So just attack the champion, get a title shot
KO returns after months from injury. Befriends Kofi. Attacks him. Gets title shot.
Ziggler returns from injury. Attacks Kofi. Gets title shot.
Samoa Joe loses US title. Attacks Kofi. Gets title shot.
Does WWE (Vince) not know how #1 contenders work? It seems all you have to do is beat up the champion.
If I'm Heath Slater, EC3, Drake Maverick etc., forget R-Truth, I'm attacking Kofi or Rollins and getting a title shot...
