Re: Kofi Kingston Sucks
Okay, first of all, it's wrong to say that Kofi 'sucks'. He doesn't.
But let's be clear about this, his gimmick - if one can call it that - most certainly does suck. What is his persona anyway? He smiles, he shouts 'boom', it's all so bland, so utterly forgettable. And what bugs me about it is that we saw flashes of greatness during his feud with Orton. Flashes of a mature, respectable wrestler who fans of all ages could get behind.
Now, this isn't all his fault. It's a result of one very simple fact, the midcard is full of generic talent with absolutely nothing to help us tell them apart. Kofi was allowed to shine because he was against a talent like Orton. But against nobodies like Curt Hawkins? Or floundering talent like Ziggler? He isn't going to impress anyone apart from in regards to his ring work.
It's the oldest concept there is.
Build better heels to make people give a shit about the faces. Kofi can still be a carefree, likeable guy. But he needs a heel who brings out his mean side. Same goes for Brodus Clay.
