Kofi Kingston Comments On MVP Mentoring Him When He First Joined WWE


During this week’s edition of WWE’s “The Bump”, Kofi Kingston commented on MVP mentoring him when he first joined the main WWE roster, his thoughts on the team of R-K-Bro, and more. You can check out some highlights from the show below:

On the team of R-K-Bro: “It was crazy because I think all of us are watching R-K-Bro gel before our eyes. Unfortunately, that combination came at the end of the match – they came together. They’re a weird combination, but they’re so interesting to watch. I love seeing new teams kind of evolve and be born on the roster. I think a lot of people have been wanting to see a lot of new tag teams. The fact that Randy and Riddle came together, at first, everyone was like, what is this? What’s going on? But for whatever reason, it’s working. It’s impressive to see them come together.”

On MVP: “Well, first, I want to address the fact that I have to go to work now and look around the dark corners to make sure he isn’t lurking around and creeping around. This is creepy, bro. As far as what he’s saying, it’s kind of difficult because when I first came on the roster, MVP took me under his wing. I’ve always considered him to be like a big brother. I’ve always appreciated what he’s done in the ring and his mic work. Over the years, I don’t know, I’ve seen him go down this path where…our philosophies don’t match. You weren’t here when I was grinding. You weren’t here telling me what to do. I got to this point on my own. I’ve achieved a lot of success here. I don’t feel like I need help from anybody, really, to tell me what to do, let alone MVP. If we’re talking credentials, I don’t even like to toot my own horn, but how many titles have I won? How much success have I had consistently over the past decade-plus? I don’t need MVP to tell me what I need to do to become champion. He gets under my skin with these comments, so I just don’t need him.”

On his thoughts on Riddle’s abilities: “Oh, he’s great, man. For as chill as he is, like, outside the ring, he is so 180 of that. I think he’s got a lot of potential. It was definitely a battle, but you love to see it. I love a challenge. I’ve always wanted to go up against the best competition, and I think Riddle is definitely one of the best.”
