After an impressive run last week that included a Gauntlet Match on SmackDown Live and his memorable performance in the WWE Championship Elimination Chamber Match, Kofi Kingston had an even bigger roller coaster experience this week.
The New Day member went from being put in the main event of the upcoming WWE Fastlane 2019 pay-per-view in a WWE Championship match against Daniel Bryan, to being pulled from the match and replaced by Kevin Owens by Vince McMahon in under 7 days.
On Thursday, Kingston took to social media to post a statement, sharing his thoughts on everything that went down this week. His statement reads as follows:
“My entire career has been a series of ups and downs, starts and stops. I really shouldn’t be surprised, but this one hurt. We came so close. And I say ‘we’ because this journey has been bigger than just me. It’s Woods’ journey, it’s E’s journey, it’s every one of you who has followed and supported my career for the past 11 years.
“To have it all stripped away so suddenly is painful, to put it mildly. I appreciate you all more than you know and I thank you all for your love and support. Mark my words: We will be back. The journey does not end here.”
