WWE Champion Kofi Kingston spoke to Sport 360 to discuss a variety of professional wrestling topics. Kingston discussed soon returning to his home country of Ghana as the WWE Champion, and being excited that former Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is the current “Mr. Money In The Bank.”
Check out the highlights below:
Returning to his home country of Ghana as WWE Champion:
The last time I was there was 1993 or 1994. I had the chance to go back after my third year in college – my dad took a bunch of people from college over to Ghana every summer and I opted not to go as I wanted to file for jobs and get ready for real life as an adult, and it’s one of my biggest regrets that I didn’t go.
Being excited that Brock Lesnar is “Mr. Money In The Bank”:
Contrary to a lot of people’s opinions I’m really excited about Brock Lesnar being Mr. Money in the Bank. For me personally as WWE Champion, it took so long to get here and that was a mountain to climb, but getting to the top is just the beginning. I don’t want to just be any old WWE Champion.
I want to be remembered as one of the greatest of all time. Brock Lesnar is unquestionably a Hall of Famer. He is somebody who you hear their name and you just feel something, you get emotional. Some people get scared, some get excited, but he is one of the guys who has been around a while and made a huge impact on WWE and culture in general.
To go up against Brock and beat him would be amazing and solidify my legacy and be another notch on my belt as far as being WWE Champion is concerned.
