Kofi Kingston is now the WWE Champion after working very hard to get where he is. In the early days of his career, CM Punk helped him a lot and the two became good friends.
While speaking to ACWrestling, Kofi Kingston talked about CM Punk taking him under his wing when he really had no reason to. The two had a splendid time together and though CM Punk has left WWE and cut all ties with the company, Kofi Kingston kept on praising Punk.
“I was Tag Team Champions with CM Punk, which was awesome because I learned so much from him. He was one of the guys who took me under his wing when he didn’t have to. I was always grateful for that friendship. Being tag team partners with R-Truth is always fun. He’s always making you laugh. Every moment we had together was always fun. Evan Bourne, same thing. Super cool and athletic. We would try to out-do each other. It was an awesome experience to see him up-close-and-personal. I can’t possibly pick a favorite.”
Kofi Kingston will forever be grateful to Punk for all he did to help him in his career. While it is highly unlikely Punk will ever return to the WWE, Kofi will still want his old friend back.
