Facts and News related to  Kofi Kingston:

  • Kofi Kingston began his career at the independent circuit. However, unlike other WWE stars who have to struggle a lot to make it to the WWE, Kofi was hired by the company within a few months after his debut.
  • In his first main roster match, Kofi Kingston defeated Chris Jericho for the Intercontinental Championship, thereby becoming the first ever ‘Ghanaian wrestler’ to hold a championship in the WWE.
  • Kofi Kingston is an expert in Brazilian martial art of ‘Capoeira’. Notably, ‘Capoeira’ requires a lot of agility in order to take out opponents with various spin kicks while distracting them with flips.
  • For around 7 years, Kofi was ‘advertised’ as a Jamaican. However, when Ghana, progressed in the FIFA World Cup in 2014, WWE wasted no time in flaunting his Ghanaian ancestry.
  • Royal Rumble stands a testimony to Kofi’s skills, as he pulls off something unbelievable everytime he steps in the PPV ‘main event’. A polite reminder- for a wrestler to be eliminated from the Royal Rumble Battle Royal match, he should be thrown off the top rope and both his feet should touch the ground.
  • He loves sporting tattoos and has quite ‘a few’ on his body. Notably, the ones running along his spine represent his African pride.
  • Kofi is a very close friend of former WWE superstar, CM Punk
