Superstars, celebrities and more share their excitement for Kofi Kingston’s WWE Title victory
Like the words of a fellow beloved hero, Kofi Kingston’s Road to WrestleMania represented “dedication, hard work plus patience.” The sum of all his sacrifice became realized at WrestleMania 35, where the emblazoned hero turned his 11-year journey into a watershed moment by becoming WWE Champion. What a moment it was.
As sheer joy erupted throughout MetLife Stadium, the excitement surrounding Kingston’s history-making victory exploded online, as well, sparking a volume of reactions on social media from WWE Superstars and Legends to celebrities and personalities.
Ive never felt emotions like this in my entire career. @TrueKofi did it. We all did it. Tonight a previously closed off part of the @wwe universe realized that they can be champion too & that representation is so much more important than people realize. Congrats Kofi. We love you— ✈️ Pax Unplugged - Off Season (@XavierWoodsPhD) April 8, 2019

#KofiMania is important. Think about how many people just watched what he did. Think about how many felt connected to him because they too have been struggling for so long. Think about how many people he inspired. Think about how important #KofiMania is.— Mustafa Ali / Adeel Alam (@AliWWE) April 8, 2019

Many dreams and opportunities that seemed unreachable for so long now have become obtainable #KofiMania— Cedric Alexander (@CedricAlexander) April 8, 2019
I just ran into Kofi in the hallway of the hotel. He genuinely is on cloud 9 and should be. Imagine legitimately working for something for 11 years and tonight in front of his children and wife realized a lifelong dream. Just amazing. What a moment.— Jonathan Coachman (@TheCoachrules) April 8, 2019

A kid who looks like us saw Kofi Kingston win the WWE Championship at WrestleMania and it likely inspired him to chase the same dream... and know it’s possible. What a night.— Malcolm Bivens (@Malcolmvelli) April 8, 2019
One of the best human beings I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. Not to mention how great he is at our craft#KofiMania— TJ Wilson (@TJWilson) April 8, 2019
