Kofi Kingston on the NXT superstars he would like to face and more

WWE Champion Kofi Kingston spoke to WrestlingNewsCo, where he talked about his reign as WWE Champion. Kofi mentioned he felt like a kid in a candy store, regarding him being at the top of the company.



“I just so happen to have it right here. I keep it in this sack, I whip it out like Jake The Snake. You know what I’m saying? I whip it out and give you a little taste, a little taste! I don’t want to make a scene here,” Kofi joked as he glanced around. It never gets old, man. I’m a kid in a candy store.”

With NXT making its debut on the USA Network on September 18th, Kingston talked about some of the NXT superstars he would like to face off against.

“I get this question all the time and it’s impossible to pick just one,” Kofi explained. “I mean, Velveteen Dream, Tomasso Ciampa, Adam Cole, there’s so much talent down there. I think it’s a really special time. Especially, they’re so good that they’re getting to be on national television now. On USA, coming up. It’s going to 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 bult their own brand, so I think it’s going to be great for them. The more exposure, the better. I think the more people that can know about the talent that’s down there.”

Kingston also talked about the routine he follows before performing in front of the fans. Here is what he said:

“I just kind of walk around. I used to do a lot of push ups and pump myself up; now, it’s just a matter of turning on ‘the switch’,” Kofi said. “I make sure our pancakes our ripe. Our chef, Mr. Bootyworth, he has all the pancakes and he’s individually tests all of them. I make sure [Xavier] Woods and [Big] E are alright. I get some orange Tic Tacs that we have at the beginning of the Gorilla Position, throw a bunch of them in my mouth, swirl them around, chew them up, and then walk out there. That’s pretty much it, you know?”
