Kofi Kingston Talks About Being Bullied At School, The Best of WWE Magazine

The Sydney Morning Herald has an article on Kofi Kingston, who recalls being a victim of bullying when he was a child.

“When I went to school I was definitely bullied,” Kingston told the children who are part of Underdogs, a Sydney, Australia based anti-bullying support group. “I wasn’t the biggest guy, I grew up in a town [in America] that was affluent – a lot of people had a lot – and while my family wasn’t what you’d call not well off, we didn’t have what others had.

“So, it was tough. For me, growing up was just a matter of dealing with it. You’d try to fight it but there were some days I didn’t want to go to school and come across certain people because I didn’t want the conflict.”

The article on Kingston’s anti-bullying efforts is available here.

WWE Magazine has compiled a “Best of” special issue, a collection of their all-time favorite Superstar portraits, interviews picture galleries, posters, columns, news stories and more. Also enclosed is a collectible poster showcasing the roster of Raw on one side and SmackDown on the other. The magazine is currently on newsstands.

— Monday’s issue of The Sporting News has a story on fathers and sons who were pro athletes, and James and Joe Laurinaitis (a/k/a Road Warrior Animal) are mentioned. The WWE Hall of Famer is dressed up like his son in a St. Louis Rams uniform and James is dressed up in a Road Warriors ensemble.

    I wonder what Bulley Ray has to say about this?

    At least Kofi’s anti-bullying message isn’t bullshit like “B. A. Star”. I mean, the Bella Twins against bullying?

  • Henry MacIntyre

    Vince was probably a bully in school.

    This is the kinda thing I want to hear from WWE’s Be A Star program. I dont want to see HHH on a red carpet. I want to hear from guys like rey and big show who probably got shit growing up for being different. Or I want to hear from guys who might have been bullies in school and now regret it.
