Kofi Kingston beat Daniel Bryan (now Bryan Danielson) for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35. Kingston dropped the title to Brock Lesnar in squash match during SmackDown’s premiere on Fox. Fans were livid as Kingston was put out with a single F5.
Many believe Kingston hasn’t recovered since his quick defeat at the hands of The Beast Incarnate. WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg, however, has a different opinion on the match and it’s outcome as well. Road. The SVP of Live Events provided his two cents on the match during a new interview with Sportskeeda.
“I don’t think it ruined Kofi. I think it probably was Fox, Brock Lesnar, cross-appeal. He’s a name, and Vince loves him and Vince is drawing with him, tried and true. Hey, let’s shock the world, send him out there, and kill [Kingston] in a minute. I can hear him saying it now. It is what it, is but maybe Big E would’ve given a better battle.”
Kofi Kingston’s New Day partner, Xavier Woods, said he set fire to his Brock Lesnar T-shirt after the squash match with Kingston. Keep reading Ringside News for more.
