Kofi Kingston Considered Leaving WWE Before Joining The New Day in 2014

Kofi Kingston Considered Leaving WWE Before Joining The New Day in 2014

WWE Champion Kofi Kingston recently spoke with OttawaSun.com. During the interview, Kofi revealed that he considered leaving wrestling at one point before joining forces with Xavier Woods and Big E in 2014:

“It’s always fun and laughs. Woods and E, without them I wouldn’t be here. When they approached me about being in the New Day, I didn’t even know if I wanted to keep wrestling because I was doing the same thing over and over.”

“It became monotonous. Woods and E approached me about getting in this group — guys who weren’t happy with their positions in the company. People told us we sucked, they rejected us. But it wasn’t long before they embraced us. Now, here we are, in a lot of people’s minds one of the greatest factions of all-time. Here we are, the WWE champion and the tag team champions — mission accomplished.”
