Kofi Kingston is known for avoiding battle royal eliminations in a spectacular way and he has reacted to a recent elimination name from WWE’s NXT show.
During his legendary career in WWE, Kofi Kingston has done it all from being a WWE Champion in 2019 to winning Tag Team Titles with New Day over ten times and he has a WWE record of 14 title reigns as a Tag Team Champion.
The New Day’s Xavier Woods and Kingston are the current NXT Tag Teams Champions as well after winning the titles last month at Deadline.
While Kofi has had a lot of success in WWE thanks to multiple championship wins, he might be best known by some people due to the incredible elimination spots he has been part of during Royal Rumble matches. Whether he’s jumping off a barricade to get to the apron, using a chair to get back to the ring or getting help from other people, Kofi is known for finding a way to make an elimination save.
This past Tuesday on the January 10th edition of NXT, there was a 20-woman battle royal. One of the highlights of the match was provided by Sol Ruca, who made her NXT TV debut in late 2022.
During the battle royal, Sol Ruca looked like she was going to be eliminated by Toxic Attraction’s Jacy Jayne & Gigi Dolin. Ruca ended up walking on her hands in a handstand. She put one foot down at one point, but then she walked (on her hands) toward the ring. Ruca put her feet against the bottom rope and pulled herself back up for the incredible save. She did get eliminated shortly after that.
Kofi Kingston reacted to it on Twitter, writing:
“Bruh…she is incredible! SUPER Athlete! 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 @SolRucaWWE”
