• Kofi Kingston Reacts To Making An Impact In Vince McMahon’s Mind
During a recent interview with Talk Sport, SmackDown Superstar Kofi Kingston was asked if Vince McMahon’s TV character is played out.
Below is what Kofi said:
“Well, it’s tough to say what the story needs and what it doesn’t need, I think we’re all on this wild ride together. And the fact that Vince McMahon feels the need to interject definitely speaks volumes to the impact this situation has had on the WWE Universe. Because Vince doesn’t trouble himself with matters that aren’t really worth his time.
So, apparently, we’ve gotten our name [New Day] on his radar which is a great thing if you ask me. To be able to go toe-to-toe with Vince McMahon on the mic is something that I never thought that I would do as a kid.
You set goals for yourself as a kid and you want to be a WWE superstar, but this is one that you don’t really see coming. And it kind of came out of nowhere, this whole angle. If Mustafa Ali doesn’t get hurt, I don’t know if I’m even on the card for WrestleMania.”
