The Ghanaian wrestler, Kofi Kingston has become the first African World Champion in the WWE after winning the WWE Championship at the World’s Biggest Pro Wrestling event, WrestleMania.
Kingston after 11 years in WWE won the title from Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, and you can imagine the emotions coursing through him.
“It’s so emotional. Like, you work so hard to get here and sometimes you work as hard as you can and things aren’t going your way, you know? And you don’t know if the hard work is going to pay off. It’s paying off right now. It just feels surreal. It feels like a legitimate dream. … I feel like I’m in a dream, and I don’t want to wake up.”
He goes on to say that maybe the best part is how much support everyone gave him, not just the fans but his contemporaries. He is a true babyface you can’t help but love and appreciate.
