Here's your fight size update for Monday, May 24, 2021:
- Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Kofi Kingston stated that, while he doesn't believe in looking too far into the future, he believes that if Big E gets the opportunity to challenge for the WWE Universal Championship, he will exceed every expectation:
“If E gets thrust into that role, going toe-to-toe with the universal champion, if that happens, [Xavier] Woods and me are going to lose our minds,” Kingston says. “I’m not big on looking too far ahead, but if that were to happen, E will exceed every expectation.
“He can talk, can make you laugh, he can gyrate his hips and he can beat you up. I’m so happy to see his success with the intercontinental championship, being able to continue the legacy of the workhorse title. His way with words is unmatched, and his ability to connect with the crowd is very special. E is ready to be at the top of this industry.”
