Kofi Kingston Profile
Kofi Nahaje Sarkodie-Mensah, better known under the ring name Kofi Kingston, is a Ghanaian-American professional wrestler performing on the Raw brand, signed to WWE. Standing at 6’0”, Kingston has inherited ample amounts of success in the wrestling world and remains one of the most successful entertainers in WWE history.
Kingston, following his graduation from Boston College, decided to pursue a career in professional wrestling - a career that began on the independent circuit. By 2006, Kingston had signed a development deal with WWE and made his debut in 2008. The next few years were extremely successful for Kingston as he became a four-time Intercontinental Champion and three-time United States Champion.
Following the independent success, Kingston formed an exciting group called ‘The New Day’ alongside Big E and Xavier Woods in 2014. The trio endured ample amounts of success, going on to break the record for the longest Tag Team Championship reign in WWE history. Throughout the years, Kingston is a 13-time Tag Team Champion in WWE, a feat only a select few will ever get close to.
Kingston then decided to perform independently once more and defeated Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania in 2019 to win the WWE Championship. He remains the first African-born world champion in the history of WWE and his extremely likeable character has led to a very popular following.
