Kofi Kingston Addresses Heel Turn Rumors & Talks About Starting In WWE As A Jamaican

WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston was interviewed by Brian Soscia of Philadelphia’s Mix 106.1 radio station this week and addressed the rumors that he will be turning heel soon:

“Here’s the thing. I get asked that question all the time,” he said. “It’s really funny because there’s a rumor on the Internet right now. ‘Oh, Kofi’s turning heel.’ And, I’m like, ‘I am?’ I’m always the last one to find these things out. But, I’m very confident as a performer and if that’s the case, I’m sure I’ll knock it out of the park. I don’t even know what’s going to happen tonight, so for me to even think about what’s going to happen way down the line, who knows,” Kingston added. “I guess we’ll wait and see what happens. I have no idea.”

As for WrestleMania 29, Kofi says it’s “crunch time for WWE:

“This is crunch time right now. As of now, I’m doing anything at WrestleMania, so it’s a matter of working your way onto the card. Every match now, every moment that you have on TV is working towards that.”

Kingston also addressed the Jamaican gimmick he had when he entered WWE:

“It’s a miracle that I’m still here based on those vignettes because it makes me cringe every time I go back and look at them.”
