Kofi Kingston reveals the New Day’s contract status

In WWE, Kofi Kingston won the WWE Championship once, four times the Intercontinental Championship, three times the United States Championship, four times the Raw Tag Team Championship (twice with Big E and Xavier Woods, once with Evan Bourne and once with R-Truth), four times the SmackDown Tag Team Championship (with Big E and Xavier Woods) and once the World Tag Team Championship (with CM Punk).

He is also the 30th Triple Crown Champion and the 13th Grand Slam Champion of WWE. His second reign as Raw Tag Team Champion, which lasted 483 days (from 23 August 2015 to 18 December 2016) is the longest in the history of the title, managing to win the most in the decade (2010-2019), on an equal footing with The Miz titles (14).

He is the first African-born world champion in WWE history as well as its 30th Triple Crown Champion and 20th overall Grand Slam Champion (13th under the current format). In addition, Kingston himself holds the singular record for most days spent as a Tag Team Champion within WWE and is also known for innovative ways of suspending his elimination from Royal Rumble and battle royal matches.

With the exception of a few months spent as a villain in 2015 with The New Day, Kingston has been a heroic character for almost the entirety of his WWE career. In April 2019, Kingston defeated Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35 to win the WWE Championship, his first world title, but never headlined a WWE pay-per-view event over the course of his 180-day reign.

Speaking with Maria Menounos for her Better Together, he revealed the New Day’s contract status: “We just re-signed our contracts, or signed new contract extensions a little while ago so, we’re here for a little bit, you know? There’s still some gas left in the tank”.
