Kingston started his Royal Rumble journey with Dolph Ziggler in 2009. Now both of them achieve that feet of participating in 11 consecutive Royal Rumble matches.
Dolph Ziggler keeps his record alive because he already announced his entry in the 2021 Royal Rumble matches. He also steps closer to Kane’s Royal Rumble streak of appearing in 13 consecutive Royal Rumble matches. But Kofi Kingston is injured right now. So he is no longer to take a part in this year’s Royal Rumble match.

“You never say never in WWE. We had an opportunity and moment in time where Drew Mcintyre was found to be Covid positive. And could not appear as he was in quarantine. I got the call. Every time you get the opportunity to show up in front of WWE fans. Even though not in person, you hate to pass up on that opportunity. As far as a one-off is concerned, we’ll see but right now I am focused on Superstar Spectacle. We’ll see as far as me stepping back in the ring.”
