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. He also suffered an injury recently and now it seems Kingston will be undergoing surgery for the same soon.

Kofi Kingston was involved in a segment on SmackDown earlier this month with Sheamus, Drew McIntyre, Karrion Kross, and LA Knight. That led to a 5-way match to determine GUNTHER’s #1 contender for the Intercontinental Championship.

As previously reported, Kofi Kingston is currently dealing with an injury. Due to this, his status for WrestleMania 39 is under doubt now. Even fans became worried about his future due to this.

The New Day member took to Twitter and in a very lengthy post, revealed that he will be undergoing surgery for his ankle injury on March 17.

Long post ahead. Y’all that don’t like to read, this ain’t for you lol

Alabama folks are so kind. Earlier today instead of waiting 15 min for an Uber to take me to the YMCA Shades Valley to workout, I opted to take one of those electric street scooters. Big mistake. Half the trip was uphill and on semi highway roads! And I was wearing my air cast walking boot! 😂

I got within a mile of the
, and the scooter wouldn’t go further for some reason. Also, the Y was out of the drop off range, so I then had to call an Uber anyway, lol.

30 min later after 2 others canceled, one finally came to pick me up. I had him stop at target…I needed lotion (yes I was still ashy from this morning).

Finally got to the Y and the woman at the desk told me that in order to buy a guest pass, a member had to bring you as a guest… “but you can be my guest,” she said. And she vouched for me to workout. So kind of her to do for a stranger. I really wanted to move around a bit before I’m unable to do so after surgery tomorrow.

After the gym, I stopped at a stir fry spot called “Yummefy”. Tons of vegan options. The maps app said they were closed, but I was in luck! Nice lady gave me the best recommendations… I ordered all of them!

When I got my food, I went to inform the lady that the maps app said they were closed and they should probably fix their hours. She said, “oh we are closed. We just made that food for you anyway.”

My jaw dropped in disbelief. It was 15 minutes past the closing time! I thanked her profusely. So kind of her to go out of her way so that I could eat.

Anyway, a long message that can be summed up by saying that I am very grateful for the people I’ve come across here in Birmingham today.

Tomorrow, we march forward and into the hands of the best in the world at what he does! Let’s get this ankle right! 👊🏾

Kofi Kingston’s initial recovery timeline was five weeks, but that will be longer now as Kingston will be undergoing surgery today. In the past year, all three members of The New Day have been hampered by injuries. Big E has been out of action since last March with a broken neck, which remains an indefinite injury.
