In July 2020, Kofi Kingston talked about the unique condition of his chest. Speaking on The New Day’s Feel The Power podcast, Kofi discussed how The Big Show wounded his chest with his vicious chops in 2009. He claimed that his chest was never the same again after this incident.

Many people seemed to believe the statement, but it wasn’t true at all. Kofi keeps busting fake theories about his sunken chest from time to time. While The Big Show is indeed known for his dangerous chops, it was clear that he was not responsible for Kofi’s condition.

Kofi was actually playing with these so-called internet experts, who keep making fake theories about his unusual appearance.

In 2019, several theories began floating around that Kofi Kingston had a pectus excavatum or concave chest. It is a medical condition in which a person’s breastbone sinks into the chest. This problem could be caused by birth or could develop after puberty.

However, the former WWE Champion cleared the air about this rumor through an informative tweet. As explained in the tweet posted below, Kofi’s condition has nothing to do with Pectus excavatum. He does not have a concave chest as believed by many.

Instead, his pectoral muscles have a very unusual structure as they are connected closer to the sides of his sternum instead of the usual center position. Fortunately, Kofi Kingston’s caved-in chest has not affected his wrestling performances in any way.
