Yes, another one. The amount of injuries that have been taken place in WWE over the last few weeks and months has been incredible. It feels like you can’t go more than a week or two without someone suffering an injury, which can wreck havoc on the company. Some of these are far worse than others, and hopefully the latest instance isn’t quite as bad.
According to Wrestlinginc.com, WWE Champion Kofi Kingston was injured during his match against Dolph Ziggler at a house show on Sunday night in Binghamton, New York. However, Kingston is said to be ready to go for his title defense against Samoa Joe on Sunday at Extreme Rules. Kingston did appear at Monday’s house show but did not wrestle as previously scheduled.
Kingston can go very well when healthy. Check out one of his recent major matches:
Opinion: This doesn’t sound too serious but the last thing that WWE needs right now is to have one of their top stars go down for any length of time. They’re barely making it on star power as it is and Kingston has been one of the driving forces on SmackDown Live. The injury seems minor, but that means they have dodged a bullet more than anything else. Hopefully this isn’t too bad and everything will be fine on Sunday, but that’s still a scary thought.
What have you thought of Kingston’s reign so far? Who will take the title from him? Let us know in the comments below.
