Over the last four-plus years, Kofi Kingston has quietly developed into the WWE's biggest workhorse.
He's the baby face that the company goes to in times of need.
Whether it's for a spot in the Royal Rumble or Elimination Chamber or for a Raw match to make a heel look good, Kingston is there.
Along the way, he's developed into one of the WWE's best all-around in-ring performers, and he's as over as any mid-carder in the company.
Yet, amazingly enough, Kingston's main event level opportunities have been pretty rare.
Aside from his feud with Randy Orton in late 2009, Kingston has spent the majority of his WWE career as a mid-carder who's just a notch below the main event and World title pictures.
Well, that's in the eyes of the WWE, because in my view, he's ready and more than deserving of a main event run.
There are virtually no WWE stars that aren't main eventers who have performed consistently great for such a long period as Kingston.
The fans love him, they appreciate all of his hard work, and they recognize that he's one of the best workers in the WWE.
Now, it's time for the WWE to recognize it as well by doing the right thing and giving Kingston a chance to become a World champion.
