Kofi Kingston Says Big E. Losing The WWE Championship ‘Stings’, More


WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston was a recent guest on the “Bleav in Pro Wrestling” podcast and commented on Big E. losing his WWE Championship, Big E.’s main event run, and more. You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On Big E losing his title: “I thought he did great. We’re always the biggest critics of ourselves and you go back to criticisms and everything online, people giving us feedback on matches. We’ve always taken pride in holding ourselves to the highest standard. Like, nobody is gonna hold us to a higher standard than we hold ourselves to. So, we expect nothing but the best of ourselves. Myself, [Xavier] Woods, and Big E, that’s just the way that we roll.”

On Big E’s main event run: “He was able to switch things up but also not change, stay true to himself, which a lot of people can’t say. I feel like when he was in the ring – and this has always been the case. But he’s always had the support of the people. You know what I’m saying? He’s always able to go out there and entertain and do things that as a man that large he should not physically be able to do. He goes out there and showcases his athleticism. Every single time he touches the mic, he’s able to move the people and make people feel.”

On how Big E losing the title stings: “If you’re the type of person to let something bad tear you down and hold you down for a long time, then you’re probably not gonna progress any further. This business is so – like, ‘next man up’, you know? So, you have to be constantly on your grind even after a huge loss. Yes, it stings. But again, those things that sting and those things that hurt make you better. You remember how that feels and then you go out there and you have a certain level of – just a different level of mentality going out there and it’s reflected in your work. It’s reflected in the physical things you do out there and the way that you speak and the way that you feel and your confidence level and your desire and passion. Like, that all comes out and that comes out because of the experience you had. So, I take everything as a growing experience, as an opportunity to get better. And that’s what these situations do. They make us stronger.”
