In an interview with The Baltimore Sun, WWE star Kofi Kingston talks about how he got his degree in communications before making the jump to wrestling.

“Initially my family just didn’t know how big the WWE was. I started training on the independent scene, and these are definitely not the most glamorous arenas. When I told my parents I wanted to be a WWE Superstar coming out of college, and actually having worked a legit job where I’m supposed to be climbing that corporate ladder and working towards retirement, to all of a sudden tell them that I wanted to kind of throw that all away and pursue a different career, they were definitely hesitant to support me on it, for sure. But I felt in my heart that WWE was where I wanted to be.”
