Papa Kingston. Over the years, Kofi Kingston has become one of the most decorated wrestlers of all time. With fifteen total titles to his name, there are few current wrestlers around who can match him in that area. Kingston has been around for a long time now and while there are other titles he can win, he has recently been given another award that probably means more than anything he could do in a wrestling ring.

In a new countdown on, Kingston has been named the 17th Coolest Dad In America. The short article talks gives a general overview of Kingston, talking about his two children and his style in the ring. This is the second wrestler to be named as a good father in recent years, as Titus O’Neil was named Celebrity Dad of the Year by in 2015.

Add it to the list.

Kofi Kingston's 5 greatest moments

Opinion: I have to say this for Kingston a lot but good for him. Kingston continues to be one of the most likable guys in wrestling and this is another reason to find him that way. To still be an awesome dad while being on the road for such a large part of the year is even more impressive. I’d still love to see Kingston get a World Title run somewhere in his career, which is still cool, though not as important as being a good father.

What do you think of Kingston? Will he ever be a World Champion? Let us know in the comments below.
