Kingston Recalls Being Bullied At School, Cornette Thanks Punk



– Monday’s issue of The Sporting News has a story on fathers and sons who were pro athletes, and James and Joe Laurinaitis (a/k/a Road Warrior Animal) are mentioned. The WWE Hall of Famer is dressed up like his son in a St. Louis Rams uniform and James is dressed up in a Road Warriors ensemble.

The Sydney Morning Herald has an article on Kofi Kingston, who recalls being a victim of bullying when he was a child.

“When I went to school I was definitely bullied,” Kingston told the children who are part of Underdogs, a Sydney, Australia based anti-bullying support group. “I wasn’t the biggest guy, I grew up in a town [in America] that was affluent – a lot of people had a lot – and while my family wasn’t what you’d call not well off, we didn’t have what others had.

“So, it was tough. For me, growing up was just a matter of dealing with it. You’d try to fight it but there were some days I didn’t want to go to school and come across certain people because I didn’t want the conflict.”

The article on Kingston’s anti-bullying efforts is available here.

– Jim Cornette wrote the following regarding CM Punk mentioning Ring of Honor last Monday on Raw: “@CMPunk Recognizes the best wrestling in the world when he sees it.Thanks Punk. #bitw #ROHbest #findroh.”
