Kofi Kingston has been conspicuous by his absence from WWE TV in the past week or so.
The New Day member competed for the WWE Championship against Bobby Lashley at Money In The Bank last month, and appeared on Raw last week for a behind-the-scenes segment where he and Xavier Woods announced their merchandise behind John Morrison and The Miz.
However, Kingston was not at WWE SummerSlam 2021 over the weekend, nor did he participate in Monday Night Raw this week, and PWIInsider He confirmed that the 40-year-old is not currently authorized to perform.
Kingston was scheduled to be part of the promotional segment pushing the Pure Life Purified Water brand with Woods at SummerSlam and was dressed as another former NWO member.
However, Kingston wasn’t on the road with WWE this weekend and wasn’t on Raw last night either. In his absence, Woods defeated The Miz in a singles action, which led to a split between Lester and John Morrison.
