– WWE.com camera crews caught up with new Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston after last night’s episode of Main Event. Kofi said The Miz talking trash about him brought out a different side that he needed to capture the gold. Kofi talked about Legends who carried the white Intercontinental Title belt and said he’s ready to fill those shoes.
