WWE was turned upside down in a huge way when Vince McMahon returned to the company. He was able to change the company’s bylaws to state that no media rights deals can be approved without the majority shareholder’s consent, and that just happened to be him. Now that the company is seemingly close to a sale, that brings up an even bigger question about how talent feels about things.

Kofi Kingston is no stranger to WWE, and the way that the company can change overnight. His veteran career saw him go through a few interesting moments in the company’s history. That being said, he doesn’t seem to be sweating this new development.

While speaking to CBS Sports’ Shakiel Mahjouri on SHAK Wrestling, Kofi Kingston was asked about WWE selling the company. He made it very clear that it doesn’t matter who’s in charge, because his job will be the same.

“I think we kind of all have the same mentality, like whatever happens outside of the company is going to happen. We really have no idea what’s transpiring, but our role remains the same, it’s just go out there and put on great matches.”


“That is the one thing, regardless of whoever’s in charge or whoever owns this or that, you know what I mean, that’s what we’re gonna do. That’s what we’re always gonna do. So that is the most important thing, I think, the mentality for us is just to kind of, like you said, laser vision and keep putting on great matches. So that’s what we’re gonna do.”

Jim Ross had a very interesting statement when he suggested that WWE talent stop being babies, and they just show up to work. That is certainly one way to look at things, and some talent might not leave even if Saudi Arabia buys the company. Of course, no matter how green the money, some talent would still leave.

We will have to see what’s next for WWE. The company could have a new owner by the middle of 2023, or sooner, if Vince McMahon and Nick Khan have anything to say about it.
