• “It’s the most money I’ve made in the least amount of time” – SmackDown Star On His Match Against Brock Lesnar
Kofi Kingston has faced Brock Lesnar in two singles matches and lost both times.
At The Beast In The East 2015, Lesnar defeated Kingston in 8 minutes.
On the October 4th 2019 episode of SmackDown, Lesnar defeated Kingston in just 8 seconds to win the WWE Championship.
During an interview on the Out Of Character podcast, Kingston revealed that the 2019 match with Lesnar was the most money he made from a single match (excluding his quick elimination from the 2022 Men’s Royal Rumble match):
“The F5 from Brock, I think a lot of people were surprised with how quickly it happened, you know?
I don’t get paid by the hour, so it was the most money I’ve made in the least amount of time, aside from the Rumble last year.”
