Kofi Kingston has earned himself some gold this week by defeating The Miz on WWE Main Event to become the new intercontinental champion. Kingston’s reign marks the 137th I-C title reign and his fourth as champion.
Kingston defeated The Miz and ended his brief 85 day run of terror as intercontinental champion earlier in the week. I was excited when I heard the news as I have always been a big Kofi fan. Quite frankly I can’t recall seeing many bad Kofi Kingston matches over the last few years. Matches with Dolph Ziggler and Daniel Bryan specifically have been nothing short of great.
[adinserter block=”1″]I’d like to see Kofi get a lengthy run as champion. I’d also like to see this morph into a WWE championship program with CM Punk, should Punk retain against Ryback at Hell in a Cell. I think Punk and Kofi could have some really good matches. Kofi has never been able to break through to that top echelon, sans a very brief program at the top with Randy Orton.
Thanks to You Tube the WWE has posted the remaining minutes of the match online. I wouldn’t call it necessarily a classic match, but it was exciting for what it was. It was also nice to see the WWE throw a title change up on something other than a pay per view or WWE RAW.
Enjoy the match and let’s hope for a lengthy reign of Kofi Kingston as I-C champion.
