Kofi Kingston lost the WWE Title during the debut episode of Friday Night SmackDown on Fox. This match lasted seconds and put a definitive end to Kingston’s run after KofiMania.
While speaking to Yahoo Sports, Kingston addressed those fans who were upset about his loss. They are not alone because Big E as also upset. Kofi appreciates the support, and he also really loved his run with the WWE Title.
Plenty of people never had an opportunity like Kofi Kingston did and he realizes how lucky he was to get it.
“I appreciate the passion [from the fans], I do. There are people who have careers that span years and they never have this kind of following, so I’m really fortunate to have that. It’s their right to be angry if they want to be angry, but it’s my job to keep moving forward. There’s a whole lot of stuff we don’t have control over, but we work with what we’re given, try to get a little bit more and claw your way back. It might not be a direct, linear path.”
We’ll have to see if Kofi Kingston will ever circle back around to the main event. It seems like The New Day are going to continue as Tag Team Champions in WWE in the meantime.
