Kofi Kingston Comments On The Future Of WWE, New Day & Usos Feud, Big E./The Shield

Big E. was going to be in The Shield at one point.

During his recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Kofi Kingston spoke about this, as well as The New Day vs. Usos rivalry and the future of WWE.

Featured below are some more highlights from the interview where he touches on these topics with his thoughts.

On the rivalry between The New Day and The Usos: “Think about the old school, when you had guys like Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels feud for the intercontinental championship, and they’d have these classic matches. Then they did their own thing, grew and eventually met again for the WWE championship. That’s what is happening here us and The Usos, and Roman and Big E.”

On Big E originally scheduled to be in The Shield: “Big E was supposed to be a part of The Shield. He didn’t end up being a part of it, they did their thing, and we had a bunch of clashes with The Shield. And we had so many battles with The Usos. We’ve all had incredible growth, and now we’ve found each other again. Roman climbed the ladder. Now Big E has, too. People who have been watching WWE for the past eight years are really going to enjoy this, and we’re going to make it special for everyone. This is the next chapter, and we’re going to knock this out of the park.”

On the future of WWE: “I am filled with joy and pride, especially knowing the caliber of champion he’ll be. He has everything it takes to be the face of this company, and now he has the chance to show it.”
