Kofi Kingston

The high-flying United States Champion has thrilled members of the WWE Universe with his breathtaking aerial assault and “Wildcat” offense. Over the course of his still-young career, Kofi has racked up championship gold in the form of the Intercontinental Title and a memorable run as WWE Tag Team Champion.

A decorated champion, and an overall class act, Kofi says he owes it all to his mom.   

KOFI KINGSTON: My mom means everything to me. She has been such an inspiration in terms of just leading by example. Growing up, I never got into any trouble because I never wanted to upset her — because she did everything in her power for me to have a great childhood.

Even coming from Ghana to the United States, my mom and dad did so much to provide a better life for their kids. It was such a huge sacrifice; leaving your entire family — and we have a huge family — leaving them to come to America and have a better life for their kids. My mom worked her way all the way up; she has a doctorate in anthropology. Imagine doing that while having three kids. It’s just amazing. She provided the best possible example in terms of chasing your dreams. And here I am, doing the same thing.

My mom set a great example, and I love her.
