Kofi Kingston and R-Truth split up, no longer working as a tag team

The short-lived but relatively successful tag team of Kofi Kingston and R-Truth is no more. The two have officially split.


The tag team division may be experiencing something of a resurgence in WWE but it will do so with one less team in the mix.

That's because Kofi Kingston and R-Truth have officially split up.

They both had separate segments on last night's (Oct. 8, 2012) episode of Monday Night Raw and after the show, posted a video with the two explaining why they're going their separate ways.


"We're definitely a little upset (about getting eliminated in the tag team title tournament) but when we first became a tag team, our goal was to set the tag team division on fire and that's exactly where we're at right now. So, mission accomplished."


"Where we're at right now is there's things I want to do with Little Jimmy. I want to take him around and do things. Kofi's a great, excellent wrestler by himself, he wants to get into some solo stuff."

Kofi once more:

"As does Truth. We want to take on the singles career. We want do do big things."

And there you have it, Cagesiders.
