WWE's Kofi Kingston was CM Punk's road wife

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.

    Kofi is another in the long list of guys with unlimited potential, who’s been destroyed by bad booking and the workplace politics played by HHH.

    Not to mention, it’s no secret that black men are seldomely given the opportunity to excel in the giant cluster f()ck that is the wwe.

    It’s really to bad that most fans refuse to see just how arrogant and out of touch wwe management has become since the company went public. Because until fans are ready to say “ENOUGH!” and collectively hold the company hostage through a unified agreement to stop watching and send the ratings down to tna level numbers for a couple weeks, or agree to boycott an episode or two of Raw where those individuals with tickets collectively agree not to show up thus leaving the wwe to face the humiliation of going on live tv with an arena that’s at least half empty. Until we’re willing to do those things and demand change, nothing’s ever gonna get any better and I would venture to guess that it will infact continue to get worse.

    All year fans practically begged for Daniel Bryan to be champ and defend his title against CM Punk in the true main event of WM 30. Instead DB’s been buried half a dozen times and Punk is so fed up with part timers coming in and being handed the biggest match of the year, that he said f()ck it and just quit. And why does wwe pull this crap? Because they know they can do whatever the h3ll they want and like good little sheep the fans will continue to buy the product.
    We’re really quite pathetic if you really stop and think about it
