• Kofi Kingston Addresses Fans Who Are Upset About His 9 Second Loss To Brock Lesnar
During a recent interview with Yahoo Sports, Kofi Kingston addressed the fans who are upset about him losing the WWE Championship to Brock Lesnar in a 9 second match on SmackDown’s premiere on FOX.
Below is what Kofi said:
“I appreciate the passion [from the fans], I do. There are people who have careers that span years and they never have this kind of following, so I’m really fortunate to have that.
It’s their right to be angry if they want to be angry, but it’s my job to keep moving forward.
There’s a whole lot of stuff we don’t have control over, but we work with what we’re given, try to get a little bit more and claw your way back.
It might not be a direct, linear path.”
