3 reasons why Kofi Kingston should have won the WWE Universal Title on Raw
The Raw episode after WrestleMania is always something to look forward to as it is almost always the beginning of new things. At WrestleMania, 7 titles changed hands, so it is a testament that new things are about to happen.
Monday Night Raw had some great moments. Elias was interrupted by The Undertaker, who was absent during WrestleMania 35. Sami Zayn also returned from injury after a long time.
However, the segment that stole the show was the New Day interrupting Seth Rollins, who began the show to address the WWE Universe following his epic win against Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Universal Title.
Kofi Kingston challenged Rollins to a winner-takes-all title match, which was, however, interrupted by The Bar, resulting in a disqualification - which meant that the titles didn’t change hands
I, for one, would have loved it had the match not been interrupted and Kofi winning against Seth to carry both the titles – and here are three reasons why that should have happened.
#3 KofiMania in full force
WrestleMania 35 might be over but KofiMania is still alive and kicking. The fans are still in awe of the Superstar who won his first ever WWE Title against Daniel Bryan at the Show of Shows.
As Seth Rollins was being cheered during his victory speed on Raw, the fans went crazy when New Day’s music hit. They began chanting ‘Kofi! Kofi!’ as he was making his way to the ring alongside his New Day brothers.
This is a testament to how over he is with the fans right now. Rollins is also a babyface but all the cheers for him disappeared the moment Kingston appeared – which is a telling testament to the fact that the KofiMania could have peaked even more with the Universal Title.
