Freddie Prinze Jr Claims To Have Pitched "Kofi Kingston Gauntlet" A Decade Ago

We would have had KofiMania a decade ago if Freddie Prinze Jr. got his way.

In July of 2008, WWE hired actor Freddie Prinze Jr. to join their creative team. Prinze Jr. best known for classics such as "Summer Catch," "I Know What You Did Last Summer," and marrying Sarah Michelle Gellar is a longtime wrestling fan who had his own blog on WWE Universe community at the time. Prinze Jr. didn't last long in WWE, leaving the company in February 2009.

However, before he left, he claims to have pitched a storyline that we're currently seeing on SmackDown Live.

Kingston was Intercontinental Champion when Prinze Jr. was hired in 2018. After losing the title at SummerSlam, he was involved in storylines featuring World Heavyweight Champion CM Punk. Kingston and Punk won the World Tag Team Titles in October 2018.

So, it's not entirely out of the question that Prinze Jr. wanted to elevate Kofi even further as Kofi was a featured player in the company during Prinze Jr's short stint.

Next week on SmackDown, Kofi will have to go through Randy Orton, Samoa Joe, The Bar, and Rowan, in order to earn a WWE Title, shot at WrestleMania 35.
