Kofi Kingston had an incredible run with the WWE title but a lot of fans were disappointed with the way his WWE championship reign ended during SmackDown’s Fox Premiere back in October.
During a recent interview with Alex McCarthy of Talk Sport, the former WWE Champion opened up about his title reign and his ‘disheartening’ loss to the Beast Brock Lesnar.
Kingston first talked about his long reign with the title but he then admitted that it was a disappointment to go out there and lose the championship so quickly on such an important night in SmackDown’s history:
“It was a bit of disappointment to go out there and have it go so quickly. On the biggest night of SmackDown. To have it end like that is a little bit disheartening, but at the end of the day, it is what it is. It’s not like I can do anything about it. “
Though Kofi is keeping a positive outlook on the whole situation. He later said that you have to lose the title after winning it to become a multi-time champion and he is hopeful about more reigns in the future.
Kofi Kingston held the WWE Championship for almost 6 months after winning it at WrestleMania 35. However, he lost the title in quick fashion during the SmackDown 20th anniversary special after Brock Lesnar beat him with just one F5.
