Why Kofi Kingston Doesn’t Want To Talk About His Milestones?



Has there ever been a better tag team partner than Kofi Kingston? History says no. The Dreadlocked Dynamo is both the longest-reigning individual Tag Team Champion in WWE history by a wide margin and one-third of the longest reigning Tag Team Champions of all time.

Kingston doesn’t want to talk about any of that, however. We tried to ask him, but Kofi’s dedication has gone beyond his own accolades now. He’d rather focus on what he, Big E and Xavier Woods just accomplished and, more importantly, on what they have yet to achieve. Ask Kofi Few Question and Here’re the highlights:

WWE.COM: Congratulations. You’re running out of tag team records to break.

KOFI KINGSTON: Ha! I guess, yeah.

WWE.COM: Did you even know this milestone was something you could achieve?

KINGSTON: I had no idea. I don’t think we look at accomplishments that deeply in terms of pursuing them. We usually find out on Twitter. Like, “Hey! Did you guys know you’re the only ones to win the Raw and SmackDown [Tag Team] Titles?” It’s pretty cool when you sit back and look at it, but it’s weird; the more time that passes, we keep attaining these unsettable goals, if that makes sense. Hosting WrestleMania is not something set for yourself when you’re a kid. You don’t say, “One day, I’m going to host WrestleMania, and this is my goal; I’m going to work toward it.” It just happened. Same thing with winning this championship title. It’s a very strange stat to be celebrating. You don’t set these goals, but we’re very fortunate to have had these things happen to us.


WWE.COM: You’re one of the few Superstars on the current roster who can say they held the original World Tag Team Championship. What’s it like having that as part of your legacy?

KINGSTON: Honestly, it’s all cool and everything, for sure. Since I’m still here and still doing this, it’s hard to reminisce about the things I’ve done or things in the past. It’s not something I really think about, but since you asked me, I will say it’s definitely cool.
