Kofi Kingston has two obvious goals to achieve before retiring.
Throughout his long career in WWE, Kofi Kingston has achieved multiple achievements; the most important to date is winning the WWE Championship for the first and only time so far at WrestleMania 35 against Daniel Bryan with one of the biggest standing ovations in memory. Kingston is part of The New Day, one of the essential factions in history and has won numerous tag and individual titles.
In an interview on The Bubba Show, Kofi Kingston was asked about the goal he has yet to achieve in his WWE career, and he couldn’t pick just one.
The only thing? There’s a lot. Winning the Rumble would be great. There is a list. You have to stay hungry.
Having a fight in Africa, in Ghana specifically. We just did a test in Nigeria, not the actual test, but they announced the test that will take place in January. And the winner will be able to compete with everyone in Los Angeles before WrestleMania. This is very important.
People talk about wrestling, and you know, “Oh, well, that’s a script. And that’s not real.” But the impact we have on the world is accurate and genuine. And it’s crazy to be a part of that. So I can’t, you know, it’s a great answer because you’re asking me to narrow it down to one thing in particular, but there are so many things that I would love to do in the industry.
At 41 years old, Kofi Kingston is the NXT Tag Team Champion along with Xavier Woods, and they are the third team to win the tag team titles of the three leading brands along with Street Profits and The Revival (now FTR). Although winning an edition of the Royal Rumble seems complicated, having a match in Africa is a pretty real possibility considering that WWE aims to expand internationally over the next few years and hold events in different parts of the world.
