Former WWE Champion and current New Day member Kofi Kingston has competed in every Royal Rumble match since 2009, but it seems his 11-year streak of Rumble appearances will be ending this year.

For the past eleven years, Kofi Kingston has entertained several fans by somehow managing to not get eliminated in the Royal Rumble match in the most creative of ways.

Apart from Kingston, Dolph Ziggler has also competed in eleven straight Royal Rumble matches. Ziggler will be appearing for this year’s Rumble event and so he is closer to beating Kane’s record of thirteen appearances in the Royal Rumble match.

Mustafa Ali announced that he will be taking Kofi Kingston’s spot in the Royal Rumble match on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW.

Kofi Kingston is currently out of action due to a legitimate jaw injury, which he suffered a few weeks ago on RAW. It has not been revealed how long Kingston will be away from WWE television.
