5 Things WWE wants you to forget about Kofi Kingston
The biggest story going on in WWE in the last month or so is the amazing saga of an Underdog trying to overcome all odds to achieve his dream. Yes, we are talking about the "KofiMania" that has been running wild brother!
Kofi Kingston is one of the most experienced wrestlers in WWE's current roster. While he never was a huge singles star, ever since his awe-inspiring performance in the gauntlet match on the SmackDown before Elimination Chamber, Kofi is on another level in terms of popularity and being over with the fans.
Currently, the whole WWE Universe, even his fellow wrestlers are rooting for him to win the WWE Championship by defeating Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35 and finally get his long overdue WrestleMania moment.
During the peak of his popularity, there are certain things that WWE wants the fans to forget about Kofi Kingston. In this article, let's take a look at 5 of those things which WWE doesn't want us to remember about the #1 contender for the WWE Championship. Do let us know your thoughts about these in the comments section below.
#5 His Middle Name
Yes, you read that right. Our beloved Kofi Kingston had a middle name once. When he debuted in ECW many years ago, he was known as Kofi Nahaje Kingston.
This middle name had roots back to West Africa, but his gimmick was that of a Jamaican. Maybe this was one reason why WWE chose to remove that middle name and just call him - Kofi Kingston.
Recently, WWE has made a habit of removing wrestlers first or the second name due to some reason or the other. There are many victims of the same - Antonio Cesaro becoming just Cesaro, Eric Rowan becoming just Rowan, Andrade 'Cien' Almas being shortened to Andrade, and the very recent one, Mustafa Ali being reduced to just Ali.
The logic behind this is most probably to make the names much easier for the fans to remember and chant. WWE would surely not want anyone to remember the middle name of Kofi.
