Earlier this week, Kofi Kingston passed Billy Gunn’s record as the WWE Superstar with the longest cumulative time as a tag team champion.
Now though, he’s done something arguably even more impressive.
Fatherly, a digital lifestyle brand that provides news, expert advice, product recommendations and other resources for parents, has ranked Kofi as the 17th coolest dad in America.
Kofi was ranked cooler than dozens of people this reporter has never heard of, but was pipped to the top spot by LeBron James.
Fatherly gave the following as the reason for Kofi’s ranking:
“Even for a WWE star, Kofi Sarkodie-Mensah has noticeable swagger. When he enters the ring, he beams with exuberance, leaping, flexing, flipping, and flashing his signature smile. Better known in the ring as Kofi Kingston, the Ghana-born wrestler has put his energy and raw athleticism into winning a total of 14 championships since making his television debut on ECW in 2007.
“The best part? Kofi is a fan favorite with adults who still keeps it PG for the kids. Part of this is no doubt because he’s a dad who wants to set an example for his two young sons, Khi and Orion, born in 2013 and 2016, who he’s raising with his wife Chi Chi in Tampa, Florida. Kingston has always played the good guy on the stage. We’re not sure he knows any other way.”
Step aside tag team record. Kofi is officially cool.
