Kofi Kingston recently took part in a WWE Media call (transcript via Wresting Inc), and spoke about his accomplishments as a tag team wrestler and his favorite tag team opponents…

On Being a Tag Team Champion For over 1,000 Combined Days: “Yeah, it’s just an amazing achievement for sure. It’s one of those that, as far as I can remember, I never expected to be the longest reigning tag team champion in the history of the company, or be on the team that was the longest reigning tag team champions,” admitted Kingston. “But it definitely is a feather in the cap, while especially considering where we came from. And the fact that the WWE Universe rejected us at first, and we had to turn that around, and have them embrace us through our positivity. To be able to attain the goals that we did, it truly is an amazing achievement. I truly appreciate it.”

On His Favorite Opponents: “Well, 100 percent The Usos,” said Kingston. “Just like I said before, because there’s so much chemistry on so many levels. Being able to do so many cool things, so many unpredictable things on the main roster, that all got knocked out of the park. And I don’t want to toot my own horn, or be too arrogant, but there’s something between us and The Usos that we were able to knock it out of the park. It has got to be The Usos, and there’s no second. Actually, we did some things with Mizdow—Damien Sandow and The Miz, that were really, really fun. But most of that was on live events, and a bit of it was televised but it has got to be number two. But they’re in the second place, they are way in the second. There’s a really big gap between the matches we had with The Usos and the matches we had with Mizdow.”
