Professional wrestlers obviously travel with each other, just like any other professional athlete would. Some ride a team jet or bus to the city where they need to either play or perform, or they ride together and make a whole bunch of hilarious memories.
Every athlete has at least one or two funny stories involving either a teammate or a co-worker. It doesn’t matter who you are, something crazy or funny is going to happen to you when you’re traveling across the country or globe and most of those stories end up surfacing at some point.
Now former Intercontinental/United States and Tag Team Champion Kofi Kingston recently sat down for an interview and discussed a special bond with a specific (former) WWE Superstar, CM Punk. They were so close on the road, that they’ve started calling each other ‘road wife’.
“Yeah, we were each other’s road wives. With Punk, I consider him to be like a brother to me. He’s one of the guys who took me under his wing when I first came. So we’ve been able to maintain a good relationship. And there are very few people in the business that you can call true friends, so I consider Punk to be that and more. So yes, ‘road wife’ is the term we used to sum that all up.” Kofi via NoDQ.com.
A little awkward but understandable.
