WWE Raw: The New Day member and former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston still mull over the finish of his WWE Championship bout against Brock Lesnar. Kofi dropped the prestigious gold to Brock Lesnar on the FOX Network Premiere of WWE Smackdown on October 4, 2019, in less than a minute.
Recently, Kofi sat down for an interview with the Battleground podcast, where the former WWE Champion said dropping the title to the Beast Incarnate was just so quick, and if it was in his hands, he would have had the match a little bit longer. Here is what Kofi said,
“It was just so quick. I don’t get paid by the hour, and It was a short amount of work for me. I didn’t really have a lot of bumps and bruises, just one, so that was cool. If it was up to me, I would have had the match go a little bit different than the way it did, but that’s not up to me. The only thing I can really control is my performance and my ability to do what I am asked to do to the best of my ability, and that’s what I’ve made a career of doing over the last decade-plus. It kind of was what it was.
I think the positive is that I realized how much people are behind me. Even still, people are mad about the way that the title reign ended, especially being that it came about so magically and organically but it happened to be the direction that the company wanted it to go. What are you going to do? You go to your job & you either do it, or you don’t. I don’t really have much of a choice, but I just try to focus on the future and cement my legacy by the actions that I can control.”
WWE Raw: What’s cooking for Kofi Kingston now?
Kofi Kingston challenged Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship at the Money in the Bank PPV last Sunday. It seemed like the wind was blowing one way as Kofi was completely manhandled and dismantled by the All-Mighty WWE Champion.
With Goldberg returning this past week on WWE Raw to challenge Bobby Lashley for the WWE title, it seems like Kofi will head back to the New Day and compete as a tag team along with Xavier Woods for the time being.
