Kofi Kingston has always given us a great show in his Royal Rumble appearances, always saving himself in spectacular ways just like Naomi for the female part. Unfortunately, however, in this year's Royal Rumble match, things did not go as they should, because after entering with number 24, Kevin Owens threw him out and in his attempt to cling to the barricades outside, he slipped.
After the incident the referee approached him, probably whispering to him that the confirmation of his elimination had arrived after 21 seconds of participation, with the WWE that could not ignore it, because even live, without replay, everyone is they are shrewd.
The latest news on Kofi Kingston
While last night didn't go Kofi Kingston's way, the man has had plenty of amazing Royal Rumble highlights throughout his WWE career. Kofi Kingston's Rumble highlights began in 2012 when The Miz thought he had managed to eliminate him, but Kingston managed to do a handstand and walk across the floor all the way over to the steel steps to save himself from elimination.
According to Wrestling Observer reporter Bryan Alvarez, the commercial was wrong and he added that more commercials had been planned for the end of the match, including one with Big E. "Kofi's big commercial was not timely and he was legitimately eliminated when he wasn't supposed to, there were commercials planned later with Big E out there." Kofi then decided to enter his Twitter account to comment on this unfortunate incident that saw him star in something that could definitely have gone differently: “Well!
'It's better to try and fail than to never try at all,' - someone said this." According to some news sites, such a thing also happened to Melina, in fact, the NWA superstar, who entered with number 2 immediately after Sasha Banks, was accompanied by the Boss over the ropes and fell.
It seems that Melina had to continue the dispute for a little longer, but also thanks to the emotion, in fact, we saw her almost cry in her initial face to face with Banks, she didn't hold on to the ropes and she completely went out, leaving the opponent waiting for the next entry.
The streak ended in 2020 at the hands of Brock Lesnar, and Kingston didn't participate in the 2021 Rumble. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. Perhaps Kingston can start a new streak at the 2023 Rumble. Only time will tell.
