This one is actually a bit out of left field. Still, it's one I've mulled over for awhile so bear with me on this one.
Kofi Kingston and CM Punk haven't actually had any real contact. I can't even tell you when they last faced off. Still, there's a little bit of history here. The ECW alumni are former World Tag Team Championship partners, taking the titles from Priceless on Raw, before later dropping them to John Morrison and The Miz.
Afterward, I don't think it's too hard to tell who's had the better career. Since that time, CM Punk has gone on to great fame and success, with an extremely long WWE title reign and two main-event matches against The Rock.
As of now, the "Straight Edge Superstar" is on a collision course with "The Deadman," as he attempts to end Undertaker's undefeated streak at Mania 29.
Kingston, at this point, may find himself in a tag match with Zack Ryder vs. Catering.
It's a classic tale of the jealous friend who could be woven with Kingston and Punk. I mean, it really wouldn't be out of the question to say that Kofi could think himself a better wrestler than his former tag team partner.
(I personally prefer Punk, but Kofi isn't a slouch in the ring himself.) In fact, Punk may have inadvertently let his friend down in a way. Allow me to explain.
Everyone remembers CM Punk's very first shoot, which sent him to the main event. I'm sure we all remember the name dropping of Vladimir Kozlov, Chris Masters and Colt Cabana. I'm sure we all remember how Punk called himself the "Voice of the Voiceless" and promised change (and ice cream bars).
So, who's to say that, maybe, some of the guys who were still there may have thought Punk was talking about them. Maybe Kofi thought Punk was gonna help out an old friend, to get the chance he felt he deserved.
I'm sure we all know how that turned out. With the Kofi Kingston heel turn going through the rumor mill. Perhaps, this is a feud we get to see somewhere down the line. I assume we'll see it before we get those ice cream bars, at the very least.
