During his appearance on The Swerve City Podcast, Kofi Kingston discussed how he takes a more hands-off approach to mentoring other wrestlers, allowing wrestlers to come to him rather than seeking them out. Here’s what he had to say:
So 205 Live is the best kept secret, you know what I’m saying? Y’all are so talented. And every match is so crisp and people are doing things like, man, I’m glad I didn’t come in right now because I can’t do any of that. You know wha t I’m saying? But it’s crazy man. It’s exciting though. It really is exciting. I try to — so I remember back in my day, y’know what I mean? A lot of times like the higher-ups would get mad if you didn’t come to them and ask for advice about your match. It’d be like you’re mad about it, you know. And for me, it’s like, I don’t mind if you want my advice or not. Like it’s cool because everyone’s entitled to having their own journey and making their own mistakes. That’s how you learn. That’s how you get better. If you go out and you do what I want you to do, you’re not getting better. You’re a puppeteer. You know what I’m saying? A puppet. I’m just the one pulling the strings. You know what I mean? So, I’m always there for people to come to me and ask for my advice and my experience, and I’m happy to give it. You know what I’m saying? But a lot of people these days have a lot more experience, whether it’s being on the independents or wherever or other places not to be named.
