Kofi Kingston: I Take Pride In Pushing Through And Putting Smiles On Faces

With most sports shutting down during the coronavirus pandemic, WWE has moved forward, holding events at the Performance Center.

On April 4 and 5, WWE will hold a two-night WrestleMania at the Performance Center and other locations. The event was taped with no live audience. And while there has been some backlash among fans and critics aimed at WWE for its "show must go on" mentality, Kofi Kingston is proud of what WWE had been able to do.

"Number one I wanna say that, you know, WWE has done a great job in terms of following like CDC guidelines. In terms of people being in close contact. Number one having the matches and the shows without fans in the crowd. We also only had essential personnel in the building. We have taken all the proper precautions to kind of, you know, protect ourselves and the people that we hold dear - the WWE Universe," Kofi told Rick Ucchino of Sportskeeda.

He continued, "One of the greatest things about WWE, and I take so much pride in being a WWE Superstar for this reason, is that we do push through and we put genuine smiles on people's faces."

Kingston is scheduled to team with Big E to challenge for the SmackDown Tag Team Titles against John Morrison & The Miz and The Usos in a triple threat ladder match at WrestleMania 36.
