• Kofi Kingston Comments On Randy Orton Holding Him Back In WWE

During a recent interview with The Ottawa Sun, WWE Champion Kofi Kingston talked about his upcoming match with Randy Orton at SummerSlam 2019 and opened up about Orton holding him back in WWE.

Below is what Kofi said:

“For those who don’t know, 10 years ago — in 2009 — I was on my way to the main-event scene and I was wrestling a top-tier guy like Randy Orton. The direction it seemed to be going was I would get main events — it didn’t happen. I come to find out Randy Orton had a lot to do with holding me back, using his influence to make sure I never got to the main-event scene.

I’ve had Intercontinental Championship reigns, US Championship reigns, Tag Team Titles, but I’d never had a WWE championship match — not one time in 10 years (until WrestleMania 35).

It’s going to be awesome. Here I am, the WWE champion against all odds and Randy Orton’s a bit upset about that. It’s a bit personal for me. It’s going to be a banger, it’s going to be an intense match and I can’t wait.”
