WWE Champion Kofi Kingston shares a special bond with his New Day brothers, Xavier Woods and Big E. All the three superstars are currently holding championship belts on SmackDown Live, and according to Kingston, Big E could potentially hold the top prize one day.
Kofi Kingston recently spoke to WrestlingNews.co on several wrestling topics where he talked about which superstars from NXT he would like to face. He listed Velveteen Dream, Adam Cole and Tommaso Ciampa as potential opponents.
“I get this question all the time and it’s impossible to pick just one. I mean, Velveteen Dream, Tomasso Ciampa, Adam Cole, there’s so much talent down there. I think it’s a really special time. Especially, they’re so good that they’re getting to be on national television now.”
Kingston was asked whether he feels Big E could win the WWE Championship, and he was completely in favor of such a move taking place. He said that both, Big E and Xavier Woods, could potentially be the top champs one day. He feels that all three of them have already carved out a Hall-of-Fame worthy career for themselves.
“Yeah, eventually. He’s got a belt right now, you know what I’m saying? He and Woods both. Honestly, all of us are already in the Hall of Fame if I’m – not to toot my own horn or whatever, but The New Day, we’ve done so many significant things. E and [Xavier] Woods are incredibly talented individuals that I am so blessed to have been grouped with these guys. To have met these guys in life, to have met such great guys who I call my family.”
Kofi Kingston is clearly a very grateful individual, and even though he is the WWE champion, he doesn’t forget the work Big E and Woods put in to make sure he becomes the champion.
