• Update On Kofi Kingston’s WWE Status

As seen on last week’s SmackDown, former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston noted that he’s injured and he wants Big E to shine on his own in singles competition now.

According to Tom Colohue, Kofi isn’t injured and was just given some time off to be with his family:

“Kofi is absolutely fine. He has just been given 6 weeks off to take a quarantine period, go and see his family, take a quarantine period and then come back to work.

The WWE has mentioned to every member and talent they have in that locker room. They have said to them, ‘if you want to opt-out of working, if you want to go and spend some time with your family, just tell us.’

That’s where Daniel Bryan is at the moment, that’s where Kevin Owens was for a couple of weeks. If you want to spend some time away, come to us, we will find a way to write you out, all we ask you is to give us the time to do that in a way that it makes logical sense. That is what happened with Kofi.”
