Eddie Kingston Becomes Triple Crown Champion At AEW Worlds End

The finals of the inaugural AEW Continental Classic came and went at AEW Worlds End tonight, pitting long-time rivals Eddie Kingston and Jon Moxley against each other. The last time the two men clashed one-on-one was just over three years ago when Moxley barely edged out the victory to retain his AEW World Championship at Full Gear 2020.

This time, however, the stakes were arguably even higher as the winner would not only win the first-ever AEW Continental Classic tournament but also capture the ROH World, NJPW Strong Openweight, and AEW Continental Crown Championships in the process! After a brutal back-and-forth contest that was eerily similar to their clash three years ago, Kingston secured the pinfall victory out of nowhere after a lightning-quick Spinning Backfist.

The win means Kingston continues his current reigns as both ROH World and NJPW Strong Openweight Champion on top of becoming the first-ever AEW Continental Crown Champion, making him a Triple Crown Champion across All Elite Wrestling, Ring of Honor, and New Japan Pro-Wrestling. It’s unclear at this time if the belts will continue to be defended separately or as a collective Triple Crown Championship, similar to All Japan Pro Wrestling’s own Triple Crown title.
