Kofi Kingston joined Xavier Woods in Outsiders style wrestling attire on WWE Raw last night, and Kevin Nash has responded to the tribute.
Woods first donned the gear at this year’s SummerSlam, where his toothpick and mid-curled hair made him look like Scott Hall. With Kingston not a part of the biggest show of the summer, we had to wait until this week’s Raw to see the full image.
As part of the tag team turmoil match to decide new number one contenders to the Raw Tag Team Championships, The New Day ran through a number of teams in the early going of the match but it was the attire which drew a lot of the attention.
In an effort to imitate Nash’s look at Bash At The Beach 1996 when Hulk Hogan joined Hall and Nash to form the nWo, ‘Big Kofi Cool’ donned red trousers and a leather vest.
The match was originally halted after Mace and T-BAR attacked Woods and Kingston after being eliminated. When the match resumed, The New Day duo eventually fell to AJ Styles and Omos, who only lost to eventual winners Bobby Lashley and MVP.
Today, Kevin Nash has taken to social media to show his appreciation for the tribute.
@TrueKofi Thank you so much for the love tonight. It was amazing to watch that gear in actual motion. Always wondered what it would look like.
Haha 🐺 4 Life!
You da man big bro! ✊🏾
