Former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston has opened up about no longer having a dream match – because one WrestleMania moment he had will never be topped!
No, it wasn’t the crowning moment of Kingston’s career when KofiMania reached fever pitch . . . it was twerking with Shawn Michaels!
Speaking with Inside The Ropes‘ Lead Writer Gary Cassidy for Inside The Ropes Magazine, WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston where we asked the former WWE Champion 20 questions and got some unique and bizarre answers to the questions that won’t be asked in any other wrestling interview!
If you want to know Kofi Kingston’s cheat meal, the movie the New Day star has seen the most and the one song Kofi would listen to for the rest of his life, check out Issue 10 of Inside The Ropes Magazine, where Kingston made the revelation when asked for his dream opponent.
“Dream OPPONENT! Man! Oh, so I always used to say, like, having a match with Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania would be THE BEST! It would be my dream.”
The former WWE Champion went on to recall how he did share the ring with Michaels and two other legends at WrestleMania 32.
But I think it was WrestleMania 32 where myself, Woods and E had a match against the League of Nations. But AFTER the match, we got in the ring with Stone Cold and Mankind, and Shawn Michaels – and granted it wasn’t like a match that we had, but I got to twerk with Shawn Michaels!”
So “twerking with Shawn Michaels” might be an accolade not many others can boast, and it’s one Kofi Kingston proudly remembers – so much so that he no longer desires a dream match with the Heartbreak Kid!
“I’ve been saying this since that happened… Like, I don’t feel like… Nothing is really going to top that! You know what I’m saying? For opponents or… You know, it was a twerk-off! It was a little twerk-off. So, yeah, that was the one. I don’t really have one anymore!”
