Kofi Kingston On How Life Has Changed Since Becoming WWE Champion, Inspiring Kids In Ghana

WWE Champion Kofi Kingston has said life has gotten "infinitely busier" but "in the best way possible" since capturing the title at WrestleMania 35 in April.

Kingston, 37, captured the title from Daniel Bryan in the culmination of eleven years on the main roster, and recently defended the gold from Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler.

When asked about life as champion by the State of Combat podcast, the New Day star said how he feels a new sense of responsibility as champion, and that life has gotten much busier but in the best way possible.

He said: "I want to be living proof that anything is possible and be a source of motivation for anybody out there in this world for anybody having a dream."

Kingston also spoke about his recent return to his homeland of Ghana, and described meeting young Ghanian fans of his as inspiring.

"I tried to imagine how I would have felt as a kid if Shawn Michaels or any WWE superstar would have come to my school and came to my assembly and had given a speech that we would have had to listen to I would have lost my mind," he said.

"Now you think about kids in Ghana who are seeing someone who looks exactly like them; who was in their exact shoes coming up and shaking their hand as WWE champion. It's mind-blowing."

Kofi is scheduled to face Dolph Ziggler in a Steel Cage match for the title on June 23, at WWE Stomping Grounds.
