Kofi Kingston has been out of action since March after sustaining an injury that required him to undergo surgery. It seems that there is a light at the end of the tunnel for his return.

Kofi Kingston was injured during the March 3rd episode of WWE SmackDown. He hurt his ankle while executing a move at ringside. This went down as Drew McIntyre executed a flip dive, taking down multiple wrestlers in the process, but Kofi needed to take time off then..

While speaking on the Battleground podcast, Kofi Kingston opened up about his recovery status. It seems that things are right on track to get him back in the ring.

“I’m actually in Orlando right now doing some rehab on my ankle. I had ankle surgery to remove a bone chip and fix a ligament after the massive Scottish, behemoth of a man’s Drew McIntyre landed on my leg and my body went east and my leg went West and my ankle was completely sprained. But they took out some bone chips and fixed the ligament. And now I’m on the mend. You know somewhere in between a robot and a zombie and you know, so somewhere in between I’m working my way back to the fold. So it’s all good.


That is good to hear that actually 3-17 obviously a day after 3-16 you know what I’m saying? So now I’m really bad with like dates and stuff. It would be, what, 12 weeks on Friday, 12 weeks Postop. I’m doing really well. I actually had this same surgery on the same ankle about six years ago to have bone chips removed. So I feel like this time around, like I kind of know what to expect. And I’ve been kind of ahead of schedule for the most part, and I’m really able to do a lot of like normal people things and live normal life. So now it’s just a matter of trying to, like go to the next level and do WWE Superstar things, you know what I mean in ring, things like that. So I’ve been in Orlando for the past week, just kind of seeing where I’m at and things are looking pretty good. So hopefully sooner than later you’ll see me in the ring, you know, but you are going to see me, you know, hosting the Panthers.”

Xavier Woods has carried on as a singles competitor in Kofi Kingston’s absence. Of course, Big E has sadly not returned from his broken neck yet.

Kofi Kingston is also featured on the poster for WWE’s upcoming tour in Germany. That points toward his expected return by then, so things are looking up for the former WWE Champion.
