Even Superman had to take off his hood every now and then and be square old Clark Kent.
After failing to score another spectacular physical performance on Saturday night to avoid elimination in a Royal Rumble match, Kofi Kingston took to social media to comment on the unfortunate circumstances that unfolded during his latest attempt.
During the 35th annual Men’s Royal Rumble contest at The Dome at America’s Center in St. Louis. Louis, Missouri this past weekend, the former WWE champion was launched over the rope and out to the ring side area, where he tried to cling to Spiderman. the barrier to prevent it from being eliminated.
Unfortunately for the New Day, member had more of a Clark Kent night than a Superman night.
Kingston would sail from the ring to the barrier and try his best to hold on, only to end up with his feet touching the surface of the ground outside the ring. What became an annual tradition of the longtime WWE veteran did not go as planned and due to the fact that it appeared prominently on the live broadcast, the call was made to handle the situation like the shoot it was .
Kofi Kingston was eliminated instead of an on-the-fly call like the one WWE made with the Shawn Michaels situation in 1995 when he was thrown overboard and his feet grazed across the floor, causing the decision makers at the time asked referees to review the slow action repeat.
After the show, Kingston went on social media to comment on giving the venue its best chance at the 35th annual Royal Rumble contest in St. Louis. Louis, MO. this past Saturday night.
“Weep,” Kingston wrote via his official Twitter page. He followed up by referring to the clichéd quote that says, “It is better to try and fail than never to try.”
