What a squash

With the way Kofi has been booked since his super push started, I thought he was going to kick out of multiple F5's.

Glad his reign is over.

Re: Kofi's reign of terror is over!!!

To the Kofi haters... Kofi was WWE champion. None of you couch muffin tops will ever be that. Hate all you want with your "expert knowledge" on what makes a WWE champion. But he is a success and a true inspiration to those who have lives and want to better themselves. Sitting around on a computer, bitching about a prop, used for a scripted universe is beyond pathetic. And I say this from someone who watches the show strictly for entertainment purposes.... You guys look and sound like the nerds that everyone clowns who arent heavy into Wrestling like this. Grown ass men hating on the WWE for giving someone an opportunity to use this prop to enhance their career and marketability.

Seriously, Kofi Kingston's reign was fun. It was a breath of fresh air. And anyone expecting him to be the rock or stone cold steve austin level Hot with the title.. Get over the fucking attitude era. Get over the past. You still watch a product you constantly bitch about 24/7. It's entertainment, and half of you arent entertained by the product yet still watch it. I really want you guys to reevaluate some shit...

SMH...

Again I'm there with you.

Kofi shouldn't have been champion. But Kofi's not the first random upjumped midcarder to become champion. Hell he's not even the second or third.

We're in an era of smaller, skinnier, guys. That's just how it is. Those are, generally speaking, the types of people becoming wrestlers. We're also in an era, so far as WWE's concerned, of shitty, lazy, half-assed booking, that's not unique to Kofi's reign that's just par for a shitty WWe product.

If you don't like the former it's just an unfortunate time for you to be a wrestling fan and I have no real solution, if you don't like the later... well... my only solution would be try AEW like I'm going to but that might conflict with the first issue.





... Also Triple H didn't just cheat to win. He would win the first match dirty, then win the second stipulation match clean. That was the format. Month after month after month after month. Win a singles match dirty. Win a stipulation match clean. Win a singles match dirty. Win a stipulation match clean. Month after month after month. Steiner, Van Dam, Kane, Michaels. Month after month after month. Meanwhile the rest of the show was great, wrestlers were hitting their strides, creative was clicking, and yet interest declined partially because, not entirely I'm not trying to pin the decline squarely on Triple H in any way, but PARTIALLY because Triple H would win a singles match dirty and then win a stipulation match clean, win a singles match dirty and then win a stipulation match clean, win a singles match dirty and then win a stipulation match clean. Month after month after month.

Only hardcore fans on the internet over analyse and think about shit like that.
But ....but... Kofi can NEVER recover from a squash like that. Remember when Seamus best Daniel Bryan, Daniel was never heard from again.
Oh wait........

Re: Kofi's reign of terror is over!!!

So they go from a pancake tossing bore to two UFC guys.

So we've gone from something shit to something even shitter.

The roster has been completely shit on tonight.

Nice one WWE

And if you hated and you're crying over how Brock won, you weren't paying attention. Kofi took Lesnar lightly and basically no-sold how much of a beast he is, it was like as if Brock was just another mid-card challenger like Joe or Ziggler. Then we saw what Brock did on Monday.

If you honestly expected a competitive, back-and-forth match in this situation, that's on you.
Yeah shame on those fans wanting a competitive world title match, what were they thinking?

And knowing something is coming doesnt make it any less shitty when it actually does happen.

Gimme a break.

Yeah theres been undeserving midcarders as champions in the past but none of them got the Superman booking Kofi got, none of them defeated main eventer after main eventer in 1 match, being put through tables and going on to defeat a guy like Samoa Joe and Orton within minutes. Yeah that was before his title win but thats the kind of booking he has gotten since his push started, it was ridiculous.

No one could beat this guy, he would hit 1 lame spinning kick and guys would be dead, main event guys he couldn't have dreamed of beating just a year ago.

Like a pancake-throwing geek is gonna give Lesnar a competitive match.

Your tears are my sustenance. I love it. Brock rules.

Samoa Joe, to my immense dissatisfaction, has been booked as a jobber though. At this point Brooklyn Brawler would probably beat Joe in a match.

Similarly Orton, while obviously having great kayfabe success, has also been used time and time again to lose to new champions because in WWe's mind "loses wont hurt him". Jinder, Swagger, Del Rio, Sheamus. Orton has lost to ALL of them.

These guys obviously shouldn't be booked this way, more so Joe than Orton since it could be argued beating Orton still "means something" while beating Joe, again to my immense dissatisfaction, means NOTHING because WWe refuses to let Joe win a single God damn match, but it's Vince's sandbox and he's seemingly determined for his show to suck.

I don't know who else Kofi beat but I have to assume that most of Kofi's matches were booked the same way, or at least mostly the same way. Stare down, tie up, heel beat down, babyface come back, finisher. It's WWe's lazy, cut and paste, booking. I'm sure the stories were ass too, but again this is EVERYWHERE in WWe.

Shitty product gonna shitty product.

Era of Terror not Reign of Terror.
