Kofi Kingston has admitted he owns every toy ever made of him since he joined the WWE as a star on ‘RAW’ and ‘SmackDown’
WWE Superstar Kofi Kingston collects toys of himself.
The Ghanaian/American professional wrestler owns every single figure ever made in his likeness, as well as some toys of his wrestling buddies, and he keeps them all in his bedroom.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: “The figures are so cool. I’ve embarrassed myself on a few occasions when I’ve been buying my own action figure, but, I mean, how many people can say they can go to a store and buy themselves. It’s really flattering.”
Being a part of the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) roster means Kofi is used to seeing his image emblazoned on posters and used for toys.
Kofi – who is getting ready for ‘WWE WrestleMania XXIX’ on April 7, which can be watched live and exclusive on Sky Sports Box Office – is also a big video game fan and he always plays as himself when he tests the new WWE games.
The 31-year-old star – who is coming to the UK for the ‘WWE RAW’ & ‘SmackDown World Tours’ from April 18 to April 23 with the rest of the roster – added: “I can’t play anyone but myself. I always used to spend so much time creating my character, literally like two or three hours, falling asleep and then waking up and finishing it – and it would look nothing like me! Now I don’t even have to worry about that; I just pop on the game, and there I am like, goatee, hair and my face is the way it looks, it’s really cool for me.”
