Re: Kofi Kingston Sucks

I totally agree. I don't like his gimmick at all, the only person that smiles as much as he does is Layla and it really distracts me. People shouldn't be so cheery when they're wrestling. His moveset is also lacking, in my opinion. He jumps high and that's it. He doesn't have any flashy moves like most high flyers and I haven't seen him do much on the technical side either. He does a springboard clothesline when he could maybe do something like a springboard tornado DDT.

I dunno. He's basically playing from the RVD playbook. Everybody loves RVD. Folks could love Kofi if the WWE would act like he's somebody they're supposed to really get into.

Good, I'm glad. Even if people don't share my opinion, I do hope that they don't get locked in their opinions & are able to re-assess performers over time.

If someone were to make a Kofi Kingston compilation DVD, what matches would be on it? Of those matches, how many would be in spite of Kofi being in the match, not because he was in it? Are you going to include Money in the Bank matches, or Elimination Chamber matches?

People shit on John Cena all the time but he would not have a problem filling up a DVD with good-to-great matches but it could be argued that he's been given more opportunities to thrive. The best people can do for Kofi is name-drop a TV match against Dolph Ziggler with commercial breaks or talk about him pouring paint on a car in a feud with Randy Orton (and he even fucked that up when he spiked the bucket, almost fell down, & got paint all over himself).

Oh, the implication is clear.

If you have the same color skin, you should be a team. Nay, you MUST be a team.

Look at the tag team tournament brackets.

WHITE: Rhodes Scholars, Marella/Ryder, Kidd/Gabriel
BLACK: Prime Time Players, Kofi/Truth
SAMOAN: Usos
MEXICAN: Mysterio/Sin Cara
PUERTO RICAN: Primo/Epico

And oh, by the way....

WHITE: Kane/Bryan


God, this third hour of Raw really drags...

Re: Kofi Kingston Sucks

I really like the guy and I think he has interesting talent....

His problem is with his gimmick, he has become very stale with his SOS character and I think he desperately need a new gimmick or even a heel turn if necessary.
