Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston (WWE Championship)



Quote:
For the love of their New Day cohort Kofi Kingston, Big E & Xavier Woods reigned supreme in a Tag Team Gauntlet Match, conquering the likes of Gallows & Anderson, Rusev & Shinsuke Nakamura, The Bar, The Usos and eventually “The New” Daniel Bryan & Rowan to finally earn The Dreadlocked Dynamo his much-deserved WWE Championship Match against Bryan at WrestleMania.

Kingston began his WrestleMania quest when he competed in a Gauntlet Match prior to WWE Elimination Chamber, lasting an hour and racking up three eliminations in a performance that had the WWE Universe clamoring for Kofi to be given a chance on a bigger stage. Kingston put on another stellar performance inside the Chamber, making it to the final two and nearly dethroning Bryan before narrowly coming up short.

Although Kingston was initially given a one-on-one WWE Championship opportunity at WWE Fastlane, the rug was suddenly pulled out from under him when Mr. McMahon replaced him with a returning Kevin Owens. Also at WWE Fastlane, The Chairman baited Kofi into the ring for a Handicap Match against The Bar, resulting in a 2-on-1 demolition.

In the wake of what The New Day and the WWE Universe considered an outrage, Kingston, Big E and Woods confronted Mr. McMahon on SmackDown LIVE and implored him to give Kingston a legit chance. From there, the Gauntlet was thrown down, and Kingston conquered it in heroic fashion by overcoming United States Champion Samoa Joe, The Bar, Randy Orton and Rowan. Moments after the determined competitor turned in the awe-inspiring performance, however, Mr. McMahon once again turned the tables on him, adding Bryan to the contest and assuring that the war-torn competitor would finally taste defeat.

The fed-up New Day considered quitting WWE if the situation was not rectified, but before they could walk out, Mr. McMahon responded by putting Kingston’s fate in the hands of Big E and Woods, placing the duo in a Tag Team Gantlet Match to determine if Kingston would go to The Showcase of the Immortals, and The Power of Positivity conquered that task in heroic fashion.

Kingston will now go to war with the outspoken Bryan, who has spent months looking down his nose at the WWE Universe and berating them for their lifestyles, in a matchup that could very well steal the show on The Grandest Stage of Them All. Bryan, who turned back five challengers to retain his title inside the Elimination Chamber and overcame Kevin Owens and Ali in an edge-of-your-seat Triple Threat Match at WWE Fastlane, recently scoffed at the notion of defending the WWE Championship against Kingston, whom The Planet’s Champion has repeatedly referred to as a “B-plus player.”

After 11 years of blood, sweat and tears, can Kingston realize his dream by capturing the WWE Championship at The Showcase of the Immortals? Find out at WrestleMania, Sunday, April 7, streaming live at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network!

Re: Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston (WWE Championship)

At this point, this is the only match worth watching at WrestleMania, but I ain't sitting through seven hours for it. I'll catch it later though.

Don't give a shit about anything else. What a terrible indictment of this year's card.

Thought they'd they never make this match official.

Anyway, this should be fun. New Day will probably screw Kofi though.

I remember watching Kofi in a dark match before a SmackDown at the TD Garden in December 2007 before he debuted on ECW, gonna be surreal to see him finally get the most important belt in WWE after 13 years.

eh ill probably watch the entire thing, but mainly watching for Kofi-Bryan,Batista-HHH,and Rollins-Lesnar (probably gonna end up getting my hopes up that they will finally take the period belt off that part-time fuck only for me to be enraged and shut the stream off when Lesnar inevitably retains)

Obviously rooting for the Planet's Champion, but I wouldn't mind Kofi winning. New Day still rocks.

Re: Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston (WWE Championship)

I'm hoping Kofi wins but don't think he will. I hope so because I like cheesy feel good moments and I like Kofi more than I like Daniel Bryan.

Re: Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston (WWE Championship)

They way they are booking this would be no surprise if Kofi loses this match, KOFIMania practically saved Smackdown's show for the last month and a half - they clearly had nothing big planned for Bryan at WM 35 if his contender were the like of Owens or Ali - but Bryan crushing the cinderella story would be a very WWE-like move.

BUT we also has to consider the KSA show on 2 May, Bryan will not be there and Kofi defending the title is a good business move.

Is amusing how WWE has recycled (this probably makes Bryan happy) the YES Movement storyline, and now Daniel Bryan character is the one who preaches about B+ players and merits to obtain a world title match.

In guess in wrestling business everything is possible.

Re: Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston (WWE Championship)

Been supporting Kofi since he first came on my tv in 2008 and thought he was gonna be great in 2009, and then "stupid stupid" happened. I love kofi, but there is no way in hell I'm watching 8 hours of wm... 98% of this company has become unwatchable. With everything that has been going on since the rumble he'll probably still lose.

Only match I actually care about. Mainly cause I'm such a huge Kofi fan and New Day mark.

AJ and Orton slightly.

Really hope to see Kofi actually winning at Mania. Awesome to cheers someone for so many years, and see him get pushed like that.

Plus a serious New Day Storyline. Awesome.

Also the fact Daniel Bryan is an opponent and Kofi is in a similar position makes it even better.

Good stuff.

Re: Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston (WWE Championship)

The story is good.

I wonder if it's the STORY and the novel gauntlet-type matches with huge stakes that are carrying SDL the past month, rather than Kofi? That is, could it be that people are watching because it's something other than whatever Raw has been putting on-singles matches with no stakes on, same old IC title matches, or Baron Corbin vs Apollo?

I just wish it was Big E or Lashley or someone in that spot instead of Kofi. And I'd probably have said the same if it was Rey Mysterio in that spot. Can't take this skinny ass smiling buffoon with a few acrobatic moves seriously as a contender for the WWE championship on the biggest stage of them all. Guy is barely any better than Koko B Ware. A C+ player rather than B+.
