Kofi Kingston Has Sights Set On Facing Brock Lesnar

Despite being on separate brands, WWE Champion Kofi Kingston has made it known that he’s ready to take on former WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar.

The Money in the Bank pay-per-view event was a newsworthy show as Kingston successfully retained the WWE Title over Kevin Owens earlier in the night. Moving along to the main event, Lesnar won this year’s Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match after taking Sami Zayn’s spot in the match where he beat Drew McIntyre, Ricochet, Baron Corbin, Randy Orton, Andrade, Finn Balor, and Mustafa Ali.

Lesnar can cash-in his MITB contract anytime within the next year for a championship match. That could be on RAW, which is a brand that he’s a member of the roster, or go to SmackDown Live to challenge for the top title on the blue branded show.

Kingston from sent a message to “The Beast” as he took to his official Twitter account where he wrote the following:
