Kofi Kingston: Scoring One for the Good Guys!

Matthew HesterSenior Writer IDecember 1, 2016

Hello, everyone. As always, I would like to thank all of you for spending some time with me today.


After watching a surprisingly pleasant episode of Raw last night, a couple of things came to mind. The first thing that popped in my head was: with a little effort, Vince can make Raw good.


The next thing that came to mind was just how good Kofi Kingston is turning out to be. I have said it before that I am a fan of heels. I always have been and most likely always will be.


With all that said, I can't help but enjoy watching this kid in the ring. He brings a breath of fresh air in the ring every time he wrestles. You can just tell that he really enjoys what he is doing and that is very nice to see in a wrestler.


It is also very refreshing to see someone that the kids can look up to besides John Cena. Unlike most of the current faces the fans just draw to him naturally. The fact is when he wrestles he just tends to bring smiles to everyone’s faces.


I can’t help but feel that other than Kofi, all the other faces feel phony to me. I can’t buy into Cena, or MVP as a face; to me it feels like it's forced with them.


With Kofi, though, it just comes naturally; whether this is a good thing for him, only time will tell.


Add into the mix the skills he brings to the table and you have a recipe for a bona fide superstar. He is an excellent worker and can soar in the air with the best of them. The only thing that can stop his acceleration in his career is an injury or he himself.


The only thing I would like to see out of Kofi now is some improvement on the stick, and maybe a turn as heel, just to see if he is able to pull it off. I know he wouldn’t turn anytime soon, but maybe down the road we can see one.


Since Kofi has become the U.S champ, it’s been hotter then it has ever been. That is saying a lot, considering how well Matt Hardy and MVP held the title. When he defends the belt, it actually feels like an important match.


Where Kofi’s career goes from here, no one knows. I don’t think he can get any hotter with out jumping into the heavyweight picture. While I don’t think that will happen any time soon, it would be nice to see.


As it stands now, Kofi will be either fighting either The Miz or Jack Swagger for the U.S. title. If done the right way, this could turn out to be an excellent feud that can accelerate Kofi’s career.


I think we will wind up seeing five-star matches no matter who he wrestles next. His days as champ may be numbered, but it shouldn’t hurt him too much. His run as champ has done wonders for his career.


I just hope the WWE does the right thing after he does drop the belt. There is no reason why he shouldn’t get thrown into the title mix.


It would not only elevate his status on the roster but it would also create some fresh new matches.


This man has earned a crack at the spotlight. It would be a shame and a scandal if he gets thrown back into midcard limbo. Lets just hope that the WWE does this kid right and reward this kid for all his hard work.


I would like to thank all of you for spending some time with me today.


As always, have a safe day and God bless.
