Kofi Kingston is certainly a proper veteran in the pro wrestling world, having worked in WWE for over decade. He has competed in several memorable matches and won various championships. Kofi might be inspired by AEW and NJPW’s Forbidden Door event, because he also wants to face wrestlers outside WWE.

Apart from his singles run, which saw him win the WWE Championship, among other titles, Kofi Kingston is still a member of The New Day. The group remains one of the most popular tag teams in the history of pro wrestling.

While speaking with Sebastian Hackl for WWE Deutschland‘s Instagram, Kofi Kingston talked about the Forbidden Door. Kingston said that he wants to mix it up with wrestlers outside WWE.

“Yeah, I mean there’s a lot, I think more so now. Well, you know, since Mickie James came to the Rumble right, the quote-on-quote ‘Forbidden Door), that was never to be talked about, was opened. So, there’s a lot of different people from a lot of different promotions that are incredibly talented that I would love to mix it up with and have matches with for sure.”


We will have to wait and see whether Kofi Kingston will get the opportunity to square off against wrestlers outside WWE in the future. In the meantime, he will keep doing his thing with Xavier Woods on WWE television while we all wait for Big E’s hopeful return.
