Wrestling fans across the world have expressed anger over the quick loss of WWE champion, Kofi Kingston to Brock Lesnar. Many termed the show a disrespectful case of match-fixing. Further, the wrestling bout was described as unfair to the Ghanaian-born former champion.

Kofi Kingston, full name – Kofi Nahaje Sarkodie-Mensah hails from Ghana. In April 2019, he defeated Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35 to win the WWE Championship. This was his first world title in WWE.

Furthermore, he is the first African-born WWE Champion. The wrestling champion is a member of The New Day along with Big E and Xavier Woods. In addition, Kingston holds the singular record for most days spent as a Tag Team Champion within WWE.

Certainly, the foregoing must have contributed to the angst expressed by wrestling fans at his disgraceful dethronement.
