“Working with Netflix is huge”

Kofi Kingston talks about being part of The Main Event on Netflix:

“Working with Netflix is huge. It’s another global phenomenon. Everybody knows what Netflix is, everybody has Netflix, it’s so well known, so to be in a Netflix movie is amazing. I actually didn’t miss any time when I shot with them. I shot on my off-days, then would go back to wrestling on the weekends, so it wasn’t like I was missing anything. With WWE, you have to be able to wear a lot of different hats. We do a lot of different things. We’re not just wrestlers. We’re actors, we’re athletes, we wrestle, we are community servants, we’re public speakers. We do so many different things, and when you have the opportunity to do something special, you embrace it and you try to knock it out of the park. I was told that Netflix wanted to work with me specifically in this movie, and I was all about it. It’s something I wanted to dabble in for quite some time, especially when you start thinking about post-WWE and life outside of the ring and where you can take your career after wrestling.”
