WWE: WWE recently announced that his tag team partner Xavier Woods will be included in place of Kofi Kingston in the Fatal 5 Way IC Championship qualifying match to be held on SmackDown this week. Already happened.
Apart from this, Drew McIntyre, L.A. Knight, Carrion Cross, and Sheamus are going to participate in this match. Let me tell you, this match was made official after the brawl between these superstars on SmackDown last week.
The winner of this match will get a chance to compete in an IC Championship match against Gunther at WrestleMania 39. Kofi Kingston was ruled out of the match because of an injury he sustained during a segment on the blue brand last week.
Now Xavier Woods has been given a chance in his place in this match. Although the company did not announce Kofi Kingston’s injury, it has been confirmed through social media posts that Kofi has hurt his right leg.
