WWE Splits Up Another Tag Team on RAW

Kofi Kingston On How Nervous He Was For Big E’s Title Win

During his interview with SI, Kofi Kingston revealed that he was more nervous for Big E. winning the title than he was for his own title win at Wrestlemania 35. Here’s what he had to say:

I havent run that fast in a decade. It was uncontrollable excitement. It was such an emotional day. Ive been around the business long enough to know you dont celebrate anything until it actually happens. Throughout the day, I had this energy in body, but I was scared to let it out. Something could have changed, and I didnt want to jinx anything. When it actually happened, all that energy came pouring out.

I was way more nervous watching Es match than I was during my own at WrestleMania a few years ago. Its one thing to see somebody work for something and grow and then finally attain the highest point of their profession, but its a whole other thing when you know that person deeply and personally. Myself, Woods and E, we are all brothers. Ive watched E grow so, so much. He took this opportunity to be a wrestler and ran with it. He has never rested on his laurels. Hes always getting better, whether its on the mike, his physical shape or in the ring. He never holds back or takes a night off. He always prides himself in getting better. So its amazing to think where he started and see where he is now. Its an inspiration. He wanted this, and he put in the work every step of the journeyand he did it. Everything happened the way it was supposed to. It was such a big moment for all of us.
