Kofi Kingston not done with Brock Lesnar: SmackDown Exclusive, Oct. 4, 2019


Kofi Kingston, you ushered in this new
era of SmackDown as the WWE champion. But unfortunately that match tonight
against Brock Lesnar, a quick one.>>Yeah.>>He left SmackDown,
the debut of SmackDown on Fox tonight as the new WWE Champion. How are you feeling at this moment?>>It’s a lot of emotions to be honest. You know that your championship
reign is not gonna last forever. But to have it go out like that,
obviously, I knew what kind of man I was up against. And maybe I was a little bit too anxious. I’ll go back and watch the tape and
see exactly what went wrong. [LAUGH] There’s not much tape to watch,
but it is what it is. I said all along that Brock Lesnar was
an enormous mountain to try and climb. But I pride myself on being up to
the challenge to climb those mountains. And no shame, I feel like I beat
a lot of good competitors and dare I say,
great competitors from Daniel Bryan to Kevin Owens to Samoa Joe,
even Sami Zayn was in there. I wrestled AJ Styles, and
I came out on top over all of them. So I just bring my all every single night. And tonight that fell a little bit short,
so.>>Well, I think I speak for the entire WWE Universe in saying
you were an excellent WWE Champion.>>Well, I appreciate you,
thank you for saying that. Thank you for saying that. Definitely it means a lot and there’s a lot of people out
there that believed in me. And unfortunately tonight I let them down. But I’m still very appreciative of the
support that I’ve had since before Mania, since Elimination Chamber. The support from the WWE Universe
has been incredible. And I’m just so appreciative for all the love that I felt
over these past few months. It’s been a crazy ride, my brothers in
The New Day support me the whole way. So it is what it is,
you know what I’m saying? It doesn’t feel very good but these
trying situations are what make us grow.>>Of course, following your match,
Cain Velasquez coming out and laying out Brock Lesnar. What exactly do you make of that?>>Honestly, it doesn’t surprise me
because the WWE title is the most coveted title in all the sports really, who
doesn’t wanna be adored by all the fans? Who doesn’t wanna come out and be able to perform in front of a fan
base as energetic as the WWE Universe? So I’ve heard rumors and I’ve seen
some things and I know Cain Velasquez is a fan of what we do, and
I also know he doesn’t like Brock Lesnar. So honestly, I’m not really surprised,
you know what I’m saying? It’ll be interesting to
see kinda what happens. I think I’m still trying to
process what I’ve lost right now before I start speculating
on other people coming in. And figuring out how I can get
back in that title scene cuz it took me a very long time to get here. And just trying to stay there,
you know what I’m saying? And trying to get back in, and
continue to be in that mix. So if that road includes a Cain Velasquez
in the middle of it, then so be it. We will cross that bridge when it comes. Definitely interesting, for sure,
to see somebody come again, from a different world to our world. So it’s just a testament
to how big WWE has gotten.>>You do good.>>Yeah, yeah.>>Thank you, man.>>Hey, come on, man. [LAUGH]
>>It seems like a big uphill battle.>>That’s the kind of
love that I experienced. We got Mark Henry literally
sweating all over me.>>For no reason.>>But it’s all good to come over and
show some love man. I appreciate that man too, but yeah.
