Kofi Kingston Says “Performers Are Last To Find Out Things”

Its been proven over the last year that the WWE has communication issues. It was reported that the problem has been worsend by the news that Bruce Prichard restricts what stars can know when it comes to creative regarding their character. The lack of communication can also be seen in Adam Coles’s contract situation, which ended with Adam cole signing with AEW.

Now a superstar is speaking on the lack of communication backstage. Ringside News is reporting that WWE Superstars aren’t allowed to know about their own creative plans unless they are given permission by Bruce Prichard. While speaking to 106 KMWL, Kofi Kingston confirmed that he doesn’t know what to expect until he sees creative announcements on social media.

“You would be surprised. Usually, as performers, we are the last one’s to find things out. This week and last week, I found out on Twitter what I was doing on Raw. It was announced I would be in an eight-man tag team match and I was like, ‘Oh, good to know. I gotta prepare.’ Same thing last week when we had the tag team turmoil, I had no idea until I looked on social media and I saw it. If I didn’t look on social media, I wouldn’t have known until I got to the building. Oftentimes, we have no idea what the show is going to entail or what we’re supposed to be doing. Even sometimes when we do know, it always changes. That’s the bittersweet part of being a WWE superstar. If you’re somebody who needs to know exactly what is happening, when it’s happening, and step for step, you’re going to be real upset working here because everything changes. I think it’s a good thing, keeps everyone on their toes.”

While it is apparent that many things are changing in the company we will have to see if WWE can get back to that level that they once were, and that is a full functional company and not a circus.
