Kofi Kingston
Kofi Kingston has given an interview to the Miami Herald
In it he talks about his love for wrestling and martial arts and his favorite character he likes to play on a video game.
Here are some highlights

'I think one of the things about me that kept me fresh is that I do a lot of things that are not necessary orthodox,'' Kingston said. ``So I watch a lot of wrestling, Japanese wrestling, old English wrestling, Mexico and pretty much everything I can. I take little bits here and there and try to make it my own.

I'm definitely on the lookout to come up with the next move to have someone say, `Wow. I've never seen that before.'''

''I was always a big fan of the martial artist and the high flyers. I think the best combination of those two fields was Ricky the Dragon Steamboat,''

''My favorite character to play as [in the WWE Legends of WrestleMania video game] is the Ultimate Warrior,'' Kingston said. ``He comes out with a lot of energy. I'm not afraid to admit that I used to like the Ultimate Warrior growing up.

"Some people may frown on that, but I can't deny that fact. So to be out there and kind of live the dream through the Ultimate Warrior and the game is a lot of fun.''

Trish Stratus gave an interview to SLAM in which she denies the rumors that she did not appear at Wrestlemania due to her not being able to win it

"Simply, there were no finishes, no 'What's going to happen? Will I win?' discussed," Stratus said.

"It was just, 'Would you like to be in this 25-woman battle royal at Wrestlemania,' and I said, 'Thank you, but I’m going to decline.'"

“Maybe if it was a little clearer that could be accomplished for someone, I would have been a part of it.”

On working with Natalya, she stated:

"Oh my god, I would love to work with her," Stratus revealed. "I think she has so much potential; they’ve just got to do the right thing with her, especially with the built-in history. I get excited when I think about what they can do with her."

I can’t say that I blame her that Battle Royal was a disgrace, now her against Natalya would be worth watching


In an interview taped exclusively for the WWE website, Triple H gave his thoughts on the draft and then proceeded to cut a promo on Randy Orton for their match next week.
