Real reason why Kofi Kingston is off TV for 6 weeks. The former WWE Champion reasoned his absence to a mysterious injury.
Kofi Kingston and Big E defended their tag team titles in an intense affair against Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro at WWE Extreme Rules. The artist collective came out the victors and Kingston’s body appeared to go through hell.
The worse was confirmed soon after, when the former WWE Champion revealed that he had been advised rest after injuring himself. He gave a heartwarming speech to Big E before giving his blessings to the former NXT Champion to pursue a meaningful singles career while him and Xavier Woods recovered.
While delighted with a singles push for Big E, many have expressed their concerns for Kingston wondering if he really is injured. However, it appears that the real reason is not as grim as the kayfabe explanation for his absence.
Real reason why Kofi Kingston is off TV for 6 weeks
Per Tom Colohue, via Sportskeeda.com Kingston is taking a six-week “quarantine period” in order to spend time with his family. WWE has reportedly told its talent team that they can take break from their work for some while due to this Covid-19 pandemic. They just have to inform their decision and give the promotion the time to write them off television so their absence makes sense.
“Kofi is absolutely fine,” Colohue said. “He has just been given six weeks off to take a quarantine period; go and see his family, take a quarantine period and then come back to work.”
“The WWE have mentioned to every member and talent they have in that locker room. They ave said to them, ‘if you want to opt-out of working, if you want to go and spend some time with your family, just tell us.’
“That’s where Daniel Bryan is at the moment, that’s where Kevin Owens was for a couple of weeks. If you want to spend some time away, come to us, we will find a way to write you out. All you have ask you is to give us the time to do that in a way that it makes logical sense. That is what happened with Kofi, and I’m sure he’ll be very happy to be Big E’s buddy and be in Big E’s corner cheering him on when he does return.”
