Speaking to ACWrestling, Kofi discussed the positives of each of his former partners.

"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."

Kingston remains part of New Day but is currently thriving as WWE Champion. He is scheduled to defend his title against Dolph Ziggler this Sunday at WWE Stomping Grounds.
