We noted yesterday that longtime WWE star Kofi Kingston broke the company record for most days as a Tag Team Champion. Kingston thanked all of his current and former partners from the WWE squared circle on Twitter after the announcement. Of course, one of those partners was former WWE star-turned mixed martial artist CM Punk.
Punk actually responded to Kingston’s thanks with kiss emoji and GIF. Check it out here:
“What a strange accomplishment, lol. Nonetheless, I’m thankful and grateful for all the teammates I’ve had along this crazy journey. Salute!”
