Hit the nail right on the head. Although personally, I think Kofi deserves at least one legit trial main event run (no, I don't mean to slap the WHC on him, just put him in a title chase against a strong heel and see how he does). Considering the fact that he never does anything storyline-wise, it's absolutely ridiculous how over he remains to be. I think he's better off as a staple of the midcard though. We need more prominent non-world champs these days.

Talent/charisma draws. Not size.

Re: Kofi Kingston - future main eventer or endless midcarder?

He will NEVER be a world champion & he should NEVER hold another title as long as he is there, this guy produces the worst title reigns everytime & the WWE just puts titles on him because they never have anything better for him to do he is just a guy that has no future and i pray that he gets his future endeavored one of these days, come to think of it that would be one hell of a christmas present.

Re: Kofi Kingston - future main eventer or endless midcarder?

Endless midcarder. The fact he's won so many midcard titles and hasn't advanced any higher in the company in YEARS, should be an indication of that. There's a slight possibility that if he stays loyal to the company for many years to come he may get a charity run with the World Title nearing the end of his career, like Booker T did, like Mark Henry did, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Re: Kofi Kingston - future main eventer or endless midcarder?

I could see him getting a stint in the ME a little while from now, maybe win the WHC once or twice (not the WWE Champion, he had the temerity to be born black) but for the most part I imagine he'll be a midcarder, kind of like Mysterio. I certainly wouldn't want to bet against him winning a world titles in the 5-10 years he has left at the WWE.

Nothing to complain about. It's a good life, this year alone he'll have spent more time a title holder then not one.

Re: Kofi Kingston - future main eventer or endless midcarder?

He should get a shot or two but I don't see him as 'champion'. He reminds me of a Shamrock, Steamboat, or a Perfect - guys who competed against or with the main eventers (Rock, Savage, Flair) but never reached that upper-echelon of becoming champ.

Re: Kofi Kingston - future main eventer or endless midcarder?

Hes holding a title because thats the only way he can stay relevant, that guy is the hardest pushed jobber in the company, when is the last time he actually had a feud that didnt involve a title? let me guess 2009? he is just taking up space for someone that can actually move up in the company and actually use the IC/Tag/US to his advantage to make something of themselves.

Re: Kofi Kingston - future main eventer or endless midcarder?

He's just so vanilla. He's got no character and has been boring for years. His title reigns mean nothing and he's not had any memorable feud (only feud I see ppl mentioning is 2009 against Orton, I missed that though). I remember when he was given the mic in a pre-Elimination Chamber (at least I think it was EC) debate. I was hoping we would show some passion, or just anything that would get me interested in him. Instead he just said sth like "I know I'm the underdog, but hey, this might just be my day...blabla". Super uninspired and boring delivery. Since then I've given up on him as a potential top-guy. I think he just doesn't have IT.

No. I think he'll be a life time mid carder in the WWE.

Re: Kofi Kingston - future main eventer or endless midcarder?

Seems like wrestling is just a job to this guy, and not a dream. He doesn't have the passion for the business like you see with guys such as The Rock, or HBK.

So, you pray a guy loses his job? You're a moronic scumbag.
