A seed was planted on Monday after Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston lost to RybAxel in a tag team match. All of a sudden fans saw Xavier Woods, Big E Langston and Kofi Kingston all stood in the ring together. Xavier Woods stated you don’t get anywhere by doing good things and it’s their time they will take what they want within the WWE. It looks like this is the beginning of a new faction and I believe it’s a perfect scenario with all the members that are currently involved.
Ever since Xavier Woods debut in the WWE he has failed to live up to expectations. Wood’s first big feud was teaming up with R-Truth and they took on Tons of Funk at the time in many tag team and singles matches. R-Truth and Woods were the reason why Tons of Funk broke up as a tag team because all they did was lose matches.
To make matters worse Woods even took the Funkadactyls away from Brodus Clay and in addition he also took his theme song. From that point on Xavier Woods career has meant absolutely nothing, because he has tried to make his career relevant on RAW, SmackDown, NXT and Main Event. Nothing has work however he is a very educated individual he got his masters in psychology and he is working on his PhD. Woods is a very well spoken individual therefore it would make logical sense to make him the mic piece for this faction.
Big E Langston
I am mostly disappointed with Big E Langston because of his rise to fame and his excellent development in NXT to his current state. Langston was build up as a beast in NXT with his five count gimmick after his matches he would pin his opponents for a count of five. Langston made quite a name for himself when he defeated Seth Rollins and became the NXT Champion. Langston eventually lost his NXT title to the longest reigning NXT champion in history, Bo Dallas before he made his debut on the main roster.
He made his debut on RAW in 2012 he brutally attacked John Cena that established himself as a heel. Langston aligned himself with Dolph Ziggler and AJ Lee as their personal bodyguard. However this partnership with Ziggler and Langston was unsuccessfully, when they lost to team Hell No in Tag Team titles match at WrestleMania 29.
This storyline had so much potential but it ended horribly with Ziggler who get a concussion from Alberto Del Rio, because of that Ziggler was out for a couple months. There was a terrible storyline that dealt with Big E Langston as Kaitlyn secret admire at that time this would lead to a mix tag team match with Ziggler and AJ against Big E Langston and Kaitlyn at Summer Slam. Moving forward Langston has only held the intercontinental champion in his young career when he defeated Curtis Axel. I thought that Big E Langston with the IC title would elevate his career but it did absolutely nothing for him. At the same time there was no competition for him so that could have contributed for being a boring champion. His current gimmick as a preacher is beyond stupid and makes Langston look irrelevant.
Kofi Kingston has been underutilized in the WWE ever since his debut in 2006. One aspect that I still don’t understand Kofi Kingston has always has been billed from Ghana, and he still has Jamaican attire Jamaican fireworks colours and his music WWE should have changed this years ago. On the other hand if you look at it Kofi Kingston has been successfully within his career he won multiple intercontinental, US and Tag Team Championships with limited TV time.
It’s just really frustrating because Kingston has never been able to make the leap from a middle card to a main event wrestler. It is very unfortunate that fans only remember Kingston as a jobber now with his traditional incredible spots in his matches. The only feud that I remember of his career was his feud with Randy Orton which was phenomenal at that time. Due to the fact for the first time fans saw a darker side of Kingston which fans have not seen that before or ever again. I have been calling for a Kofi heel turn for years because as a face he was very forgettable. This new angle as a faction with Xavier Woods and Big E Langston could save Kofi Kingston career.
An honourable mention and an idea I have would be to make Mark Henry join this faction and provide them with a mentor and a leader. Henry would bring them a lot of experience over the years because he was involved in the Nation Of Domination back in the 90’s which was revolutionary at the time. I would also recommend including R-Truth in the faction because right now he is doing nothing with character. Once R-Truth turned heel and dropped that stupid little jimmy gimmick he was very talented on the mic with his promos.
