Default Kingston vs Gabriel, best of five?

I know this sounds a bit random, but I just think that a best of five series would be awesome to see between to similar styled wrestlers. Both are "face", and I think it makes the matches that much more interesting. Obviously, it stretches to the fifth match, and Kingston battles back from a 2-0 deficit vs Justin. Kofi figures that since Gabriel was such a strong competitor that he deserves to a shot at his Intercontinental title. Kingston wins his title defense vs Gabriel, but not without controversy.

The match should end with Gabriel just kicking out at the three count. However the referee counts three despite Gabriel coming to after Kofi's "Trouble in Paradise" to the skull. Justin would shake hands with Kofi at the end of the match, and raise his hand. Even then Justin takes his argument to twitter, and touts his views of the match as well later on that night. I would even have a pole in which the WWE asks the WWE Universe if Gabriel kicked out on time? The fake poles should suggest a 51-49 rating amongst the fans that say he did.

Being the competitor that he is Kingston says that he will award Gabriel another match for his Intercontinental title, and it will be a Ladder Match. I would have Kingston win that Ladder Match as well, and neither man turn heel. I honestly think a "face" vs "face" feud is something must needed right now just to keep things open. Most fans just expect a heel turn, or an upset title victory. This gets fans behind both stars, and if they boo one, or the other who cares. Give the fans the freedom to either cheer both men, or split it down the middle themselves.

Your argument makes the false assumption that the WWE considers its viewers intelligent.

idk about a best of 5 series but I'd be all for a ladder match involving those 2. That would be interesting.

In my opinion there is no point. Justin Gabriel is a legit high-flyer with a good look and a solid moveset while Kofi Kingston is just a jumping spasmodic monkey-not racist pun intended. Justin deserves a gimmick and a push.

I don't mean this to offend you, but I think this is exactly what's wrong with wrestling fans today. Wrestling is to predictable these days, and mainly due to the fact that it's still good guy vs bad guy. They may all act like it's otherwise, but we know how it all still works. Personally, I have always found that a face vs face match can be interesting especially with two solid ring artists like Kingston, and to a certain extent Justin Gabriel. Who do the fans get behind? Both are popular amongst the fans, and the atmosphere is provided prior to them facing off in the ring.

We know typically how most WWE matches come to a result especially considering the men, or ladies involved. In this instance you want to protect both men, so the creativity in the ending of their matches takes more time, and focus. Which could ultimately lead to better matches, and less predictable outcomes. We know that we aren't going to see either man cheat, and I think that makes this more interesting. A best of five series easily takes them in to a PPV finale. I think of wrestling like I view sports to a certain extent. Damien Sandow vs Santino is equivalent to Patriots vs Chiefs. The same way Austin vs Rock is like Steelers vs Ravens.

Two well established wrestling names, and football franchises. Yes, there can be good guy/bad guy in football, but it usually associated with home, or away. However, the idea here is that when you have two equally solid forces going head to head it's more exciting because of the "uncertainty" as to who will win. Undoubtedly have situations in wrestling, or football where you have an undesirable match up like Sheamus vs Jinder Mahal, or Falcons vs Jaguars. At least the Jaguars have a fair chance to win, while in wrestling we know Mahal more than likely won't win without cheating.

This is where wrestling takes that awkward left turn that no other sport has to deal with, and that's scripted results. Yes, the better talent has to win, but at least give people the notion that the other guy has a chance. When you are dealing with two commonly popular face stars like Gabriel, and Kingston people can easily be manipulated one way, or the other as to who may actually win. Clean wins are rare, and even more rare with two face stars going one on one.

I wouldn't mind the odd "face v face - put on a show" matches but they probably don't do well ratings wise sadly.

It would be a great way to establish Gabriel but I doubt the WWE would ever do this.

Gabriel is way more of a ring artist than Kingston. Just sayin. Kofi moves so funny like. Almost like a graceful drunk guy while Gabriels moves flow out smoother than mango smoothie

No thanks. I don't want to see two no-personalities in Kingston and Gabriel compete in five pointless matches. I'd rather have Sandow take the IC Title from Kofi and have an established reign of many months while getting that slow and steady push to the top, but instead they're treating Sandow like shit while giving us a poor Kofi/Barrett program that Barrett is so above.
