    This seemed to have always been the case, but I realize I've listed a very limited range.
    Didn't Kofi Kingston debut as a face?

    Or am I wrong?

    If they ever do turn him heel they have to make him into the Shadowman from Princess & The Frog - and that would be the funkiest, awesomest character ever.

    This...a million times this!

    I think Vince has got a thing for foreign heels, but then they always elicit the USA! USA! reaction from the crowd, so I'm not surprised he keeps doing it. It's like insta-heat, they don't have to put any effort in to the character or to build any heat, they just shove them out there and go "hey, hate this foreign guy!". It may be down to Vince's decisions, but surely it's partly down to the fans too?

    I just hate it when they start with the "USA USA USA" chants, makes me want to turn off my TV.
    I'm a bit of a b*llshitter myself but occasionally enjoy listening to an expert. Please carry on.

    Just as long as he's managed by the wrestling equivalent of the Oogie Boogie man from Nightmare Before Christmas. Right there you have the two greatest black villains in cartoon history.

    My favourite USA chants are the ones that show how retarded the crowd are by chanting it in a match featuring NO American wrestlers.

    My favourite is Lance Storm VS Super Crazy where Storm got on the mic and asked who they were chanting for due to neither wrestler being American.

    Cool as that would be I don't know if there ever be another "Outback Jack" in the WWE. But we've seen stranger things happen.
