• WWE Champion Kofi Kingston Achieves Major Milestone

WWE posted the following:

Kofi Kingston joins exclusive 1,500-day championship club

“Yet another milestone for Kofi Kingston (he does that a lot), as the WWE Champion has logged his 1,500th day as a titleholder to place him in truly rarified company.

Kingston — who’s also held the Intercontinental, United States and all four versions of the Tag Team Championship — is just one of five Superstars to accumulate 1,500 days as a titleholder in the post-WrestleMania era.

Although Bruno Sammartino and Bob Backlund racked up years-long reigns in their day, only four other Superstars have crossed the 1,500 mark since the institution of The Showcase of the Immortals: Hulk Hogan, John Cena, Triple H and The Miz.

No matter how you look at it, that’s an impressive group to be counted among: Two Hall of Famers, a 16-time World Champion, and a fellow Grand Slam Champion. Congratulations once again to your W. W. E. World. Heavy. Weight. Champion.”
