According to a report on WrestlingInc., it seems that Kofi Kingston may have sustained an injury during a recent WWE Live Event, taking place in Hawaii. The SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions, The New Day were working a match against the heel duo of Baron Corbin and Dolph Ziggler when a crossbody from Kofi Kington went slightly awry, leading to this injury.

We understand that Kingston was seen limping after delivering the move and while the match did continue, he had to be helped to the back shortly afterwards. According to WrestlingInc.'s correspondent Kingston seemed like he was in pain, even when he was working the match.

This injury couldn't have come at a worse time, considering that The New Day just captured the WWE Tag Team Championships after a Sin City Street Fight against The Usos. Xavier Woods is facing injury woes of his own, and we wonder what the future of the championship will be, if the injury is serious. You cannot freebird a tag team title among one member, after all.

As it stands, we do not know if this was a minor or major injury, and what repercussions it will have, with regard to storylines and creative on SmackDown Live. Stay tuned to Sportskeeda Wrestling for further developments, as they happen.

Our best wishes go out to Kingston and we hope that the injury he sustained is only a minor inconvenience.
