Kofi Kingston Says Positive Interaction With Fans Keep His Career Going

It really comes back to the Power of Positivity for Kofi Kingston.

Kofi Kingston has been on the main roster of WWE television for 14 years. In those 14 years, Kofi Kingston has won several Intercontinental championships, several United States Championships, stamped his legacy as one of the most winningest Tag Team Champions of all time, and defeated Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35.

With 14 years on television, and 8 years with Xavier Woods and Big E in The New Day, the question for Kofi Kingston becomes, what is left?

Speaking on the Bart Winkler show, Kofi Kingston explained that he understands there is a finite amount of time he can wrestle but what keeps him going is the positive interactions he continues to have with the WWE Universe.

"Man, I think it's just the interactions with the people [that keeps him going]. I really do enjoy going out there and meeting the people that make us tick," Kofi explains. "I enjoy that energy and I enjoy being a part of a positive influence on people's lives. So being able to go out and put smiles on people's faces never gets old, it's pretty awesome to be able to do that in the wrestling ring. For me, this has always been my childhood dream, this is all I've ever wanted to do since I was a kid. I'm very lucky that I can still go out and do that on a nightly basis, you know, on a weekly basis, and I just really do love that energy. I know that it is a kind of a finite period of time that we have in our careers to be able to do this. So I'd like to stretch that out for as long as I can. Now, to be able to do it like in front of my children, and they get to see what daddy does is really cool, too. So yeah, it's a combination of all those things, but mainly, it’s just the positive vibe that we're able to put out, and the positive influence that we're able to have on people."

While his WWE career has been filled with a number of highs, there is also a fair share of lows. On March 11, Big E broke his neck and Kofi Kingston recently described the moment as the scariest moment of his career. Read more here.
