Re: Kofi Kingston Sucks

Kofi plays a great babyface and is a great wrestler. Every wrestler is formulaic and does certain moves to elicit a positive/negative response from a crowd and Kofi is no different. Kofi has made one hell of a successful career as a mid carder and has paid his dues and is long overdue for a main event push. For whatever reason he hasn't been pushed in debatable but I know if he was given the chance he'd be a mainstay for years to come.

the last thing Vince should do is punish a black wrestler on TV he's already punished them enough.

Re: Kofi Kingston Sucks

Kofi gets free travel and in style. He used to travel with Punk, then Punk got a bus but he still lets Kofi travel with him on his bus.

So I mean regardless of his career, he's got that going for him.

Re: Kofi Kingston Sucks

Couldn't agree more. How this "Kofi is great" Internet myth started is beyond me. He's one of the worst wrestlers in the company, and people think he should be main-eventing. Baffling.

No one is asking Vince to punish him on-air. If you're talking about my use of Kofi being a potential example, I specifically said off-air.

WWE is a giant corporation now but all the wrestlers are still independent contractors. They don't need stock options, they need to get their fire back. They need a Paul Heyman-esque pep talk & a kick in the ass. Instead there's just apathy everywhere.

Re: Kofi Kingston Sucks

We need some new babyfaces to take over and freshen up the main event. Guys on the board love to suck off the flavor of the month heel that pops and clamors for their main event push. It's tiresome and in the end the son of a bitch will be fed to Cena in the end anyway.

Re: Kofi Kingston Sucks

Kofi Kingston:
- Charismatic
- Over
- Good in ring talent

Wow! What do you know, what mid card wrestler is supposed to be.

Why the hell would Kofi risk getting fired and not being able to support himself for no reason?

Do you know what the real world is? WWE is a JOB. Not a WWE simulator.

And guess what going above and beyond gets you. The Ryder treatment. Or AW treatment. Take your pick.

Re: Kofi Kingston Sucks

Op is aping Brandon Stroud so bad it's hilarious. Even his comebacks in this thread are rather Stroud-ian.

I agree though. Kofi is boring as can be.

Well, I already addressed the "Ryder treatment." Calling Kofi a "Good in ring talent" is an opinion, not a fact, as I think the exact opposite. Why would someone aspire to just be average? That's the reason I posted the Jim Ross video. Is there anything you said in this post that I haven't already talked about? I even gave Kofi credit & acknowledged that he's over & carryable.

Eventually someone will show up that is hungry & goes above & beyond. Hell, Punk is where he is at now because he did so. It's no coincidence. But if the future is going to be more of the same, people only doing the bare minimum to keep their jobs, than they're in serious trouble.
