Kofi knew that life was not for him.
Tonight, SmackDown Live will emanate from the Amway Center in Orlando, FL and among the many segments and matches on tap for tonight's show, a tag team title shot is on the line as The New Day and The Bar will renew their rivalry one more time and the two teams will compete to determine who will go on to SummerSlam to challenge The Bludgeon Brothers for the SmackDown Live Tag Team Championships.
Ahead of the bout, New Day member and former four-time WWE Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston spoke with Jay Reddick of the Orlando Sentinel about chasing his dream of becoming a professional wrestler. Prior to Kofi emerging into the business, he was working the "cubicle life" and from the moment when Kofi got his first opportunity to get in the squared circle, he knew that was the life for him.
“As soon as I walked in, I looked at those two rings right there and I knew this was where I was supposed to be,” Kingston said. “That gym has a very particular essence, and I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about it right now. …It was an epiphany moment. I knew I was going to give it my all and I knew it was going to work out.”
Also on tap for tonight's SmackDown Live is a tag team match featuring two of the women involved in the SummerSlam SmackDown Live Women's Championship match. To take a look at the updated lineup for the "Biggest Party Of The Summer", click here.
