WWE News: Kofi Kingston Injured, Extreme Rules Title Match Cancelled?
One of the main events of Extreme Rules looks to be in jeopardy as per the current reports regarding the top-most Smackdown superstar. None other than the WWE Champion Kofi Kingston is dealing with a slight injury that is yet to clear him for in-ring competition. The same condition prevails even at a time when the PPV is just four nights away.
The injury scare around Kofi Kingston broke out during this past Monday Night. Unlike the recent past episodes of WWE Raw, Smackdown superstars had to attend a separate live event show. Kofi Kingston was about to feature in a match against Dolph Ziggler like this past weekend which was not possible due to the injury.
The house show that took place in New York on this past Monday witnessed Kofi Kingston in attendance. But he was not able to compete and WWE did acknowledge his injured condition to be the reason why he was out of action. So he provided company to his New Day brothers, Big E and Xavier Woods to the ring who defeated The B-Team in a tag team matchup.
Fast forward to this week’s Smackdown, WWE did not use Kofi Kingston in any physical capacity due to the exact same reason. He only cut a promo about his WWE Championship match against Samoa Joe on this Sunday night. Even Joe was not in action too and cut a heel promo on the show which was the final buildup for the Extreme Rules matchup.
WrestlingINC.com provided latest updates on Kofi Kingston saying that WWE officials are really hopeful about his Extreme Rules appearance. He is dealing with a back issue and hence WWE gave him off on both Raw and Smackdown. This would allow to heal him up within the huge match set for the July 14th event. The champion himself believes that he will get ready for the next title defense.

But that won’t stop him from competing in the title match. There was a speculation whether WWE adds a ladder match stipulation into the match. But that may not be the case considering Kofi’s ongoing injury.
