Kofi Kingston names WWE NXT wrestlers he would like to wrestle, says Big E will win a major singles title and more


Kofi Kingston is having the time of his life as WWE Champion but he's still humble enough to put over some of the up-and-coming talent including wrestlers on the NXT roster.

We asked Kofi which wrestler from NXT he would love to step in the ring with.

He said, "I get this question all the time and it's impossible to pick just one. I mean, Velveteen Dream, Tommaso Ciampa, Adam Cole...there's so much talent down there. I think it's a really special time. They're so good that they are getting to be on national television now on USA..."

He added the NXT move to USA will only make everyone better. He said, "It's gonna make them that much better because they've had a lot of time to grind and they are very comfortable being in front of TV. They've built their own brand so I think it's gonna be great for them. The more exposure the better..."

Big E and Xavier Woods are the SmackDown Tag Team Champions but some fans have wondered about Big E possibly breaking out as a singles star and challenging for a major singles title in the future. Kofi said, "Yea, eventually man. He deserves it. He's got a belt right now."

Kingston continued, "E and Woods both. Honestly, all of us are already in the Hall Of Fame, not to toot my own horn or whatever. The New Day, we've already done so many significant things. E and Woods are incredibly talented individuals. I'm so blessed to have been grouped with these guys and to have met these guys ... There's big things always."

Kofi also talked about his pre-match routine which includes pancakes and Tic Tacs. Check out what he said in the video below.
