Re: What did Kofi possess that Rusev or Nakamura did not?
Kofi was more over, always has been even since they first thought of pushing him back in 2009, the man always had a way of firing up a crowd.
Nakamura was dead the moment he hit main roster, the crowd have slowly lost interest in him since then. Is he even still on TV?
As for Rusev, the whole Rusev Day gimmick was 80% Aiden English... No one cared about Rusev and it shows now since when they split them. Rusev has been exposed without English to be his hype guy.
Kofi has consistently been over throughout his career. The man is just so likable. Every time he came out he got a good reaction, mostly from casuals back then, and now he has the hardcore audience too, so Kofi pretty much nailed both demographics, Rusev and Nakamura really only appeal to small groups of hardcore fans. I dont even think most hardcore fans care about them anymore lol. Kofi pretty much nailed demographics that Cena and Reigns couldn't lol. Shame he cannot boost ratings but you cannot win them all.
