It wasn’t just the WWE Universe who were upset about the way Kofi Kingston‘s WWE Title reign ended; Dax Harwood didn’t like it either.
On the latest episode of FTR with Dax Harwood, the first-ever episode of WWE SmackDown on FOX was discussed. When it was brought up that Brock Lesnar squashed Kofi Kingston in the main event for the WWE Championship in a matter of seconds, Harwood spoke about how much that upset him.
“I was very, very upset,” Dax Harwood revealed. “I remember that I texted Kofi, and actually it was a group text with the three of them, The New Day and myself and Dan [Cash Wheeler], and I apologized to him and said, I’m so sorry this happened to you, man. We’re so upset. I can’t believe this is for real. Not because of obviously anything with Brock but how much we had worked and how hard he had worked to get to this point.
“Dude, especially when we were working with him, with Randy, I saw him outside of Vince’s office or go into Vince’s office every single week to try to make things better, to try to make his championship run better. He worked so hard to be a great champion, and I think a lot of people, maybe they think, oh, man, his championship run wasn’t successful because, you know, whatever.
“It wasn’t for lack of trying because I saw him every week, man. Try his damnedest to make something of nothing, and it broke all of our hearts, the whole locker room. It broke all of our hearts that that’s where the championship was being taken. Because not anything to do with Brock. But because Kofi had worked so hard. And seeing someone work so hard for so long to get this opportunity taken away from him.”
