What he really needs is a manager. Slap him with someone like Vickie & people would care about him. Mainly because it would at least make him different. He hasn't changed during his entire WWE run, sans dropping the Jamaican accent.
He is more over then sin cara and del rio. Plus he gets good pops even after floating around soon nothing.

Turning him heel would be a mistake I feel. I can't see him at all as a heel and different is not always better. What kofi needs is to be more aggressive like he was during his feud with orton

He should definitely get a shot and I'm still holding out hope that one day he will. He is a great & consistent worker, charismatic, over and is decent on the mic. He's hit & miss and sometimes he's the victim of shitty writing. His promo against Miz on Main Event was great. He was serious and the line about a dagger being behind his smile was great.

His character is fine. He's the smiling babyface but he has a energy about him that gets the crowd going. There are other guys who are just as bland & generic like Ziggler, ADR & even Punk now that have been in Main Event feuds. The crowd responds to him unlike a lot of the guys this forum considers great.

He will never be the face of the company but he fits the Rey Mysterio role perfectly. He'll be an upper mid-card/main event player. He's the perfect babyface for the Mysterio/Jeff Hardy underdog feel good story push. I guarantee fans would eat it.

Kofi has literally had 2 legit feuds in his career. 1 against Orton & his feud with Miz this year. In both he got the fans really behind him. He showed he can handle himself on the mic too. When WWE acts like they care about him he delivers.

he is a great worker, sells merchandise, extremely professional & most importantly fans like him. Some of you on this thread don't but it really doesn't matter. You can talk about how he doesn't have a character or his bland & generic but he has shown the ability to get the crowd behind him time & time again. There really isn't a reason he should be given 1 shot to prove himself.

He'll get one 2 to 3 month World Heavyweight Championship reign near retirement, just like Mark Henry. Beyond that, endless midcarding. He'll definitely win the B world title, WWE title is out of the question.

You know Ricky Steamboat did win "the big one" just putting that out there.


But with the right build up and a little tweaking, he could be a main eventer one day. Not everyone could be the face of a company but he would be one of the go-to main eventers in the future.

Now that I read through this thread, I am starting to wonder what other storylines he had besides the one with Orton. What DO we know about Kofi Kingston the character besides he's faux Jamacian and can do aerial moves? What foods does he like? What are his pet peeves? What are his thoughts on world events? Did he like school as a child? If so what subjects?

The naysayers have a point here with the character that could easily be fixed by at least attempting to give him a story arc. Once they give him that chance,i'm sure he would knock that out of the park.

This. There will always be a glass ceiling.

Everything that you said was completely wrong. Your blind hate for Kofi is getting ridiculous.

Another will Kofi main even thread. I've been a strong supporter of him all these years but I don't foresee any type of push until at least next year MITB ppv. At this point it's tiresome seeing him languish in this perpetual state of limbo with his character. If they ever do pull the trigger on him it'll be a mark out moment for sure.
