What's the story?

WWE recently took to Instagram and referred to WWE Champion Kofi Kingston as "Kofi 2 Belts".

Kofi Kingston defeated Jack Gallagher on the latest edition of UpUpDownDown, earning him the UpUpDownDown title.

In case you didn't know...

Kofi Kingston's decade-long struggle came to closure as he defeated Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35 to win the WWE Title. The emotional win came in the wake of a fan-led movement named KofiMania, which saw the WWE Universe clamoring to see Kofi get a title shot at The Show of Shows.

Kofi recently proved that the victory at 'Mania wasn't a fluke by any means, when he defeated Daniel Bryan on a recent episode of Monday Night Raw to retain his title, and then went on to do the same against Kevin Owens at Money In The Bank.
