Current WWE Champion Kofi Kingston is set to defend his title against Dolph Ziggler at next week's Super ShowDown in Saudi Arabia, and presumably, unless Brock Lesnar successfully cashes in his Money in the Bank contract either after or during the match, Kingston will leave the show with his belt.
WWE's next pay-per-view will take place a little over two weeks after Super ShowDown, so the company doesn't have a ton of time to properly build to a brand new title match. However, it's unlikely that they'll go with Kingston vs. Ziggler again, especially if Kingston retains his title with a clean win.
So who on the SmackDown roster could be next in line for Kofi Kingston's WWE Championship after next week's Super ShowDown? Well, as of right now, there isn't really an obvious next contender, but one would assume that Vince McMahon has already picked out who will get the next title shot.
So here a few of SmackDown's finest who could get the next crack at Kofi Kingston.
Even though Roman Reigns is being featured in a pretty big spot currently, as he's feuding with Shane McMahon, but it's probably pretty safe to say that the former Universal Champion probably should be put into the title picture as soon as possible.
Sure, it's probably not something that the fans are dying to see, but the reality is that he never lost the Universal Championship, so it only makes sense for him to go after his current brand's top prize, which is the WWE Championship.
Putting Roman Reigns against Kofi Kingston would probably result in the ex-Shield member getting booed, but that's nothing new. He's still probably their most significant star, which means that he should almost always be in the title picture, regardless of which brand he's on.
