As we have seen last week, the revival made their main roster debut. This was the post-Wrestlemania episode of Raw where they made the fullest impact against the longest reigning tag team champions of all time.

They accepted an open challenge thrown by The New Day and defeated them on their debuting night.

They were not done with the victory since they went right after Kofi Kingston, following the match. They targeted the ankle of the high-flying superstar to dislocate it. Once Raw went off the air, we were given updates that the one-third of the New Day was hurt badly.

There were indications that Kofi Kingston might have to undergo surgery once the onslaught took place. This was further confirmed by WWE’s official website where the company stated that a surgery was performed in his right ankle.

It was also stated that Kofi will be out of action on Raw for at least a couple of months with the injury suffered by the beat-down. This is what was posted on WWE.com regarding the matter:

“Kofi Kingston sustained an injury to his right ankle during The Revival’s post-match assault last Monday night on Raw, and WWE.com can confirm that the former Raw Tag Team Champion will be out of action for several weeks.”

“During the attack by The Revival, Kofi injured his right ankle and heard a crack, and was unable to put weight on his leg following the attack,” 

WWE physician Dr Chris Amann told WWE.com.

“Further evaluation and an MRI revealed that the attack had caused fragments of bone to break off the ankle bone (talus), requiring arthroscopic surgery to remove the bone chips from the damaged joint.”

Previously, updates from Kofi’s partner, Big E suggested that the injury was not legit and it might be a work to keep him aside from WWE TV. Big E made fun of the injury as seen in the picture.

But, later with WWE and other sources confirming the injury, it was confirmed that it is legit. He will have to undergo a routine rehab process now that the ankle surgery is done. It is being assumed that he will not be back anytime soon since this type of ankle concussions take at least 2 to 3 months to heal up.
