Big E and Kofi Kingston lost the SmackDown Tag Team Titles during The Horror Show at Extreme Rules. The end of that match apparently put Kofi Kingston out of action.
During the blue brand’s show this week, Big E and Kofi Kingston were shown backstage as Kingston was coming out of the trainer’s office. He told Big E that he’s going to be out of action for about six weeks due to an injury. They didn’t say what the injury is.
Kofi followed this up by giving Big E a pep talk. He said that it’s about time that people see what Big E can do on his own. Corey Graves also said that he’s excited to see what the powerhouse of the New Day will be able to do on his own.
Big E has often talked about a singles run. It looks like he’s going to get at least six weeks on his own.
