Backstage News on a Kofi Heel Turn, Change In WWE Developmental

– There have been discussions about turning Kofi Kingston heel with the idea that he’s talented but has been booked in a way where they will never be able to get him over as a babyface without a heel turn and push first.

– A new change in WWE developmental is to give the talents bullet points instead of scripts and teaching them to do promos like they used to be done.

It’s been noted that Triple H is far more old school in his thoughts on pro wrestling than Vince McMahon and when he’s in full control, we will likely see the storylines evolve back to a more believable and serious approach.

    HHH isn’t going to save wrestling, he’s just going to tweek it so the small change is significantly better than whats being produced, so in retrospect, this is as good as it gets, and for KOFI, Thank God they finally pulled the trigger, a heel turn is what he needs, no boom, just Kick Ass

    yeah your right, didnt think of that…. those were the days!!!…. if WWE gets any close to that, it would be really awesome!!!, i will never forget when Bret pushed Vince on his ass and said Bullshit on TV….

    I’d guess it’ll be close to the Bret Hart era where it was pg but the storylines still came off very realastic.

  • I find that a bit hard to believe, considering the fact that HHH has had full creative control of his OWN shitty storylines for years, pretty much ever since he first got with Stephanie. So we’re expected to believe that HHH being in full control of the product in the FUTURE is going to make it better? When he hand picks guys like Batista and Sheamus and Wade Barret and Ryback to be “the future”?

    Call me skeptical.

    I think Kofi is over as a Baby Face. Turn him heel, then turn Ziggler face.

    Why not team up Kofi with R-Truth as they seem to be in the same boat. I mean, they do it with other talent (Daniel Bryan, etc.). I think that could put them both over really well as faces, and the tag team division continues to suffer.

    Am pretty glad about what TripĀ“s would do. It is weird though, since i just read about wwe wanting to be more “mother and son” sort of promotion….

    About Kofi, it would be good to see him as a heel, but it sure would be interesting to see it…. i do wonder how hes style could change…

  • Scooter

    Not suprised at all Hunters a Kowalski student so he would be brought up to respect the business. Really excited for some of his ideas.

    I hope this is true as it will give a chance for wrestlers to build their charisma themselves as well as their character.
