Last week’s episode of Raw saw WWE reveal that Kofi Kingston had suffered a jaw injury and therefore would be out of action for the foreseeable future.
During the latest episode of ‘The New Day, Feel The Power’ podcast, Kofi went into detail on his jaw injury, mentioning how it got worse over time.
“So I got a knee in the face by Cedric Alexander, like three weeks ago and a couple of my teeth chipped, it was all fine it was cool and the point of impact was like real sore so I’m like okay it’s a bruise or whatever.”
“The next week we had a six-man match and everything was fine, some pain but not terrible and then the next week, right before we went out it felt loose, and as soon as we get out there to the ring I’m moving around and now I’m feeling it come out of place and just feel like it wasn’t set in.”
Kingston went on to mention how the scenario could have been different if fans were there due to the adrenaline rush throughout every match.
“I’ve been not necessarily injured but been hurt in a match and just feel like the adrenaline of the crowd makes you will your way through it. It changes the whole dynamic of how we do what we do. The approach even is really strange. The best way I could describe it is different.”
