It wasn’t too long ago when Kofi Kingston was the WWE Champion. The New Day member won the title from Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35. Three years down the line he is unsure of what’s in store for him at WrestleMania 38.

Kofi Kingston’s long-time friend and fellow New Day member Big E is sidelined after he suffered a broken neck a couple of weeks ago on SmackDown. Big E will miss this year’s WrestleMania. As for Xavier Woods, he suffered an injury to the plantaris muscle of his calf a couple of months ago. He was said to be out of action for 4-6 weeks. King Woods still has a chance to recover in time for a WrestleMania berth.

Kofi is hopeful that Woods would be able to return in time for The Show of Shows so that the New Day can feature on the card. In an appearance on the Bart Winkler Show, Kofi said:

“For those who don’t know, he actually broke his neck a couple weeks ago, and luckily, I say luckily, he fractured his C1 and his C6 and it wasn’t any worse than that,” Kingston said. “He didn’t have spinal cord damage, any misalignments. He’s moving around pretty well with all things considered and now it’s just a matter of rest and recovery. He will not be available for WrestleMania for sure, I can guarantee you that.

“With regards to what I’m doing at WrestleMania, I don’t know, I’m not sure. Hopefully Woods will be back and we can mix it up with some of these tag teams out there but everything is up in the air, you never know what is going to happen leading up to WrestleMania, that’s why it’s so exciting because you just don’t know.”

Kofi Kingston gives his take on why the RAW and SmackDown after WrestleMania is so popular

Kofi described the RAW and SmackDown episodes after WrestleMania to be the “season premieres” and elaborated on what other reasons make the episodes so exciting.

Kofi Kingston has been involved in a feud with Sheamus, Ridge Holland, and now Butch (previously known as Pete Dunne). Over the last couple of weeks, Butch has attacked Kofi Kingston after his matches. The scene was set for a perfect three-on-three matchup at WrestleMania but unfortunately, Big E got injured and Woods’ return date hasn’t been confirmed yet.

Kofi meanwhile is excited for WrestleMania and the SmackDown after it. He said:

“More importantly the show after WrestleMania is almost like the season premiere, the SmackDown after where we’ve had a huge seasons premiere,” Kofi said. “And everyone knows there’s going to be a lot of surprises at Mania, there’s going to be title changes, surprise appearances, and things that are going to happen that people don’t expect.

“That’s what all that fallout is going to be on SmackDown and we get to navigate what happens and talk about the amazing show that this two-night Stupendous event has been. It’s going to be an awesome SmackDown, probably one of the better SmackDowns to go to of the year, the one right before Mania and the one right after.”
