Christmas Wish List: Kofi Kingston

Kofi Kingston is one of the most underrated superstars on the WWE roster in my opinion.  A couple of years ago I really thought he was going to break through to the main event level, but for whatever reason his feud with Randy Orton somewhat derailed him.

He's had some good runs with the Intercontinental and U.S. titles.  Now he and Evan Bourne are the current tag team champions.  It seemed like putting the titles on Air Boom was not only giving Kofi's career new life, but pumping new blood into the tag team division.  But about a month again Bourne was suspended for a wellness policy violation.  So Kofi has been left to singles competition in the meantime.

My Christmas wish for Kofi is a simple one.  I hope that Evan comes back, healthy and clean and the WWE lets these two continue to thrive as the tag team champs.  Right now the division is back on life support, but with some stability out of Air Boom, I feel like tag team wrestling can be really exciting again in 2012.

Kofi is also one of those few guys for me who I can take as a tag team or singles competitor.  But right now for the good of tag team wrestling, I want Air Boom to succeed and for that to happen, he's got to have a healthy partner.  I hope that's the case as Evan prepares to return and I hope the WWE doesn't plan to "punish" the team for the actions of one member.
