Video: Kofi Kingston botches finish in Miz match on WWE Raw; delivers a brutal head kick

Ouch! Kofi Kingston botches his finisher, the Trouble in Paradise, during a match with The Miz, which results in Miz getting kicked really, really hard straight in the face.

"WHAT A BLOW!"

"THAT'S GOTTA HURT!"

It's really too bad Vince McMahon wasn't at the commentary desk during last night's (Oct. 15, 2012) match between Kofi Kingston and The Miz because if he was, he would have had the opportunity to fire off one of those zingers from the legendary WrestleMania arcade game.

That's because Kingston, Mr. High Flying Risk Taker, botched the finish of the match by actually delivering his Trouble in Paradise kick. When I say "actually delivering," I mean he hit Miz so hard in the face, he shoot dropped to the mat and started bleeding out of his forehead.

Talk about reckless.

This also comes on the eve of Kingston's planned title shot against Miz for the Intercontinental belt during the Main Event tapings later tonight in Memphis.

The head kick comes at the 2:47 mark.
