Kofi Kingston Says He Would Make A Good Heel

New WWE United States Champion Kofi Kingston was recently interviewed by the UK’s Evening Times to promote this week’s overseas live events tour. Here are highlights of what he said about:

Returning Overseas With WWE:

“This is one of the tours we look forward to the most as the environment and culture are both very different to the USA. We often hear some pretty unique football chants at the Scottish shows.”

Part-Time Wrestlers In Top WrestleMania Matches:

“The Rock and Brock Lesnar have really paved the way for guys like me. Maybe somewhere down the line we can be the ones coming back for the big appearances and there is certainly a desire for young talent to come through to high profile matches. I’m sure you’ll see that in the coming years.”

Turning Heel:

“Everybody on Twitter seems to want me to turn bad… I would try my hand at anything and I think I could do it well.”

    I’d actually like to see Kofi do what booker seems like he’s doing. Let his 10+ title reigns make an ego for Kingston leading him to come out interrupting peoples promos, being a douche on commentary, tie his hair or cut it, wear suits, come out with a valet. Kofi is very dull honestly because he has faced all the guys in the mid card status that are heels, now its time they turn him heel so he can start beating on some faces.

      Makes sense to me

      I would not cut Kofi’s dreads. Even as a heel I actually like the dreads. I had the idea of letting him adopt the crazy Jamaican gimmick when he was in ECW. I still think that gimmick could work even if he doesn’t have the stupid accent.

    • RealKRone88

      I’d approve of it. He ought to branch out as a heel, because there’s really nothing left for him as a face at the moment.

  • BrahmaBullRKO

    There’s only one way to find out.

    WWE just needs to turn Orton heel already and give the fans what they want. That man does not even look happy anymore. I can’t blame him. If you’re gonna keep him in the middle card for awhile at least make him heel.

    Kofi sounds like he’s such a tool. “Oh, you fans think I should be heel? Let me flip my switch to heel.” As if it isn’t necessary for it to make any logical or storyline sense.

      how is it necessary? Mae Young is pregnant again. case closed

        It isn’t always necessary, but lately we have seen enough face/heel turns with very little reason to the point that it is blatantly insulting the audience’s intelligence. Logic doesn’t always find itself into every segment, but I’m pretty sure the audience would like a legit reason to boo someone aside from the fact that Kofi wanted to try on a different suit, for his fans nonetheless.

    How many Heels are there now? Like who’s actually a legitimate bigtime face? There is John Cena, Sheamus, Miz and Alberto Del Rio (Orton doesn’t count as he’s going heel eventually). Who else is there? There are so many big heels: Ziggler, Punk, Barrett, Cesaro, Ryback, Big Show, Mark Henry, The Shield.
    Part timers don’t count, if anything they need more Faces.

      Daniel Bryan and Kane are faces,and Jericho when he returns again very soon,

  • #heel420

    He’d probably be a great heel. I’m sure he’s been learning everything he can from Punk when they’re on the road.

  • raven

    he would make a good heel just because his character is so stale and buried
    any kind of change is good for kofi.
    the guy will retire with 45 us/intercont titles and 1main event fued that lasted one week with orton.

  • mp

    I have mentioned this before, but here is my idea for heel Kofi. Make him a con artist. He has already been caught trying to pretend being jamaican. Have him swindle people left and right, maybe have him con a diva to be a valet. Call his finisher “The Nigerian Email Scam”
