Re: Kofi Kingston Sucks
Took me a while to comment because I needed to calm down.
1. Kofi is a very good wrestler. Yes, his move-set his watered down by WWE. He is advertised as a high flyer, not a technical wrestler so why would his move-set be technical heavy? He does his job as a high flyer extremely well. To anybody who says he isn't a high flyer, please define what a high flyer is and tell me how he doesn't fit that description.
He has had great matches with the likes of Orton, Jericho, Edge, Ziggler and Punk. Please don't tell me these guys have great matches with anybody because I can tell you a match all these guys have been in that was shit. Even Ziggler. Kinda hard to argue that a guy can't wrestle when he has the matches to prove so.
2. You basically claim he's has settled in his career and is not trying to improve or get higher up the card. Then you go on to use CM Punk as a guy who fought for what he got and act like he was never handed anything. Punk wasn't some jobber before he was WWE Champion. He had been ECW Champion, 2X MITB winner and WHC multiple times. WWE has consistently given him pushes feuds and storylines. Kofi has had one feud in his career. Thats against Randy Orton and he was great. GTFO of here with that "he botched a match ending". Its not like he botched a move and got somebody hurt or ruined a match. Orton hit the RKO and it was over. Most people wouldn't have noticed if Orton didn't act like a psychotic asshole. He had several matches with Orton beforehand that he was awesome in.
3. Kofi is an black man in WWE. What do you expect him to do? He can't go into Vince's office and demand a push. He'll be fired before he can finish that sentence. Unlike guys like Punk & Bryan, Kofi has a ceiling on his career. He'll be WHC at best because Vince doesn't allow blacks to hold his WWE championship. Hell, the black guys who became WHC didn't until their careers were almost over(Booker T & Mark Henry). Please don't say "There aren't any black wrestlers that deserved to hold the WWE title" because thats bullshit. I can name plenty who had the talent and where never given the chance like lesser talented wrestlers of other races were.
You might not like Kofi but he's over with the crowd. He always gets them on their feet which means he is entertaining them. Isn't that the point? I'll take Kofi going out there jumping around and getting the crowd hyped over Tyson Kidd going out and getting fuckin crickets when he wrestles. The crowd enjoys his character. I'm not saying it doesn't need to be tweaked a little but if they like it why should he completely change it? Your opinion isn't fact. You didn't give on good reason as to why he isn't a good wrestler other than you don't like his style. There isn't one reason from a business stand point that says Kofi should be pushed.
