It was revealed recently that Raw star Kofi Kingston had suffered a broken jaw. Few details were provided about the injury but now Kingston himself has opened up about it.
On a new edition of the New Day: Feel The Power podcast, Kofi Kingston revealed that the injury occurred when he was kneed in the face by Cedric Alexander. He also revealed that the move chipped a few of his teeth. Here is the quote, courtesy of Fightful:
“I got kneed in the face by Cedric Alexander three weeks ago. A couple of my teeth chipped, it was fine and cool. The point of impact was real sore. I thought it was a bruise or whatever. The next week, we have a six-man match and everything was fine. A little bit of pain, not terrible. Then, the next week, right before we went out, it kept feeling like it was loose. As soon we get to the ring, I’m moving around and I feel it like get out of place and like it wasn’t set in. I feel that if the fans were there, I wouldn’t have felt that. Throughout the match, anytime I would get hit, I would grab my jaw. The entire match, I was thinking about it.”
Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods lost the Raw Tag Team Championship to The Hurt Business at TLC 2020. They had been champions since moving to Raw in the Draft back in October.
