Re: Kofi NEEDS to go.

I've never really liked Kofi Kingston but i'm looking at the other options for WWE Champion right now and there's like five or six guys ahead of him. The WWE Championship should be passing around Black, Andrade, Finn, Owens, Reigns & Rusev over the next few years. That's a solid main event division, could even throw Mahal & Nakamura back into the mix for a reign. I enjoyed Jinder's first reign and apparently Vince had promised him a second so don't be surprised if he ends up winning the title again. I'd love it!!

I can't believe people are actually wanting Big E to go heel and beat Kofi, he'd be an even worse WWE Champion than Kofi character wise.

Batista / Trish Stratus / Chris Jericho / Kurt Angle / Gail Kim / CM Punk / Christian
Seth Rollins / AJ Styles / Cesaro / The Revival / Drew McIntyre / EC3
Finn Balor / Andrade / Randy Orton / Buddy Murphy / Jinder Mahal
Johnny Gargano / Roderick Strong / Travis Banks / Fabian Aichner / Dominik Dijakovic
Drew Gulak / Akira Tozawa / Chad Gable / Ariya Daviari / Noam Dar / Tony Nese
Billie Kay / Mandy Rose / Dana Brooke / Ember Moon / Io Shirai / Jinny / Natalya / Vanessa Bourne / Isla Dawn
Was At Wrestlemania 25, 26, 27, 28, 30 & 32!!!

Re: Kofi NEEDS to go.

I think Kofi is a fine mid card champion but I just dont see him as a WWE Title guy. Bryan should have retained and maybe lost it at SummerSlam to someone.

Re: Kofi NEEDS to go.

If you're looking at the MITB candidates though, who is better than Kofi? Andrade might be one day, and Randy Orton might be a better whole package now, but neither is exactly super-stimulating as SmackDown champ.

Who would have thought an African-American Man becoming champion would have sparked so much outrage?

...as well as cries for a guy who has flopped EVERY TIME he was given the spotlight to be pushed back into it!

Re: Kofi NEEDS to go.

yeah i said this would happen. just like rey mysterio, people root for a guy who clearly was never supposed to be champion, he has his feel good moment then everyone is sick of him after a month. although rey was mostly bad booking and kofi is just... bad.

Re: Kofi NEEDS to go.

WWE championship is fake, I know, but it supposed to be important in the storyline. It's not something to be awarded to losers just because he's been there for ten years. That's not a world champion, it's a participation award.

Imagine if there's a horrible boxer who sucks so badly but then the WBA president says "oh you've been with us for so long, I'm gonna give you the world belt." Make no fucking sense.

Being that you acknowledge that the WWE Title is "fake" you should be well aware that it is the writers and ultimately Vince McMahon that decides who the "winners" and "losers" are. Kofi got overwhelming support being thrown into a storyline that wasn't meant for him and in which the original performer was not supposed to go as far as he did. The support for Kofi was so overwhelming FROM THE FANS that the WWE could not ignore it and who better to go with than a guy that is well liked and respected in and out of the ring.

Now, in real life, people get promotions every day that many feel they do not deserve. I am sure if you were on a job for over a decade and management offered you a promotion despite there being more "deserving" or "qualified" people in line for it you would not turn it down...now, would you?

This thread is bullshit, kofis title reigns only been a month, & it's already better than AJ Styles title reign. I like AJ but that reign was boring AF. Kofis over with the fans, & is great at promos and wrestling. Your just more ppl who wanna bitch about everything in wrestling.

Kevin Owens has never once flopped. If he was actually given the ball properly and allowed to run with it, he would be a mega star. The problem is that he has constantly been buried and made to look like shit.
