Re: What did Kofi possess that Rusev or Nakamura did not?
Nakamura unfortunately, in the ring, never really sparked much of anything. He at a time was over because of hype, and with slightly better booking, he could've had a chance...but he just kept having dud after dud in the ring. Still think he should be a big time heel US champion though.
Rusev on the other hand...well... why the FUCK did they break up Rusev Day? Rusev day could have been tag teem champs until mania. Him and Aiden were over as hell. Rusev would never have the type of reaction Kofi's getting long term, but still.
Kofi's story was good timing, good placement, and the fans resonated with him. I wish he'd change it up a bit though.
the brand split sucks
