Kingston is a four time IC Champ, three time US Champ, and a three time Tag Team Champion. But I agree, he is being wasted right now. In fact, if WWE would have pushed Kingston as a main event player back about three years ago during his feud with Randy Orton, I think we could be looking at a top five guy in the entire WWE. But, alas, they wasted that opportunity to protect Randy Orton from losing the feud.
At least WWE seems to be looking a little bit towards the future with the push of The Shield...
Kingston at this point has become IC/US Championship fodder. Not a bad place to be, but certainly a waste of his in ring talent...
