Last week, after messing with Kofi Kingston's WWE Title shot at Fastlane, Vince McMahon announced that if Kingston survives five other Superstars in a gauntlet match, he will be going to WrestleMania. Beating five Superstars such as Randy Orton, Samoa Joe, Cesaro, Sheamus and Rowan will be no easy task. However, Vince McMahon was very clear that Kingston will be heading to WrestleMania but did not say anything about a Title shot at the Grandest Stage of Them All.
Considering this is something on the lines of what The Chairman pulled off when he explained his actions at Fastlane, here are five different scenarios that could play out once Kingston runs the gauntlet.
This has to be the most obvious choice for Mr. McMahon to prove to be the biggest heel in the company. Once Kofi finishes off his five competitors, McMahon can come out and tell Kofi that he is going to WrestleMania and hand him a ticket to the first row instead of what everyone believes to be a match for the WWE Title.
The show may close with loud boos and the make Kofimania run rampant. Kingston may be propelled as the biggest babyface in the company since Daniel Bryan and his Yes Movement.
What can be worse than leaving all you've got in the ring to only be handed one more obstacle in your way? Mr. McMahon may come out to a tired Kofi and say that yes he is going to Mania but he will have to face another opponent on the night. He will be granted his title match only if he beats that opponent on that night.
This is very similar to what Daniel Bryan had to do on his road to his WWE World Heavyweight Title match at WrestleMania XXX. This can be a great way to get the crowd excited for all of Kofi's matches at Mania and to capitalize on the inevitable pop and feel good moment when Kingston finally becomes a Grand Slam champion.
