Kofi Kingston takes inspiration from cartoons

Kofi Kingston has revealed that he gains inspiration from a number of different places. 

As reported by wrestlinginc.com, the WWE superstar has suggested that he takes inspiration from cartoons and movies. 

Kingston, who is set to be involved in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania XXX, is known for his acrobats in the industry and has insisted that he's never had a contingency plan, should his stunts go wrong. 

Speaking to Donald Wood, Kingston said: "I get inspired from all different kinds of places, cartoons, comic books, movies and things like that and if I see it then I'll try to emulate it in the ring and often times you figure out why these moves are comic books and movie-style moves because they can't be done.

"Most of the time I've thought of something I found a way to make it work and luckily it's actually worked out like the Royal Rumble jump that I did this year there was no contingency plan if I didn't make that, and it goes the same for the handstand deal and the chair spot, like if I fall then I'm done so knock on wood luckily I've been able to actually complete what I've set out to do but, again, if I don't there's no contingency plan I guess if I fall then I walk to the back and I'll be eliminated."

Wrestling fans will be excited to see Kingston take part in the Battle Royal on April 6, as the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana prepares to play host to WrestleMania. 

A number of high profile matches have already been announced at the 'Grandest Stage of them All'. Along with the Battle Royal, The Undertaker will defend his WrestleMania streak against Brock Lesnar, whilst Triple H will take on fans' favourite Daniel Bryan for a place in the main event at the pay-per-view. 

Let's hope Kingston is feeling even more inspired than usual on April 6...
