Kofi Kingston officially became the longest-reigning WWE Tag Team Champion in history with 542 collective days and counting. Kingston recently spoke with WWE.com about the record. Here are the highlights.
Congratulations are in order. You broke the record!
Yeah, it’s a pretty cool accolade. It’s one that kind of crept up. There was one guy on Twitter that was counting down, and all of a sudden today everyone seems to be rejoicing that I am such a good friend as a tag team partner.
Speaking of New Day, the longest single WWE Tag Team Title reign is a record that’s within your reach. Have you talked about the possibility of breaking that as well?
We’ve been celebrating since the day we won because we’re going to be champions until the end of time. When the actual record gets broken, it’ll just be another day of the week for us. It’s been our expectation. We feel we’re the best tag team in a very long time, probably in the history of WWE. We try to steal the show regardless of where we are on the show. ’Long as you put a mic in our hands and a camera in front of us and turn that red light on, we know that we’re going to be the most entertaining thing that you see.
