On the latest episode of their Feel The Power podcast, The New Day’s Kofi Kingston revealed he “just” signed a new five year contract with WWE. That will keep the Grand Slam champion with the company until he’s 43 years old.

Aside from a few months working independents in New England, WWE is the only company Kingston has worked for. He signed his first deal with them in 2006, and since then has held the United States, Intercontinental, and World, WWE/Raw & SmackDown Tag titles. At WrestleMania 35, he became the first African-born person to win the WWE title.

Kofi’s a sure-fire Hall of Famer, and could go in twice if WWE opted to enshrine him as a singles act and along with Xavier Woods & Big E as The New Day.

It now looks increasingly likely he won’t work anywhere else, either.
