Kingston Speaks on Getting Into WWE, More

Kofi Kingston explained how he went from working in a corporate office to wrestling for WWE during an interview with the UK Sun. “About three years ago I was working in a cubicle in corporate environment, knowing in my heart that it wasn’t really what I wanted to do. I was only doing it because everybody else was doing it. Then one day I decided to follow my dream instead.

“I started wrestling on the independent scene and they held a WWE tryout at my wrestling school with lots of the agents. I did very well and a few days later they called me and offered me a developmental deal in Deep South Wrestling in Atlanta – where I started just two weeks after getting the call.” To read the rest of the story, visit the thesun.co.uk.
