5 Possible reasons why Kofi Kingston appeared on Monday Night Raw alone
Kingston wasn't joined by his usual New Day members as he joined Roman Reigns and Daniel Bryan on Monday Night Raw with some unfinished business since Bryan had a rematch clause that he needed to cash in.
It was a shock that Kingston made the trip to Cincinnati on his own since The New Day has come as a package deal over the past few weeks, ever since he became WWE Champion and they have become his protection against a number of his opponents as well, so it was strange of him to go into enemy territory alone but WWE could have had a much bigger plan.
#5. To prove that he can defend his Championship alone
Kofi Kingston has had the help of The New Day over the past few weeks, and the likes of Big E and Xavier Woods have been able to protect Kofi to the point where he mentioned that The New Day held the WWE Championship under the "Freebird rule."
Of course, this wasn't the case last night since Kingston was forced to move over to Raw and defend the Championship on his own without Woods or Big E, but he was able to do it and able to put on a fantastic show.
As a face Champion, Kingston needs to prove that he's able to pull it out of the bag even when the odds are stacked against him otherwise it's not going to work out well for him since it's a very heel thing to be reliant on your teammates to help you win every match.
It was a good outing for Kingston, and it proved beyond a doubt that he deserves to be holding that Championship, regardless of what the people backstage in WWE believe.
