Kofi Kingston
While he managed to avoid an injury after taking an over the top rope dive at Wrestlemania 30, Kofi Kingston might have been injured during his taped match against Titus ONeil during WWE Superstars. He was limping noticeably and required some help to leave the arena. Some believe that he might be willing to work through the injury if it is not too bad.

Antonio Cesaro
Each year, wrestlers and officials backstage rank the performances by their stars at the biggest pay per view event of the year, but WWE is having a hard time trying to figure out what the best match of Wrestlemania 30 was. Everyone came through with good matches, even the mid level guys like Kofi Kingston and Antonio Cesaro in the battle royal.
April 7, 2014
Hulk Hogan
Considering how incredible the show was, WWE should not have any issues with coming up with Wrestlemania 30 highlights to show on Monday Night Raw this week. Brock Lesnar, Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, Rock, Daniel Bryan, Triple H, Batista, John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Randy Orton, Kofi Kingston, Big Show and Antonio Cesaro provided plenty of memorable Wrestlemania moments.

"People always say, 'Oh, there haven't been many black champions,' but on the other hand, there are a whole lot of white people that never won a belt either. These days, I think it's less of a racial thing. I honestly believe that if you are able to entertain and interact with the crowd, it doesn't matter what ethnicity you may be. WWE will reward you." - Kofi Kingston discusses racism and backstage politics

Kofi Kingston
While he is not a main event performer in WWE, Kofi Kingston draws in a pretty good salary. His downside guarantee is $254,200 a year. Even though he does have to pay for his own travel expenses, Kingston does get thrown into a couple of pay per view events per year, which gives his annual salary a nice boost from the PPV bonuses.
March 24, 2014
Darren Young
Since Wrestlemania is right around the corner, WWE has decided to tape a commercial in New Orleans to promote the pay per view. Fandango, Summer Rae, Kofi Kingston, Sheamus, Big Show, Nikki Bella and Brie Bella are all in town for the shoot. There are also reports that Darren Young might be a part of the cast as well, but that is unconfirmed.

"I've been clamoring at that for a while now, but the situation has to be right and the timing has to be right; everything has to be right. I wouldn't want to just do it for the sake of doing it because you might get lost in the shuffle that way. If the situation was right, it would give me a chance to do something completely different and show people a side of me they have never seen before, which I think would be great and I think would be fun." - Kofi Kingston wants heel turn

Big E Langston
While a lot of fans bought into the hype of the match since a legendary name was attached to it, WWE is viewing the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal as an afterthought. There is even a strong push to move it off the pay per view and utilized it as a kickoff match, despite several stars such as Ryback, Kofi Kingston, Big E Langston and Dolph Ziggler being rumored for spots.

Kofi Kingston
While he is highly unlikely to be chosen by management to win the thing, a lot of eyes will still be on Kofi Kingston during the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal during Wrestlmeania 30. Many are expecting him to come up with a high impact spot, which he has been known for doing during Money in the Bank and Royal Rumble.
March 15, 2014
Andre the Giant
For a while there, it looked like Kofi Kingston was going to miss out on Wrestlemania 30, even though he was heavily involved in some of the charitable work that WWE is doing in New Orleans, but the former Intercontinental Champion will now be given a chance to work at the pay per view by being an entrant in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.
March 12, 2014
Kofi Kingston
Since he was heavily involved with some charitable work for the company in New Orleans, there were those that believed that Kofi Kingston was going to be given a match at Wrestlemania 30. However, there are no plans backstage to do that for him. He will still be heavily involved in the event, but just not in a wrestling capacity.
March 5, 2014
Daniel Bryan
WWE has uploaded the quick hall of fame induction video for Paul Bearer that was shown on Monday Night Raw. It features stars like Daniel Bryan and Kofi Kingston doing quick interviews. It also features the legendary manager with Undertaker, Kane, Mick Foley and Vader.
March 4, 2014
Seth Rollins
There are talks that Big Show will be returning on Monday Night Raw this week, as the former world heavyweight champion was working live events for WWE over the weekend. He teamed up with Kofi Kingston to take on Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns. No word yet on who he will be working with when he returns, but there are talks that WWE wants him on Wrestlemania 30.

"Yeah, we were each other's road wives. With Punk, I consider him to be like a brother to me. He's one of the guys who took me under his wing when I first came. So we've been able to maintain a good relationship. And there are very few people in the business that you can call true friends, so I consider Punk to be that and more. So yes, "road wife" is the term we used to sum that all up." - Kofi Kingston on his relationship with CM Punk
February 22, 2014
Jinder Mahal
WWE removed the match involving Big E Langston, Drew McIntyre and Jinder Mahal from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. They also removed Jack Swagger and Kofi Kingston. That basically confirms that management views the Intercontinental Championship match at Elimination Chamber 2014 to be a filler segment.

Kofi Kingston
During a recent podcast interview, Kofi Kingston was asked who his dream opponent would be for Wrestlemania. He quickly replied that Rey Mysterio would be his first choice. Unfortunately, though, that seems highly unlikely to happen, as Kingston has not been penciled in for a Wrestlemania 30 spot yet. He could be a last minute addition.
February 16, 2014
Mark Henry
After months of being used as filler in the tag team division, it looks like Jack Swagger is going to receive a bit of a push in singles again. After defeating Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry and Rey Mysterio on Smackdown, he has earned himself a shot at the WWE IC title. It has also now been revealed that the match will take place at Elimination Chamber 2014.
February 15, 2014
Jack Swagger
There are some concerns within WWE right now about Rey Mysterio, as the masked performer might have possibly been injured during the Smackdown taping on Tuesday. He worked a fatal four way match against Jack Swagger, Mark Henry and Kofi Kingston. He landed wrong in the ring and had to roll outside to the floor to grab his knee.
February 13, 2014
Big E Langston
In a rather interesting move during the Smackdown taping, WWE did a number one contender's match to determine a new challenger for Big E Langston and the Intercontinental Championship. Rey Mysterio, Mark Henry and Kofi Kingston were involved, but Jack Swagger was the one that ended up winning the match.
