Kofi appreciated that some of his fellow Superstars began by playing Rugby and this led to Mtawarira expressing his interest in WWE. The WWE Superstar questioned Beast in relation to his view of stepping into the ring one day as his name and body type would suit the WWE Universe. The rugby player replied saying that he has been a fan ever since he was young and he qould appreciate the opportunity to have such an experience given the fact that he looks up to WWE legends like Hulk Hogan and The Rock.



“To actually get the opportunity to come to the WWE, even on a once-off appearance, I would be so excited. Let’s see what happens man, maybe you can open some doors!” Beast responded.

Springboks captain, Siya Kolisi asked his former team mate about his chances of WWE success by commenting “Kofi will fly kick your a**.”

Beast received advise from Kofi on how he could potentially prepare for a WWE appearance and make it a priority to do what he can to make it possible.


Beast is a Castle Lager Rugby Championship  winner (2019) and Currie Cup winner (2008, 2010 and 2013) with the Sharks besides being a Rugby World Champion. He is also the third most capped He Springbok of all time as he has 117 caps, behind Victor Matfield and Bryan Habana.

The 2019 Rugby World Cup Winner stated, “It was always my dream to win a World Cup, to be a world champion because throughout my journey I’ve worked hard for 12 years to achieve the goal and it happened.”

After winning the title at Wrestlemania 35 in 2019 Kofi became the first African-born WWE Champion. “Being able to take the WWE Championship back to Ghana for me was probably one of the best experiences of my life, you know. Seeing Ghanaian children, letting them hold the WWE Championship belt, having them see the name Kofi on it, such a popular name in Ghana. They could see doors being unlocked (for them) and it’s like woah, I can do anything!” said the Superstar.

Over the course of his career, Kofi has won 21 WWE Championships and  these include the  WWE Championship, WWE Intercontinental, WWE United States Championship, Raw Tag Team and SmackDown Championships.
