsaw, while Ruckus again tried to calm down both of his stables.

Kingston wrestled at the Ring of Honor Wrestling on HDNet tapings on March 1, 2009 in Philadelphia, defeating Sami Callihan. Kingston then appeared on the March 18 ROH videowire, and soon after re-developed his feud with Chris Hero.

Other promotions

Kingston is a regular in the New Jersey based Jersey All Pro Wrestling (JAPW) organization. After winning a number one contenders match on February 24, Kingston defeated Bandido, Jr. February 28 at JAPW's Jersey City Rumble to win the JAPW New Jersey State Championship.
