5 Times WWE Superstars lost when they most certainly shouldn't have
- We take a look at 5 instances of Superstars losing matches when they shouldn't have.
#4 Brock Lesnar vs Kofi Kingston
Last year, FOX started broadcasting SmackDown on its network. The premiere episode of SmackDown happened in October. The company had announced a WWE Championship match between Kofi Kingston and Brock Lesnar for that show. Everybody knew that Kingston is going to lose at the show. And he did, in merely 5 seconds.
This loss took away the credibility Kingston had as a champion. And it also hurt the WWE Championship in many ways. First of all, Lesnar is a part-time champion and there wasn't any need for such a title change. Also, he didn't stay on SmackDown for long since he moved to RAW.
Overall, Lesnar's victory didn't benefit SmackDown in a major way and we think Kingston should've retained in this match. Yes, he would've found it difficult to beat Lesnar but the title could've still be retained via disqualification. The New Day Superstar has recently lost his SmackDown Tag Team Championship to The Miz and John Morrison and we think that this loss is actually good for him. Because it'll allow him to elevate as a singles wrestler once again in WWE.Published 02 Mar 2020, 14:41 IST
