It’s a New Day, yes it is … at least for the history books — as Kofi Kingston now holds the records for superstar with the most days as tag team champion in WWE.
WWE’s India Twitter account brought attention to the record after they congratulated Kingston on beating previous record holders Billy Gunn and Mr. Fuji.
Kofi’s new record is 954 days, surpassing Gunn’s previous record of 953 days.
Kingston has held the WWE tag team titles on eight different occasions. This includes breaking the record for longest reigning tag team champions as a member of the New Day in 2016 by holding the titles for a consecutive 483 days.
His tag partner Big E tweeted about the new record, writing: “[Kofi Kingston] has the most days as a tag team champion in the history of WWE. Never failed a drug test. Never had a brush with the law. Always a professional to the highest degree. Give this man his flowers while he can still smell them.”
It's official! @TrueKofi is the #WWESuperstar with the most days as a Tag Team Champion in @WWE!
No wonder, @WWEBigE & @XavierWoodsPhD hold him in such high regard! Congratulations from #India. pic.twitter.com/Yol9uZvF5T
