WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston, who is a part of The New Day, has been a prominent name in WWE. Fans get on their feet to cheer for the Ghanaian-born wrestler whenever he wrestles. The former WWE Champion is an incredible athlete and has added many accolades to his resume. He recently wrestled his 2130th match in WWE, which is yet another incredible feat.
The 42-year-old superstar is now a part of Monday Night Raw. On the September 18 edition of RAW, Kofi achieved this phenomenal milestone in the Stamford-based promotion. This is indeed a monumental achievement, as it reflects his long and remarkable career in the company.
Wrestle Features posted this on X and informed the fans about it. It tweeted and wrote, “Last night’s match vs. Ivar was Kofi Kingston’s 2130th match for @WWE.” What was supposed to be a tag team match between The New Day and The Viking Raiders was called off due to Eric not being medically cleared.
The New Day proposed a singles match to WWE official Adam Pearce. Kofi was put in the match after he won a Rock, Paper, Scissor game against his New Day brother Xavier Woods. The match itself is claimed to be the highlight of the night. The Jamaican superstar put on an incredibly gutsy performance against the Viking Raiders’ Ivar.

He won the WWE Championship once and the Intercontinental title four times. Kingston is also a three-time United States Champion.
