WWE superstar Kofi Kingston will be having somewhat of a homecoming when he returns to New Orleans this April for WrestleMania XXX. Kingston spent his very early years in the city, attending Lusher elementary from preschool to second grade.
Kingston was doing some press in the area recently and spoke with NOLA.com, which we posted a brief excerpt from yesterday, about WrestleMania this year, being known for his tricks during the Royal Rumble match each year, and more. Most would think Kofi plans his acrobatic moves for the Royal Rumble match weeks or even months in advance, Kingston said that wasn't the case.
In addition to New Orleans being the host city for WrestleMania this year where he'll likely perform, Kingston will have a chance to give back to New Orleans in another way that week. On April 4, Kingston will be working with KaBOOM! — a national non-profit that works to ensure all children get a balance of active play — to build a playground.
Kofi talked much more about WrestleMania and his New Orleans childhood in this interview feature, including revealing Shawn Michaels as his WrestleMania dream match.
