Kofi Kingston Reportedly Recently Suffered a Back Injury

Kofi Kingston reportedly suffered a back-related injury this past weekend, according to WrestlingInc.com.

It was reported that Kingston suffered the injury during his match against Dolph Ziggler at last Sunday’s SmackDown Live house show event in Binghamton, New York. Kingston was later pulled from the card of Monday’s SmackDown Live house show in Glenn Falls, New York due to the injury.

Kingston did make an appearance on last night’s episode of SmackDown Live in Manchester, New Hampshire albeit only for a backstage interview segment.

It was also reported that Kingston’s injury was stated to not be serious and that he is still expected to compete against Samoa Joe for the WWE Championship at this Sunday’s Extreme Rules event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
