  • Quotes

  • A Newbie in ECW but a great Athlete!

    Kofi Sarkodie-Mensah (Better known in the ring as Kofi Kingston) is a wrestler from Kingston, Jamaica. So far in ECW, this guy has impressed me with his fast unique style of wrestling and his devastating 540 kick. Although Kingston has not been in the business that long, although he has been working alot of dark matches in the business, he has already impressed me, which is hard to do for me this early. I think he will continue to get better and will surely be a top contender for the ECW championship in a couple of months time, and could be the future of this business.moreless
