KOFI KINGSTON TELLS MARIA MENOUNOS THE QUARANTINE MIGHT EXTEND HIS WWE CAREER, HE NEVER IMAGINED A MANIA WITH NO AUDIENCE, AND ADMITS HE HAS NO TVS IN HIS HOME
TODAY on Maria Menounos’ Daytime Show Better Together, Kofi Kingston shared his thoughts on how quarantine will affect his future WWE career, his recent contract re-sign with The New Day, AND how he never imagined a Wrestlemania without a crowd.
TIME OFF IN QUARANTINE COULD EXTEND KOFI’S WWE CAREER: “Time off is so rare its like few and far between. I mean, you know, just as the world. We never had this kind of situation particularly for WWE Superstars. Honestly ever since I got with [Xaiver] Woods and [Big] E, the level of fun that I’ve been having over the past six years we’ve been together now…I’ve never go to working feeling like “I’ve had enough” or “I’m worn down” because I know I’m going to be having fun in the ring. So at this point in my career, as long as I’m having fun, I’m um going to keep doing it as long as I can.
THE NEW DAY RECENTLY RENEWED THEIR CONTRACTS: We just re-signed our contracts..um..or signed new contract extensions a little while ago so, we’re here for a little bit, you know? There’s still some gas left in the tank.
KOFI SAYS WE NEVER EXPECTED TO DO WRESTLEMANIA WITH NO CROWD: We always talk about, like, “hey you know, it doesn’t matter…how many people are in the crowd! We could be doing it in front of no people, or we could be doing it in front of a million people. We’re still going to go out and get the energy. Never did we ever imagine that we’d have to actually HAVE to do Wrestlemania in front of no people. The saying actually held up, you know!…We go all out man, it’s still wrestlemania…It’s different for sure with no crowd, but for myself being involved with the ladder match, you know…we all want so badly to steal the show every single time, and we have great chemistry.
DESPITE HAVING NO SCREENS AT HIS HOUSE, KOFI IS WATCHING TIGER KING ON NETFLIX: We don’t really have screens at the house, we did make an exception for Joe Exotic…Tiger King. [My kids] don’t really understand the gravity of the whole situation, like the whole scenario, so, um, yeah. We very, very rarely will have our kids watch, maybe like a movie on Netflix.
