A recent article from AZCentral claimed that The Rock was a big influence on the career of WWE superstar Kofi Kingston. However, rajah.com reported on Jan. 24 that Kingston came out and disputed the comments, saying the site took his words out of context to create a bigger story than it was.
In the article, Kingston said he met The Rock in 2012 and said that he spoke to him about certain aspects of the business. He said that The Rock had some advice for him, which he took because he wants to emulate the success that The Rock had.
"If you don't want the success The Rock has had, then you probably shouldn't be in the WWE," Kingston said.
Kingston apparently didn't like the way the article was worded. He said that he just told them The Rock gave him a piece of advice but the article made it sound like The Rock mentored him, which he said was not true. He said it would have been an honor but it "regrettably" was not the facts.
Kofi Kingston has wrestled in the WWE since joining the developmental territory in 2006 and has held the Intercontinental Championship four times, U.S. Championship twice and Tag Team Championship three times.
