The plot continues to thicken with stars not being around for SummerSlam. We noted previously that Sasha Banks was not at SummerSlam due to eating out at a restaurant before the pay-per-view. This was against WWE’s Covid protocol. It seems like another star is now being noted as not being cleared to compete and that is Kofi Kingston….Is John Cena Retiring After WWE SummerSlam?
Now, I must first state that Kofi’s reason for not being at SummerSlam is not yet confirmed. With Sasha, at first it was “unforeseen circumstances,” but with Kofi, all we have to go off of is that he is not cleared to compete.
It’s my personal guess that Kofi Kingston also failed to adhere to Covid protocol in some way and now WWE must wait for test results to come back in order to clear him for action back in WWE. It was stated by Pwinsider.com that: “For those asking about Kofi Kingston disappearing from WWE TV and not being part of SummerSlam or Raw, PWInsider.com has been told by multiple sources that he is not currently cleared to perform. Kingston was originally slated to be part of the promotional segment pushing the Pure Life Purified Water brand with Xavier, dressed as another member of the NWO, but obviously that did not happen. He was not on the road this weekend.”
We will have to see what’s to come. Special thanks to RingsideNews
