Kofi Kingston was supposed to compete in a Fatal Five-Way match to determine the No. 1 contender for Gunther’s IC Title at WrestleMania last week on SmackDown.

Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer reported that Kofi Kingston suffered a broken ankle during the brawl on the March 3rd episode of SmackDown.
