Kofi Kingston inks new five-year WWE deal

During the latest episode of the Feel The Power podcast, Kofi Kingston announced that he has signed a new five-year deal with WWE.

Kofi had the best year of his WWE career in 2019 as fan support catapulted him to one of the main events of WrestleMania, winning the WWE title for the first time against Daniel Bryan.

The Ghanaian-born WWE Superstar has been working with the company since 2006, rising through the ranks from the old developmental territories of Deep South Wrestling and Ohio Valley Wrestling.

Kingston, now 38 years old, had many title runs while in WWE including winning the Intercontinental title four times, the United States title three times, the World Tag Team titles once, the Raw Tag Team titles four times, the Smackdown Tag Team titles four times as well, and the big WWE title once.

He spent six months as WWE champion following his epic win at WrestleMania 35, but lost it to Brock Lesnar in just seven seconds during the first episode of Smackdown on FOX in October.
