Kofi Kingston recently joined his New Day brother Big E on the sidelines following an unfortunately injury.
It was almost a year to the day (March 11, 2022, to be exact) when Big E landed badly on an overhead belly-to-belly suplex and injured his neck. He has been sidelined ever since, and on March 3rd of this year, Kofi hurt himself to the point of requiring surgery as well.
Though in Kofi’s case, the injury is much less serious (compared to a broken neck). Still, Kofi hurt his ankle performing a dive on the March 3, 2023 edition of SmackDown, which means he will, in all likelihood, miss WrestleMania 39, which is two weeks away.
After confirming his injury, Kofi Kingston also updated fans noting that his surgery would take place on March 17th, which was yesterday (Friday). Now, Kingston has provided fans with an update on his condition following the procedure, which came courtesy of a FaceTime conversation with his fellow New Day members.
“Surgery went very well! Of course I had to FaceTime the boyzzz upon regaining consciousness…Very little recollection of the conversation, lol.
Thanks to everybody who sent me a message! I appreciate it more than you know! I’m home now. Let the road to recovery begin!”
Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, and Big E will remain together as a group for the foreseeable future
With both Kofi Kingston and Big E out with injuries, the only active member of The New Day still appearing on WWE programming regularly is Xavier Woods. However, fans shouldn’t expect to see him embark on a singles career or otherwise leave the New Day in any way as he, Kofi, and Big E are all adamant that the trio will never turn on each other on-screen, despite Vince McMahon’s attempts at pushing such a split into action.
