“We had a Bad Night Tonight” – Kofi Kingston Gives an Injury Update After Disheartening Loss on WWE Raw
WWE Raw Tag Team Champion, Kofi Kingston, injured his knee after being in the ring twice at the latest episode. Since then, he has provided an update about the knee injury.
“You know, I’m gonna be alright. This is not ballet, as they normally say. I’m gonna be just fine. You know, we had a bad night tonight, but we’re gonna bounce back.”
Even though he said they will bounce back, staying true to their Tag Team name – The New Day, it does not seem an immediate action. His walk revealed that he will need ample rest to recover.
Kofi Kingston had to battle twice on WWE Raw
Kofi Kingston had to wrestle twice during the episode. His first match was against Shelton Benjamin. Benjamin tried to secure the win by throwing Kingston from the ring. However, ultimately Benjamin ended up in the barricades. As he came back inside the ring, Kingston attacked him with a Trouble in Paradise. He defeated Benjamin in the singles action.
It was during this match when Kingston’s ankle took a bad landing.
This is the second time Kofi Kingston and Shelton Benjamin have been in a singles match against each other. Previously, during the 2008 edition of ECW, both of them had their first televised singles match.
Both of them put up a brilliant match. It was good enough for the company to have the same match twice where each of them wins once.
Kingston’s loss at the hands of Cedric Alexander
Coming back to Monday Night Raw, even though he won that match, soon afterwards Cedric Alexander called him back inside the ring for a second match. This time, Cedric Alexander’s entire focus was on the injured leg.
The latest episode of WWE Monday Night Raw opened with an appearance from Randy Orton.…
Now, since this match was immediately after the previous one, Kingston was still hurting from his injury. He hurt his leg a second time when he jumped off the rope, but missed.
Alexander ended up winning the match via pinfall using a Lumbar Check.
It is possible that Kofi Kingston is doing nothing but selling the injury. He may not have a busted knee or an ankle. It can be part of a storyline too. WWE is yet to reveal the true story.
