Kofi Kingston is a veteran of the roster, through and through. He’s been on the roster for more than ten years. In that time, he became a four-time Intercontinental Champion and a three-time United States Champion. With the New Day, he holds the record for the longest tag team title reign in history. He also holds the record for cumulative days spent as Tag Team Champion. Kingston’s done it all, it seems. But he’s never won the big one. He’s never held the WWE Championship.
Kingston is no stranger to ladder matches. He’s been in a record-tying six Money in the Bank ladder matches. He knows what he’s doing in there, thanks to all the experience he has. His feats of athleticism and high-flying fit in well with the ladder match idea. They’re almost a perfect match for each other.
Despite all that, Kingston’s never won the match. If he were to win, it would be a feel good moment for lots of people, especially those who have been following Kofi throughout his career. It would mean that we’d be one step closer to WWE Champion Kofi Kingston.
