Exclusive: Former WWE U.S. & IC Champ Expected to Undergo Character & Booking Change

Justin LaBar

kofi kingstonWZ has learned from sources in WWE that a character change is expected for Kofi Kingston.

We've been told a change in both entrance music and booking is expected in the future weeks for Kingston. It's not clear what direction WWE creative is aiming for in terms of him being a heel or face, or who he will work with, but he's become a priority in WWE creative meetings as a talent to use more of.

As seen tonight on Raw, Kingston defeated WWE World Champion Randy Orton, which we have been told is the first sign that change is coming for the former U.S. and Intercontinental Champion.

We will continue to bring you more information as it becomes available.
