Kofi Kingston has been a WWE mainstay since debuting on ECW back in 2007, but he has been unable to break through to the main event. There is no question that Kingston has a few weaknesses that are holding him back, but he has several good qualities as well that would make him a believable main-eventer.
Kingston won the Intercontinental title for the fourth time in his impressive WWE career on Wednesday when he defeated The Miz on Main Event. That would seem to suggest that Kofi won't be entering the main event picture any time soon, but I feel he'll be ready if ever called upon.
The WWE is constantly trying to push new stars and get them to the next level, and Kofi is a guy who has already done everything he can possibly do in his current role. Kingston is obviously still very valuable to the midcard scene, but the WWE ought to see what it truly has in Kofi by giving him a chance to prove himself on a bigger stage.
