Some Fascinating Kofi Kingston Math

kofi kingston

I was surfing through the Squared Circle subreddit earlier, and I came across a thread entitled, “If you turn on WWE programming to any random day within the last 5 years, there is about a 40% chance that Kofi Kingston is the tag team champion.” It came from redditor¬†RoidingOldMan, who took it upon himself to do the necessary math.

I’ll let him take it from here:

Kofi won his first WWE Tag Team Championship with Evan Bourne on August 22nd 2011 (about 1800 days ago). Since that day Kofi has held the title 4 different times for a combined 687+ days.

After the initial post, RoidingOldMan responded with some more math:

Just did a little more math. Between Kofi’s reigns as United States, Intercontinental, WWE Tag Team, and World Tag Team Champions. Added together he’s at 1,209 days and counting as champion of something. Kofi’s first title was won June 29th 2008. Which was about 8 years, 2 months ago. Almost exactly 3,000 days.

Which means if you turn on WWE programming to any random day in the last 8 years 2 months, there’s about a 40% chance that Kofi Kingston was a champion of something.

A reply:

That’s actually really impressive.

I’d be interested to know what the chance would be of John Cena being champion since his first reign.

Some more fascinating math:

Since March 2004, John Cena has been a champion of some kind 41% of the time.

1,869 days combined reign. First reign began roughly 4,530 days ago.

Math has never been more interesting!

Seriously though, those numbers are insane. Not for Cena. That wasn’t a surprise. Kofi though.

Think about that math. If you turn on any WWE programming from the last 8 years and 2 months, there’s about a 40% chance that Kofi Kingston was holding a championship title of some sort.¬†As the one reply says, that’s really impressive.

Now let’s get that storyline where New Day puts forth an effort to get Kofi the WWE Universal Championship (since they’re on RAW). If anyone deserves a reign at the top, it’s Mr. 24/7. He’s been putting on consistently great performances on a big stage since 2007 when he debuted on WWECW. He’s won all the other titles. Give him the highest prize!
