• WWE Wrestler Isn’t Mad About Getting Squashed By Brock Lesnar
RAW wrestler Kofi Kingston recently spoke to DAZN and addressed his October 2019 WWE Title loss to ‘The Beast’ Brock Lesnar on SmackDown, which ended up being an 8-second squash match.
Here’s what the New Day member had to say:
“I told a lot of people that if it was up to me, I would have had that match be different in the way that it went down. But the thing is, that it’s not up to me.
I think what we need to realize is that you control what you can control. That’s it. I don’t get mad over what I can’t control.
I show up to work, and it’s like, ‘What we’re doing? Ok, maybe we can do it like this, but we’re going to do it like this’.
Then once you have the outline of what’s going to happen, that’s the way that you proceed.”
Kingston won the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35 by defeating Daniel Bryan.
