• Kofi Kingston Releases Statement After Devastating WWE Title Loss
Former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston released the following statement after his devastating 9 second loss to Brock Lesnar on SmackDown’s debut on FOX:
“Once again, I’m so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love I’ve seen on here over the last 24 hours.
As a WWE Superstar, one always hopes to experience moments in this industry that have a real and positive impact on people’s lives. Judging by by all of these messages, I’d say that mission’s been accomplished.
And again, without all of you and your support, none of this happens, so thank you all for letting me live out my childhood dream to the fullest. I am forever indebted to you.
I’m not sure what comes next, but I will always be so proud and honored to have been your champion.”
