• WrestleMania 39 Appearance Canceled For SmackDown Star
Former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston recently injured his ankle during a brawl on an episode of SmackDown.
Due to this, he wasn’t able to compete in the Fatal 5-Way #1 Contenders Match for the Intercontinental Championship.
He had to undergo surgery, which was a success. He wrote the following on Instagram:
“Surgery went very well! Of course I had to FaceTime the boyzzz upon regaining consciousness… Very little recollection of the conversation, lol.
Thanks to everybody who sent me a message! I appreciate it more than you know! I’m home now. Let the road to recovery begin!”
As we have noted before, WWE had plans for all 3 members of The New Day to make an appearance at WrestleMania 39.
Kofi now won’t be able to appear at the Show of Shows, which is less than 2 weeks away.
