The following is an excerpt from an interview with Kofi Kingston from SkySports.com:
Kofi, welcome back to skysports.com. What should your UK fans expect from The Elimination Chamber?
Kofi Kingston: Elimination Chamber is one of the more unique WWE pay per views. It’s one of the most exciting but also the most brutal in WWE history. There is over 10 tonnes of steel but it’s not like a cage. Two Superstars start out with the other four locked in a pod. The pods will open at random until all six are in action. The last man standing wins. There are six guys desperate to become the WWE Champion. Actually that’s not true. Five of us are desperate to become Champion and Sheamus is desperate to hold on to his title.
What history do you have when it comes to this type of event?
Kofi: This time last year my title hopes were shattered by Edge. It was supposed to be my first title shot but he ran in and attacked me. Because of that, while most Superstars would be nervous ahead of this kind of match, I’ve been looking forward to it for about a year. I’m eager.
Let’s talk about your opponents. We’ll go through them one by one and I’ll ask you to sum them up. But we’re very busy here at skysports.com so you’re only allowed two sentences about each one. Do we have a deal?
Kofi: Sure. Let’s go.
We’ll start with the Champion, Sheamus.
Kofi: A young hungry Irishman who has taken the WWE universe by storm. Man, he became WWE Champion in record time.
Next up is an old friend of skysports.com and a big Tottenham fan John Cena
Kofi: He is the true hero – some may call him the Superman of WWE. He lost his title to Sheamus and is keen to get it back
I spent some time with Triple H in Houston at WrestleMania25. His arms were bigger than my legs. You must be scared of him. Even just a bit?
Kofi: Man he’s a freak of nature. People forget how long he’s been around – he worked his way to the top and has stayed at the top of the game…he is The Game
Your evening doesn’t get any easier. Next up is Randy Orton.
Kofi: Everybody knows he’s always up to no good and they call him the snake because he slithers around and knows how to win matches in a dastardly fashion. He’s one who’s looking to get the title and he has an almost psychotic obsession with it.
And finally Ted DiBiase. He’ll be paying us a visit next month. Will he have the WWE Championship belt with him?
Kofi: Let’s hope not – let’s hope I’ve got it.
