The Independent has a new interview with Kofi Kingston, who was promoting the upcoming WWE tour in the U.K. in November, as well as the Hell In A Cell pay-per-view. Here are some highlights:
NXT Champion Adrian Neville: “Some of the things he does are just incredible, he calls himself the man that gravity forgot, and he just defies gravity with everything he does. For me, as a fan, I think he’s going to be one of the greatest of all time when he gets it all going. As a performer I would love to get in there with him and mix it up, I think our styles would mesh well and produce a great match for the people watching.”
His new stable with Big E and Xavier Woods: “I’m always trying to climb the ladder, and right now myself, Big E and Xavier Woods are trying to get a team off the ground. We have been having a lot of matches on live events, and we are trying to get something going. If ,and when it does take off, it should be very entertaining, and something people can get behind. As of now, we’re just three smart athletic friends hanging out and having a good time. As a matter of fact, when we come to the UK I’ll be teaming with Big E, and Xavier will probably be there too as we’ll be taking on the Wyatt Family. It’s awesome, I tell everyone that the UK is one of my favorite places to go.”
Wanting the WWE World Heavyweight Championship: “That’s what everyone always strives for. Myself, I always tell people that if you’re not getting better you’re only getting worse, and every day I try and be better than yesterday. The ultimate goal in mind being to be WWE World Heavyweight Champion. That’s what you always strive for, and if you don’t believe that you can then you probably shouldn’t be in WWE.”
Kofi also discussed the WWE Performance Center, one of his favorite matches, Chris Jericho and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
