Kofi Kingston gives emotional first interview as WWE Champion By Amish Patel - April 8, 2019 Nicholas Giambattista This is what hard work in the WWE pays off is all about. Kofi fought for 11 years to become WWE champion. I also think this will be the end of the New Day I think Big E will get move during the WWE Shake Up as he probably a guy who could become World Champion. oppa When I watched this match, I saw people of all races, colors and backgrounds cheering and crying for this man’s victory. When I go only, I see a bunch of racist complaining or saying that they hope Black people will “shut up now”. Bottom line, for a rushed story, this was excellent story telling with an emotional outcome that should have happened at WrestleMania. I’m happy for Kofi and for E and Woods who told us all along that Kofi would one day be the WWE champion.
