During a recent interview with WrestlingNewsCo, WWE Champion Kofi Kingston spoke about Big E potentially becoming a World Champion and more. Below are some highlights with a H/T to WrestlingInc.com for the transcriptions.
On which WWE NXT Superstars he would like to face:
“I get this question all the time and it’s impossible to pick just one,” Kofi explained. “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. On USA, coming up. It’s going to make them that much better because they’ve had a lot of time to grind, and they are very comfortable being in front of TV. They’ve bult their own brand, so I think it’s going to be great for them. The more exposure, the better. I think the more people that can know about the talent that’s down there.”
On Big E potentially being a World Champion:
“Yeah, [Big E could be WWE Champion] eventually. He’s got a [tag team title]belt right now, you know what I’m saying?” Kofi said. “He and Woods both [are doing great]– 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 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 that I call my family.”
