Kofi Kingston Takes Issue With Newspaper Story

January 24, 2013 | Posted by Larry Csonka

AZCentral.com ran an article on Kofi Kingston, with the headline Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson mentors Kofi Kingston. Kofi posted the following on Twitter about the article…

“Ah, nothing like exaggeration in the media! Tell ’em that you received a piece of career advice, they print you’re being mentored! As honored as I would be were that the case, I must say, regrettably, it’s untrue!”

In the article, here is what Kingston stated about meeting the Rock and getting advice from him…

”I met him when he first came back last year. He’s real cool. He had some advice for me, I had a chance to pick his brain a bit. I spoke to him about certain things about the business, just general questions about how he got to where he was. Obviously you see a guy like The Rock, you see his success, you want to know exactly – from his mind and his mouth – how he got there, because I want to emulate that. If you don’t want the success The Rock has had, then you probably shouldn’t be in the WWE.”
