Brock Lesnar is certainly one of the most decorated and accomplished pro wrestlers in the history of the business. Throughout his two runs with WWE, The Beast Incarnate ruled with an iron fist, with barely anyone being able to keep up with him. He also squashed Kofi Kingston a few years ago and it seems he helped Kingston make the most money in the least amount of time.

On the inaugural episode of WWE Smackdown on FOX, which aired on October 4, 2019, Brock Lesnar took on Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship. The match ended abruptly when Lesnar defeated Kingston in just seven seconds, causing a stir among fans and raising questions about the booking decision.

Fans were infuriated and disappointed at this result due to the fact that Kofi Kingston had worked hard to become the WWE Champion at that year’s WrestleMania and did not have a title reign worthy of him.

While speaking during a recent interview on the Out of Character podcast, Kofi Kingston talked about the aforementioned match against Brock Lesnar. Kingston revealed that the match made him the most money in the least amount of time, apart from the Royal Rumble match last year.


“The F5 from Brock, I think a lot of people were surprised with how quickly it happened, you know? I don’t get paid by the hour, so (…) it was the most money I’ve made in the least amount of time, aside from the Rumble last year.”

That squash match was used as a way to introduce Cain Velasquez during SmackDown’s FOX debut. In the end, it only resulted in one Saudi Arabian match for Cain and Brock. Then WWE released Velasquez a short time later, so many fans feel it was all for nothing. Regardless, at least Kingston got a great payday out of it if nothing else.
