Welcome back! Returns can be a lot of fun in wrestling as they can be quite the surprise. Sometimes you might have an idea that someone is on the way back but other times it can pop up when they are needed the most. This can make for some very fun moments, and that was the case this week as a pretty big name made his return to television after a few weeks away.
This week on SmackDown, King Woods was set to face Jey Uso, who was accompanied by his brother Jimmy. Rather than face Jey alone, Woods brought out the returning Kofi Kingston to be in his corner. Kingston had been missing since the November 5 edition of SmackDown when the Usos injured his knee. This was a cover for Kingston to take time off for the birth of his daughter.
He could be useful. Check out Kingston’s return, plus what he can do against the Usos:
Opinion: I’ve been a Kingston fan for a long time now and it is nice to have him back. The Usos vs. New Day might not be the freshest match in the world but it is going to be quality and that’s what the matches need. If nothing else, it gives the Usos a real threat to the titles for a change, as New Day is one of the few teams on their level in modern memory. If nothing else, it was nice to not have Kingston have any kind of medical issue in the first place so he could have been brought back at any time.
What did you think of the return? How will New Day vs. the Usos go? Let us know in the comments below.
