5 Things Kofi Kingston has accomplished in WWE that Brock Lesnar hasn't
#4 Number of televised victories in a row (21)
In Brock Lesnar’s first run as a full-time Superstar with WWE, he would often build a sequence of up to 10 televised victories in a row before losing in a tag match or via disqualification to bring an end to his winning run.
Since returning in 2012, the former UFC star’s longest winning run (eight matches) began in April 2017 at WrestleMania 33, where he won the Universal Championship from Goldberg, and ended when he lost against Roman Reigns at SummerSlam in August 2018.
In contrast, Kofi Kingston had an inconsistent win/loss record for the majority of his first 11 years in WWE before putting together an unprecedented winning run of 21 matches between April 2019 and July 2019.
The run began with the New Day member defeating Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35 and ended with him losing a six-man tag team match with Big E and Xavier Woods against Samoa Joe and The Viking Raiders on RAW.
Just to highlight the overwhelming difference between part-time and full-time Superstars, Lesnar’s sequence of eight straight wins came over the course of 16 months, while Kingston won 21 matches in a row in under three months.Published 03 Oct 2019, 01:30 IST
