Re: Kofi Kingston Sucks
Watch the Jr interviews Austin, and CM Punk for WWE 13 video. You will hear Austin mention only two names, and it's Cena, and Punk. Austin, and the same has been said by Jim Ross that many of the stars right now are happy with just being on television. That may be true, but consider this. Right now the WWE is PG. Creatively I would think that there are certain limitations on many stars including Kofi Kingston. At the same time look at who is writing this shit.
Not every wrestler knows what to come up with, and that is why you hire creative help that can see the star in the wrestler before that wrestler does. Austin knew he had a strong pitch before he decided to drop the Ringmaster gimmick. The same can be said for HBK, or The Rock. These people are rare, and some stars like Hulk Hogan have to be made. Vince McMahon saw what kind of star he could turn Terry Bollea in to. The same with The Undertaker, John Cena, Diesel, Razor Ramon, and many others. Guys who come forward with ideas are rare, and even more rare are the ones that are memorable.
People seem to forget that this is show biz. Kofi may not be the best in ring performer, but he isn't average either. His work in the ring is typically good, with some spot here, and there. Kingston may not have "it", but he is worth keeping around because he is marketable. Kofi is a "face" for life, and I don't mind that. I'm tired of guys going back, and forth from "face" to "heel". This means that Kofi is a "static" character. Kingston is always perfect for a rare upset, or sever wild card character. You need "static" characters like Kofi because it keeps things consistent.
