Kofi Kingston is certainly a true veteran in the pro wrestling world, having worked in WWE for over a decade. He has competed in several memorable matches and won various championships. Every year, during the Royal Rumble, fans wait in anticipation for one of Kingston’s crazy elimination spots. Unfortunately, Kingston suffered yet another botch during this year’s Rumble match and has now reacted to the same.
Kofi Kingston is always the highlight of a Royal Rumble match due to his creative ways of avoiding elimination. Fans simply wait every year to see what imaginative way Kingston will avoid getting elimination in the Royal Rumble match.
Kofi Kingston was eliminated afterward thanks to a botched jump to the outside during last year’s Royal Rumble match. Unfortunately, Kingston suffered a similar fate during this year’s match as well.
GUNTHER pushed Kingston to the outside while Xavier Woods set up a chair for Kingston to land on. However, Kingston was unable to save himself and went head first on the announce table. Kingston took to Twitter after the conclusion of the match and stated that it was the will of the universe for his second consecutive Royal Rumble botch.
Welp, 🤷🏾♀️ The universe has spoken… RIP 🪦 ☠️ #RoyalRumble
Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods will be defending their NXT Tag Team Championships at NXT Vengeance Day on February 4th, so Kingston will be more focused on that than his current botch. Regardless, it’s still a shame the botch happened.
