Last night on RAW, Kofi Kingston made a surprise in-ring return, winning his match against Fandango.
Kingston had been absent from WWE since June. His character was written out when he suffered (kayfabe) injuries from Ryback on an episode of Smackdown. In reality, Kofi Kingston took a little time off to heal up some nagging injuries, and celebrate the birth of his first child.
Kingston had still been featured prominently on Pay-Per-View pre-shows and post-shows during his time off.
