Kofi Kingston Explains Why SOS Stands For Simply Oh Snapalicious

Kofi Kingston has been using the SOS for the majority of his career, putting away plenty of opponents with the move early in his run.

The move is a forward Russian leg sweep that involves Kofi hooking his opponents and doing a forward flip while sweeping the leg of his opponent to plant their back on the mat.

Speaking on New Day: Feel The Power, Kofi explained where he got the move and what the SOS stands for.

"The SOS, I got from Madoka in Japan. The first time I saw it, I was like, 'Oh snap.' I called it Simply Oh Snapalicious. When moves look really cool, I don't mind when people take stuff from me and use it. Xia Li is doing a spinning roundhouse kick in NXT and people are like, 'Oh, she's taking your move.' That's not my move anymore. The way she did it, I can't do it like that. There are only so many moves to go around," he said.

Big E and Xavier Woods got a good laugh out of Kofi revealing what SOS stands for, while also questioning his acronym.

Kingston came up short in his opportunity to become number one contender for the WWE Title on Raw, losing to Drew McIntyre. If you missed anything from WWE Raw, check out Fightful's full report on the show by clicking here.
