The curious case of Kofi Kingston. If there's one person I feel bad for in the WWE, it's this man. Back in 2009, he began his push to the main event by feuding with the Viper, Randy Orton. Things took a turn for the worse.
To sum it up, Kofi botched a spot where he was supposed to dodge Orton's punt, attempt the Trouble in Paradise, and get RKO'd. He was in a position where he couldn't get punted, so Orton just RKO'd him and was furious about it.
Calling Kofi stupid repeatedly and even dropping an F-Bomb. Seriously, if you're a star like Randy Orton, under no conditions should you lose your temper over a small botch, one that didn't hurt yourself or anyone else, and you should never drop an F-Bomb on TV, ever.
I digressed, let me get back on track. He was ready in the eyes of management for the main event, but since that incident, has been in the mid-card ever since. He has some pretty exciting matches and can do some pretty cool spots. I think what he needs most is to improve on his mic skills.
Some believe he should turn Heel, but I don't see that happening any time soon. He's over with the crowd as a Face, so why turn him if there's an abundance of mid-card Heels. Unless he's getting pushed to the main event, he should stay face.
