    What do you thing of this new pairing?

    They have competed in 4 live matches in the last 3 nights. 2 of witch were tag matches.

    They have beat the WWE Tag Team Champions.
    They have lost to Ziggler and Swagger.

    Do you think they are going to WM28 to face Primo and Epico?

    I think they are a good pairing. Kofi continues to jump divisions, which is not a bad thing IMO. They do work well together.

    Are they the next champions? I think they should get a match against Primo and Epico this week on Raw. Win the title, face them in a rematch the next week, and win again. This could set up for Ziggler and Swagger w/Vickie vs. WWE TT Champions Kofi and R-Truth. That gets 4 of the top midcard guys a spot at WM.
    What do you think of that idea?

    Na, they lost their steam tonight by losing to Swaggler. This will go one of three ways. Truth/Kingston vs Epico/Primo, Swaggler vs Epico/Primo, or a triple threat tag team elimination match. Either way, one of these 2 teams will go to WM.

    I like this pairing for the sole reason that R-Truth's mic work and comedic talents rub off on Kofi. Kofi has quickly become the second coming of Shelton Benjamin, and desperately needs to prove that he isn't a new Shelton.

    i would like to see kofi/truth form a tag team and stay a tag team. they are both decent legit singles midcard guys with nothing else really to do. at least their pairing works. get a couple more decent tag teams and maybe we can have a tag team division worth watching in wwe.

    Never been a fan a Kofi. Recently been a fan of Truth. The reason I DO LIKE this pair is because i don't hate Kofi as much anymore. I enjoy watching Truth, and Kofi gets that rub. If they can do stuff like Miz & Truth (yes I know Kofi is no Miz) i can really start digging them a lot. Just never got into Air Boom and hope they never team up again; I like this team way more.

    I don't like it. Kofi and Bourne were such a natural pairing and had such better chemistry and I understand why that team needs to be broken up but you gotta at least make a pairing just as good as Air Boom and not just throw together two Mid Card guys with out a current feud.

    I don't want to see this pairing again. The tag division is weak but does have a few decent teams. I want the tag teams who are already established to get some actual TV time. Plus, I'm tired of this treatment of Kofi. It's like they have no idea what to do with him.

    Nah, I don't like it. Kofi needs to get in a legit singles feud against a solid opponent. Putting Kofi and Truth in a tag team together with this weak division would only hinder them.

    I wouldn't like them as a team anyway. I like both of them and think their tag team would be amazing but I can really see Kofi becoming a main eventer by the end of the year and R-Truth is great for an upper midcard jobber (to bring the likes of Rhodes etc over) and can even fill into the main event for awhile.

    Plus this is just another stint WWE do every 3 months which is the most stupid thing. They bring down two upper mid cards or main eventers to hold onto the belts and help crediblize the belts then when they lose them they aren't to be heard or seen of again. Please stay or don't come at all.

    I'm guessing this is a short term deal. They complement each other well. Kofi has ring charisma, he has in ring talent, he has a look, he's an athlete, he's fairly over, if he just adds some character quirks to round out his character and better mic skills, he'll be awesome.

    The reason I say it's short term is because both are too valuable as singles. Truth is very over and could become a champ in 2012. I'm guessing they pair the two through Mania and then take the training wheels off Kofi for the summer.

    I hope they stay a tag team. I'd love to see a tag team title ladder match at WM. Usos, KingsTruth, Primo&Epico and maybe one other team. I think it would be super exciting. Maybe it can conjure up some memories of the old tag team TLC matches that involved the Hardys and Dudleys.

    I wanna see a tag team ladder match at WM, Primo/Epico (c) vs R-Truth/Kingstom vs Swagger/Ziggler vs The Usos

    Has the potential to be a great match a relaunch the tag team division.

    This team has potential, but we would need to see them in promos to see how well they can get themselves over. Someone on WZ mentioned a week ago that Kofi would be great as a 'straight man' to Truth's insanity - like a modern day Laurel and Hardy.

    I think their team has major potential. But the only question is if they have chemistry in promos and angles.

    I hate this pairing, it makes absolutely no sense. I hope the WWE nixes this ASAP.

    The pairing of Kingston and Bourne was at least believable. The two had similar ring styles and fan appeal. They were flashy in the ring and fans viewed them in a similar light.

    But R-Truth and Kofi Kingston? What the hell? What similarities do these two share at all? Absolutely none. The in ring chemistry or even character chemistry, for that matter, would be zero. This is just another random, last minute pairing of guys to make a tag team. If WWE is still trying to revitalize the tag division, this isn't the way to do it.

    they feed off each other pretty well, don't expect it to last long though. I'd say the WWE needs them both for Money In the Bank. I think it will be the face version of what they did with Barrett/Rhodes last month before the Elimination Chamber.

    It's an extremely random pairing, but I think it could work. A TruthKofi/SwaggerZiggler/PrimoEpico triple threat tag match would be an excellent WM match. And honestly, I think Truth and Kofi can win the titles and Kofi can pick up where Air Boom left off.

    I dislike the pairing of Kofi and Truth so far. I don't get why they would get teamed up. I understand that Kofi could use a new partner after the unfortunate disbanding of Air Boom, but why R-Truth? The pairing would have made more sense back when Truth was the WHAT'S UP rapper, at least in those days they would have had something in common, getting the crowd excited. This, however, is just yet another random pairing that does very little for either guy. It's proof of how badly the tag team division is doing.

    I hope this does not lead to a tag team title push. Truth is better off ranting about Little Jimmy and spiders in his promos that don't make sense, while Kofi should either look for someone to replace Bourne in his team or take on a more serious persona so he can pursue a singles run. As much as I dislike the Epico & Primo team, this is not the two to dethrone them. Then again, anyone would be better than The Usos or Hunico's team. I doubt this pairing will last very long since both guys are better off without it. I see no title reign or Wrestlemania match in the future, so there's not much of a point in having this team. I could be wrong, but that's what it looks like at the moment.

    I think WWE are still undecided on whether there's gonna be a MITB match at WM so are coming up with other possible scenarios. If a Truth/Kofi vs. Epico/Primo and/or Swaggler match happens, then where does this leave The Miz in all of this? He'll be the only big superstar on RAW without a feud (assuming Del Rio is part of Team Johnny in a match vs. Team Teddy)
