Kofi Kingston

Kofi Kingston updated fans on his recent surgery and being ahead of schedule in his recovery.

The New Day haven’t been seen together on WWE television in quite some time. Back in March of 2022, Big E was taken out of action when he suffered a broken neck during a match on SmackDown. Nearly a year later, Kofi Kingston was performing on the March 3rd episode of SmackDown and injured his ankle when Drew McIntyre did a dive to the outside of the ring.

Speaking on a recent edition of the Battleground Podcast, Kofi Kingston detailed the injury taking place and spoke about having surgery to repair the ankle.

“I’m actually in Orlando right now doing some rehab on my ankle. I had ankle surgery to remove a bone chip and fix a ligament after the massive Scottish, behemoth of a man’s Drew McIntyre landed on my leg and my body went east and my leg went West and my ankle was completely sprained. But they took out some bone chips and fixed the ligament. And now I’m on the mend. You know somewhere in between a robot and a zombie and you know, so somewhere in between I’m working my way back to the fold. So it’s all good.”

“I’m Doing Really Well” – Kofi Kingston On Recovering From His Ankle Injury

Continuing, Kingston spoke about being ahead of schedule in his recovery and when he expects to be able to return to the ring.

“That is good to hear that actually 3-17 obviously a day after 3-16 you know what I’m saying? So now I’m really bad with like dates and stuff. It would be, what, 12 weeks on Friday, 12 weeks post-op.

“I’m doing really well. I actually had this same surgery on the same ankle about six years ago to have bone chips removed. So I feel like this time around, like I kind of know what to expect. And I’ve been kind of ahead of schedule for the most part, and I’m really able to do a lot of like normal people things and live normal life. So now it’s just a matter of trying to, like go to the next level and do WWE Superstar things, you know what I mean in ring, things like that.

“So I’ve been in Orlando for the past week, just kind of seeing where I’m at and things are looking pretty good. So hopefully sooner than later you’ll see me in the ring, you know, but you are going to see me, you know, hosting the Panthers.”
