No one is perfect.
Not even Kofi Kingston.
The New Day member recently appeared as a guest on the “Going Postl” podcast for an in-depth interview, during which he reflected on botching his popular WWE Royal Rumble elimination avoidance high spots two years in a row.
“This past year (in the men’s Royal Rumble match), I was like, you know what? Let’s make this easy money,” Kingston stated. “This should be simple, you know what I mean? I’ll jump to a chair. This is gonna be easy, especially after the year before. We gotta just get back on the board and sure enough when I got knocked off, I came off so hard that when I turned around, I didn’t have time to adjust. So I’m like uh-oh, let me try to adjust in the air. So ironically, if I would’ve jumped up like I jumped the first year, I might’ve had a chance to adjust in the air but this time, I jumped out and had no time. So then I was like, oh, and then hit my head on the table and everything. Just get me out of here man. Get me the hell out of here. It’s over, it’s done.”
Kingston also touched on potential future high spots of similar nature in upcoming WWE Royal Rumble premium live events.
“I’ve been in that position for so long that I try to think about things to do and it’s almost like reiterations of the older ones or trying to one-up the older ones,” Kingston said. “Then I’m thinking like, man, well risk-reward, is this worth it to try it and not do it? Or maybe that’s the deal, maybe that’s what I do now is like try it and then fail at it for the next 12 years and then have a… So I don’t know. I’m on the fence about where it’s gonna go, but there’s part of me too that wants to be like, oh no, F you. I’m gonna do it. I’m just gonna do it… Yeah, I can’t go out like that, can’t go out like that, that can’t be the last one. But I don’t know. It is what it is. We’ll see what happens.”
