I don’t think this needs much of an explanation. Back at WrestleMania 35, Kofi Kingston won the WWE Championship, thereby becoming one of the faces of the company. This includes various media appearances, some of which are a little less serious than others. That was the case this week, when Kingston did something involving the weather, a suit, and pancakes.

On Tuesday, Kingston appeared on the Fox 40 (Sacramento) local news broadcast and did the local weather report while wearing a pancake track suit and holding the WWE Title. Kingston was in town for the SmackDown Live taping that night at the Golden 1 Center and promoted the event on the broadcast. He also posted a quick clip of the broadcast on his Twitter account, which you can see below.

Kingston could have another career. Check out his work on the weather forecast:

Opinion: These are the kind of things that you get to do as champion and while they might not be the most interesting in the world, they certainly are something fun. That’s what they were going for here and there’s nothing wrong with that. Maybe some of the local fans who hadn’t heard about the show or hadn’t made up their mind to go to the show that night wound up going and that’s exactly what WWE was going for here.

What do you think of Kingston’s title reign? Who takes the title from him? Let us know in the comments below.
