Kofi Kingston is a former WWE Champion and was one of WWE’s top babyfaces. He is still quite popular, but he is no longer on top of the company. Kofi Kingston won the WWE Championship after he beat Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35.
The build-up to the match was actually quite interesting. Kofi had to face a number of top WWE wrestlers to get the title shot and he also participated in a few gauntlet matches. This entire journey was known as ‘Kofi-Mania’.
On The New Day’s podcast, Kofi revealed that Kofi-mania was one of the only times Kofi was actually happy with the WWE’s creative team’s writing. He is one of the many WWE wrestlers that do not like the creative decisions that the WWE creative team makes.
"I feel like there are a lot of times when we do stuff from a storyline perspective where we want to, like, do a certain thing and then it's not done the way we want it to be done. With this whole angle, this whole story, I felt like I came to work every single week and I thought, 'this is great.
We're doing this the right way. This is perfect.' " The WWE creative team is also well-known for providing scripted promos to all wrestlers which hardcore wrestling fans genuinely hate. Wrestlers are not given the creative freedom that they used to have in the past.
