WWE Superstar and New Day member Kofi Kingston spoke to Planeta Wrestling about several professional wrestling topics. The former Intercontinental Champion talked about if he thinks The New Day will one day be gifted with WWE Hall Of Fame rings, and if this is the best time in his professional wrestling career.
Check out some of the highlights below:
If The New Day will one day be WWE Hall Of Famers:
“Well, I’m not trying to come across as a cocky comment or anything like that, but I think that we’re already – we’re kind of already in there. From our accolades alone, I feel like we’re the longest reigning champions in all of WWE, I think we’ve been able to do some historic things in the ring, very entertaining segments – we’ve been in there with The Rock, now we’ve been in there with Vince McMahon, we’ve had amazing matches with The Usos.
“So if it’s up to me and I’m voting, I’m already putting us in there, you know what I mean? I guess we’ll see though, we’ll take it one day at a time and kind of see what happens. If I was a betting man, I would put your money on the New Day being in the Hall of Fame someday.”
Is this the best time in his professional wrestling career:
“Well, I guess we’ll find out. It certainly is very exciting to be in this position. Last week, being able to go toe-to-toe with Vince McMahon on the mic, to me that’s a sign that you’ve made it. That you’re on the right path. Not many people get to do that. For me, to be in the ring with Vince, it’s awesome.
“I’m really not one to look back on a lot of the things that we’ve done, and really I just enjoy it to the fullest because I think we have a lot more to do and we have a lot more great moments ahead. So, yeah, it definitely is a very exciting time. The WWE Universe, like I said before, is so behind me and it’s an awesome feeling to be able to go on social media and see all of the positive feedback in terms of what people want to see, and how we’re able to deliver that to them. It’s still going on right now, so it’s hard to say, but it’s definitely an exciting time.”
