Kofi Kingston: My Kids Can't Stop Talking About WWE 24/7 Champion Reggie
Reginald became Reggie in July
Kofi Kingston has hailed the uniqueness and ability of WWE's 24/7 Champion Reggie, saying his kids can't stop talking about his athletic talents.
Reggie has been 24/7 Champion for a number of weeks and has the opportunity to show-off his flexibility and acrobatic style in segments every week on Monday Night Raw, as he evades capture by other talent on the roster.
Kingston took his family to one of the shows in San Antonio, Texas, and says his children are still talking about how cool Reggie is.
Speaking on The New Day 'Feel The Power' Podcast, Kingston said: "We had a show in San Antonio and my kids were at the show and the one person they couldn’t stop talking about was Reginald. He had a segment on TV where Tozawa and R-Truth are chasing him around and they’re camouflaged in trash cans and everything and Reggie’s jumping through like the trees and doing a flip off the trees, he does a flip over the car lands on his feet and gets into the car.
"My kids cannot stop talking about it, especially Orion. He’s like, ‘Yeah, the one guy, he did the flip into the tree and then he flipped over the car, he drove away and he said too easy,’ he’s still talking about it. That was like a week and a half ago.
"Obviously, we know him and we know how talented he is, and the cool, crazy things he can do. But the fact that he used to be at the Cirque du Soleil shows, you know, top performance, just crushing it, again, just an incredible level of talent that it takes to be a performer in general, but particularly like a Cirque du Soleil performer because the preciseness like seeing Reggie in the ring, and seeing what he does in the ring, blows my mind away because he’d never, he doesn’t miss a step and obviously, he’s new, you know what I’m saying?
"But like, the stuff that he does right now is so unique. To me, it just takes such — he’s never had a performance in front of a live crowd up until July when we started having shows. That was his first live performance. So the fact that he’s like killing it is mind-blowing to me. But then again, he’s been doing it for a lifetime with this Cirque du Soleil."
