The tweet has made the fans lose their minds over the possibility of Shane McMahon becoming the new WWE Champion. They are lashing out against the company for choosing Shane over the other deserving superstars on the roster.
But WWE could have a long-term plan behind their alleged decision to have Shane dethrone Kofi Kingston. With top heels like Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler on the roster, there should be a strong reason behind WWE going with Shane O’Mac.
With that in mind, let's look at five reasons why the Million Dollar Prince should become the new WWE Champion.
At WrestleMania 35, we witnessed a sight we never thought we would see. Kofi Kingston created history by becoming WWE's first African born WWE Champion.
The build-up towards his historic win is one of the best works the WWE creative team has done in years. Kofi overcame all the odds stacked against him to win his first WWE title after eleven years with the company.
Kingston has defended the title against the likes of AJ Styles, Seth Rollins & Kevin Owens since becoming champion at WrestleMania. He’s been having a strong run so far, but his time at the top might end sooner rather than later.
The theme behind Kofi's title pursuit is an underdog overcoming all odds to achieve his dream. WWE is using the same idea with Kofi's title defenses as an underdog champion doing everything he can to keep his title.
The theme has diminishing returns, and unless the creative team finds new ideas, we could see the sun setting on Kofi’s reign sooner than we thought.
