Kofi Kingston beat Daniel Bryan (now Bryan Danielson) for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35. Kingston dropped the title to Brock Lesnar in a 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.
