Kofi Kingston appeared on the latest episode of Table Talk where he discussed his Royal Rumble saves. Kingston has become known for his moves to save himself from elimination.
It turns out that he gives John Morrison credit for coming up with them. Here is what he had to say:
“You know, for me, so John Morrison who was the one. I always give him credit because he’s the one who got like knocked off the barricade and then Spider-Manned, like spider monkeyed on the barricade and came back on. But then the year after that, he wasn’t with the company anymore so I was like, ‘Oooh, I mean, somebody’s gonna do something like that, maybe I’ll do it. I mean, I’ll take it, I’ll do that spot.’ So I then did the headstand. And again, this is a situation where I get a lot of credit for these. But everybody else that’s involved has to do their part. Otherwise, I can’t. Like, if Miz throws my feet too far I fall over, I cant do the headstand. If Matt Bloom — ‘Trainer for NXT’ is his official name now — doesn’t catch me on his back and he throws me on into the table. If he doesn’t do his job, I don’t get the credit, you know what I’m saying? If I get thrown into The Rosebuds and they all drop me then they don’t do their job and I don’t get the credit.”
