As big as an accomplishment as that is, Kingston has his sights set even higher, disclosing during a recent interview with Renee Young that, he wants to hold ALL the titles.

“When I was a kid my goal was to hold every single championship title in WWE. I feel like I’m well on my way there but there’s obviously a couple that have eluded me. So that’s definitely a goal,” said Kingston.
