Granted he should've had a World Title reign a lot sooner than he did, but he was a member of one of the greatest Tag Teams in wrestling history I don't think we need to get into that, but just look at who won the IC Title back then and how many of those guys went on to have success as a Main Eventer, guys like Edge, Jericho, Angle, HHH, Stone Cold, even Orton back in 03, theres more than just these guys too (Rock for instance). They all held the title and went on to have success as a Main Eventer.
In this day and age, holding those titles means little to nothing. Kofi has had three less than memorable reigns as tag Champ, four reigns as IC champ, and 3 reigns as US Champ, back when Edge wrestled he would be in the main event by now, but he's not. As others have said he is just a transitional champion for the midcard scene until they find someone better to hold the title.
I'm not here to crap on Kofi, I think hes pretty good, and I would love to see him in the Main Event, but if he hasn't by now I don't see it happening. Comparing Edge and Kofi will only get you so far, but wrestling in different eras, holding those titles means different things, and unfortunately for Kofi it means nothing. Now a days you need to win the Royal Rumble or MiTB Briefcase to become a main eventer, and he has been in so many of those matches yet never won, and nothing tells me that is going to change. Someone mentioned he is a spot monkey, and that is exactly what he is. Thats why I don't see Kofi ever getting out of the midcard, because if he were to be a main eventer it would have happened already.
There are going to be new people coming to take spots, and if they haven't put faith in Kofi to be the top AA star yet, I don't see it happening. I think its either Big E or Xavier Woods.
