Kofi Kingston Jokes About Not Being Paid By The Hour While Discussing WWE Title Loss To Brock Lesnar

Kofi Kingston addresses his controversial loss to Brock Lesnar.

While speaking during a recent interview on the Out of Character podcast, Kofi Kingston talked about the aforementioned match against Brock Lesnar. Kingston revealed that the match made him the most money in the least amount of time, apart from the Royal Rumble match last year.

“The F5 from Brock, I think a lot of people were surprised with how quickly it happened, you know? I don’t get paid by the hour, so (…) it was the most money I’ve made in the least amount of time, aside from the Rumble last year.”

That squash match was used as a way to introduce Cain Velasquez during SmackDown’s FOX debut. In the end, it only resulted in one Saudi Arabian match for Cain and Brock. Then WWE released Velasquez a short time later, so many fans feel it was all for nothing. Regardless, at least Kingston got a great payday out of it if nothing else.
