If they didn't pull the trigger in 2009 after MSG, then they never will.

If your answer is "an energetic happy jumping guy" then his character is not fine.

I dislike Kofi Kingston. When he debuted I thought he was a cool Jamaican pulling a Capoeira-like style. Then I saw he was only a guy jumping and flipping and being "dynamic". When they dropped the Jamaican gimmick he turned into a generic gimmickless guy.

His only gimmick is being a highflyer but his highflyer maneuvers are crap. He simply jumps high. Trent Barreta, Húnico, Sin Cara or Justin Gabriel are way better highflyers.

Good look? Being a generic guy with abs in generic trunks, kickpads and wristbands is a good look? He has nothing unique, special or memorable. His only "stand out" point is his ridiculously spasmodic style.

So despite the guy has some charisma and his jumping style is over with the children, I don't see anything in his character(in fact he has no character, personality, gimmick or unique look, which makes him atrociously boring for me). Besides his wrestling-style and taunts for me are the opposite of solid.

Conclussion: 2012 Kofi musn't be a future main eventer. Give the guy a new gimmick or character, new gear and some new moves and we will see.

No wonder he and CM Punk are good friends, they are in the same situation.

That piece of shit should stay in the undercard for life. I hated when he took the IC Title off Miz

I could see Kofi being a main eventer. Some of you guys are so such hot heads that you think any character that is not an Attitude Era throwback is a bad character. I bet that with the right buildup, a WWE tite win for him would be very cool to see. I think alot of people would be happy for him. I just find it weird that some of you bash Kofi's mic work yet praise someone like Punk just because he says Mike instead of Miz.

He's a decent mid-carder. But that's all he'll ever be.

Well said!

Kofi needs some major changes to trigger a proper interest and watching the product today, I doubt that will ever happen.

I still remember how Miz dismantled Kofi on the mic. People like to put the two in the same boat, but I highly disagree and claim that Miz beats Kofi in every department. Kofi won the IC title from Miz and beat him like what? 4 times? Still the Miz got me more hooked with a single promo than Kofi did with 4 wins over him. I think that speaks enough for itself.

No, he's not. He's exactly on par with all of those guys. Christian, Damien Sandow, Cody Rhodes, all of those mid-card guys that do nothing but trade wins back-and-forth.

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.
