REAL TITLE: Who's most deserving of a world title shot, on a pay per view, for the World Wrestling Entertainment. You know, the company owned by Vincent Kennedy Mcmahon?
I gotta give this dude his props. He's had singles success, just never won the HW strap. He's a high flyer, and most high flyers don't pull main attractions, unless you're Rey Mysterio. But my pick, he's won the United States title, Intercontinental title, and the world tag team titles for the company.
None other than Kofi Kingston. Wresting websites rave at the moves and skills CM Punk has in the ring, but damn, what about Kofi? lol Dude can kill Punk on the high flying maneuvers. Fans like to see action, not two 300 pound gulupies, that either slam you or hit you, nothing else.
Kingston is a BIG fan favorite because of his array of moves, he's probably the most talented that hasn't won a belt in the company now as we speak.

WOW! is the WWE roster thin!!! It was hard to find another choice that wasn't already a HW Champ in WWE.
I'll go with 'Long Island Iced-Z' Zack Ryder.
WOO WOO WOO! Ya know it!!!
He's been a US Champ and a Tag Team Champ. He's also done what WWE is always saying wrestlers need to do: Create their own opportunity.
After winning the tag title with Curt Hawkins at The Great American Bash in '08, Zack was stuck at the bottom of the card for over a year when the team split in '09. Knowing he had more to offer, he created ???Z! True Long Island Story.??? which debuted on YouTube in February '11. Zack used social media to his advantage long before WWE jumped on the bandwagon and soon signs began cropping up at WWE events and fans became obsessed with spiking their hair and chanting ???Woo Woo Woo!??? Zack was even endorsed by John Cena himself and a push resulted in Zack winning the US title at TLC in '11.
WWE of course then completely dropped the ball and now has him jobbing to EVERONE instead of pushing Zack into the heavyweight title picture and capitalizing on his hard won popularity with fans by having him win the HW title.
Should've known WWE didn't mean what they say!!!

Zach Ryder vs Kofi Kingston...
Man, usually your arguments are pretty solid, this case, NO.
Zach Ryder's appeal has fallen off a cliff. We are long past the Jersey Shore gimmick.
Zach Ryder might be talented for sure, but he's getting beat by the likes of Cody Rhodes these days. haha
Kofi Kingston just needs a chance, too bad, Zach Ryder's chance has already come and gone. I don't think they'd even give him the Intercontinental title at this stage in the game. It would be a HUGE stretch.

Do you know what Zack and Kofi have in common?
Neither of them were on Raw this week!
Both have fallen pretty far lately. And we don't know why! (I do. See below for more)
Both of them would need to be built up again a lot to be taken seriously as HW title contenders. Both are past tag champs and held the under belts (US and Intercontinental), but never got pushed into the HW title picture for more than a cup of coffee.
Zack was one of the hottest wrestlers in the company not that long ago. But because he created his own buzz the WWE quickly found ways to kill his buzz instead of just running with it. The reigning self proclaimed 'Internet Champion' deserved and deserves better. Instead of becoming a serious threat to Cena's title they made Zack Cena's BFF and then created that dumb love triangle with Eve to make Zack look weak.
And all because the WWE knows what the fans want better than we do ourselves. The WWE didn't create the fan buzz for Zack. He did it himself by cleverly using the Internet and social media and got himself insanely over without the WWE's help. But no HW title push for Zack.
In the end it doesn't matter what we want, just Vince.
