Eddie Kingston off NJPW Strong taping due to positive COVID-19 test

Kingston was scheduled for a six-man tag match at Sunday's tapings in Las Vegas.

Eddie Kingston is off this weekend's NJPW Strong tapings due to testing positive for COVID-19.

Kingston revealed that he has COVID-19 in a tweet posted on Saturday afternoon. He was scheduled to team with Homicide & Wheeler Yuta against Jay White & The Good Brothers (Karl Anderson & Doc Gallows) at Sunday's NJPW Strong Autumn Action tapings in Las Vegas.

In his tweet, Kingston wrote that he's going to test again to see if he'll be able to make this week's AEW Dynamite/Rampage. Kingston doesn't have a match announced for either show yet.

"So here we go, got covid won't be able to make Strong this weekend," Kingston tweeted. "It f*cking sucks going to test again to see if I can make tv this week."

On the Zero Hour pre-show for All Out this past Sunday, Kingston defeated NJPW's Tomohiro Ishii in a singles match. It was a rematch from May's NJPW Capital Collision event. Ishii defeated Kingston in that first meeting.

The Autumn Action tapings are being held at Sam's Town Live.
