Kofi Kingston might not be on television, but he's doing his part to continue the feud with Mustafa Ali.
Ahead of Monday's WWE Raw, Ali released a promo on social media, which aired on Raw, explaining why he's going after Xavier Woods. Ali brought up two years ago, when he was injured and had to miss Elimination Chamber. It was Kofi Kingston who replaced him in the bout, leading to Kofi's run to WrestleMania and eventual WWE Championship victory.
Responding to Ali's promo with a promo of his own, Kofi couldn't understand why his name was trending ahead of Raw.
"As it turns out, they are talking about you and what you had to say about me, which is essentially that you are upset and you blame me for where you are in your career today. You've been holding onto this for two years, which is crazy that you've been holding onto this with such hate and vigor and vitriol and anger. This belief and notion that I am responsible for taking your spot when you are the one who got hurt. All I did was fill in and go on to win the WWE Championship at WrestleMania. You think this moment should have been yours, and instead of going after the person that actually took you out, the person that hurt you, you have placed the blame on me, which makes no sense. I've been watching you over the past few months and I've seen you with RETRIBUTION and you're wearing these costumes and masks and I thought you might have lost your mind. Now, it's all but confirmed, you must have lost your damn mind. You wait til I'm injured to address this issue. You know that I'm not there even though I've been on the same roster as you for the last year or two, you could have addressed it at any time, but you wait until I'm gone. I'm gonna be back. It might be awhile, it might be sooner than you think. When I do come back, we're going to address this issue face-to-face and get down to the bottom of it and figure out what's really going on. See you when I see you. This dude done lost his damn mind, bruh!" exclaimed Kofi
