It’s been well reported that plans change often in WWE and while most would think the wrestlers would know what they are doing on television in advance by being informed by an agent or official, that’s not often the case.
Kofi Kingston noted in an interview with 106.1 KMEL that he found out what he was doing on this past Monday’s Raw, which was working an eight-man tag team match, through social media.
“Oh yeah, a lot of people ask us this all the time and you would be surprised. Usually, as performers, we are the last one’s to find things out. This week and last week, I found out on Twitter what I was doing on Raw. It was announced I would be in an eight-man tag team match and I was like, ‘Oh, good to know. I need ta prepare.’
Same thing last week when we had the tag team turmoil, I had no idea until I looked on social media and I saw it. If I didn’t look on social media, I wouldn’t have known until I got to the building. Oftentimes, we have no idea what the show is going to intel, what we’re going to be doing on the show, and even then when we do know then things change.”
Kingston called it a bittersweet thing about being a WWE star, but thinks it is a good thing as it keeps everyone on their toes.
