Kofi Kingston was recently in the U.K. to promote the upcoming Wrestlemania Revenge tour. Here are some highlights from the interview.

Who he’s favoring between The Rock and John Cena at WrestleMania: “For me, I always grew up as a Rock fan, I had his poster on my wall in college. He’s just so captivating in the ring, and for me as a fan it’s great to see him back. It’s crazy to see him as WWE champion – I feel like I’m a kid again, watching, and I’m doing it from the absolute best seat in the house.

“But… John Cena is our workhorse. How can I root against John Cena? It’s so hard because I was such a Rock fan growing up and I’m still a Rock fan but in terms of paving the way for me while I’m here John Cena has been everything. He’s on every single live event and does all this media, he does a whole bunch of appearances with kids… Not that Rock doesn’t do all of that, but again for me right now on the roster, it’s very hard to root against the guy that I see do so much.”

British prospect PAC (Adrian Neville in NXT): “I’ve always heard so much about him. I knew of him before he got signed with WWE. But to see him in person, he’s very, very impressive. He does some incredible things – and that’s coming from me! He does a lot of superhero-esque things – he’s almost like a cartoon character with his flips. He makes it look so, so easy. Once he makes his debut on WWE television, I think a lot of people will really be in for a treat.”

William “Paul Bearer” Moody’s passing: “It’s hit home for a lot of people because he was just a very, very good person. A lot of us got the chance to know him when he was on the main roster recently with Edge and Kane and that whole story that they had going on. What a presence. Even with him and the Undertaker back in the day for the old school fans, you can’t imagine the Undertaker without Paul Bearer. He made the Undertaker and really added to that whole persona and tied it all together.

“He was a very special individual… In terms of his persona backstage, he was somebody that everyone always listened to, he was always trying to make people laugh and smile. A very genuine and good person. He will definitely be missed by all of the WWE superstars.”
