Okay, first of all, it's wrong to say that Kofi 'sucks'. He doesn't.
But let's be clear about this, his gimmick - if one can call it that - most certainly does suck. What is his persona anyway? He smiles, he shouts 'boom', it's all so bland, so utterly forgettable. And what bugs me about it is that we saw flashes of greatness during his feud with Orton. Flashes of a mature, respectable wrestler who fans of all ages could get behind.

Now, this isn't all his fault. It's a result of one very simple fact, the midcard is full of generic talent with absolutely nothing to help us tell them apart. Kofi was allowed to shine because he was against a talent like Orton. But against nobodies like Curt Hawkins? Or floundering talent like Ziggler? He isn't going to impress anyone apart from in regards to his ring work.

It's the oldest concept there is.
Build better heels to make people give a shit about the faces. Kofi can still be a carefree, likeable guy. But he needs a heel who brings out his mean side. Same goes for Brodus Clay.

Kofi is a great athlete with a bad gimmick. He deserves better.

You can't really give a gimmick to someone who has no personality, unless your name is Harrison Ford. Kingston just can't act out another persona. I also feel like once HHH buried him by calling his bluff it basically took the wind out of his sail. I agree that he sucks, but he has a fan base. His response from fans at house shows is a big deal, and that's a reason I feel he is still around. He puts on an exciting show, and even though he won't main event you don't get rid of Kofi Kingston.

Kofi is great, but his gimmick sucks and creative has nothing for him. He has excellent wrestling skills and above-average mic skills. If given the chance, he could shine. However, I think he needs to turn heel in order to do it. His current babyface gimmick is terrible.

Kofi's a really talented worker but his act/gimmick whatever you want to call it is beyond stale at this point. Creative needs to come up with something new for him.

turn him heel. give him a Jamaican drug dealer or gangsta gimmick. smoking weed during his entrance.

similar to Little Jacob from GTA 4. I'll become his fan immediately!

So, Kofi managed to have good (not GREAT) matches with five of the better workers of the last 10 years? Incredible!

And what difference does it make that Ziggler's had bad matches? Bret Hart and Bob Backlund shit a brick on live pay per view at WrestleMania XI. Who cares? Kofi shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as Ziggler, and I actually like Kofi.

Alex Riley gets a reaction because he has one of the best entrance themes in the post-Attitude era, and this is coming from a HUGE Riley fan.

Oh, now who's being a racist? Jingoist. Whatever.
