Kofi KingstonNew United States Champion Kofi Kingston was interviewed by The Evening Times, talking about his career and the path that led him there. Among the highlights are Kingston's comments on a possible heel turn, as well as The Rock and Brock Lesnar. Here are some highlights of the interview:

On if he wants to turn heel in the future:

"Everybody on Twitter seems to want me to turn bad… I would try my hand at anything and I think I could do it well."

His thoughts on The Rock and Brock Lesnar:
 
"The Rock and Brock Lesnar have really paved the way for guys like me. Maybe somewhere down the line we can be the ones coming back for the big appearances and there is certainly a desire for young talent to come through to high profile matches. I'm sure you'll see that in the coming years."
 
On who his dream opponent is:
 
"Shawn Michaels would be my dream opponent because in my mind he's the greatest of all time. I've never seen him have a bad match so to be there in the ring with Shawn would be amazing. He is one of the biggest reasons for me getting into the WWE."
