WWE.com recently interviewed WWE Superstar and New Day member Kofi Kingston. Below are some highlights.
Kingston on if he has a favorite moment in his runs as tag champ: “I don’t know if I can put a finger on a favorite moment. All I know is that every moment we’ve had as The New Day has been amazing. Just awesome. Literally, traveling around with my best friends and doing the things we do backstage on television. It’s been a wild run. The journey before the actual journey is something we talked about on “Table For 3.” But even that half-hour show didn’t fully describe the trials and tribulation we had to endure to get to where we are.”
Kingston on how the team has celebrated since they won the belts: “We’ve been celebrating since the day we won, because we’re going to be champions until the end of time. When the actual record gets broken, it’ll just be another day of the week for us. It’s been our expectation. We feel we’re the best tag team in a very long time, probably in the history of WWE. We try to steal the show regardless of where we are on the show. ’Long as you put a mic in our hands and a camera in front of us and turn that red light on, we know that we’re going to be the most entertaining thing that you see.”
Kingston on passing the record for which former WWE Superstar John Morrison held the title: “Ah, yeah, man! Morrison and I are still pretty tight. A lot of people compare us because we have pretty similar builds and athletic prowess, especially when it comes to the Royal Rumble Match. Morrison is the guy who kind of started that all. Luckily, he left, so I’ve never had much competition in terms of having to outdo somebody. [Laughs] To pass Morrison on this totem pole is a pretty cool thing, just because I respect him as a performer and as a person. It’s a cool thing to take the torch from a guy like that.”
