4 Things that could happen if Brock Lesnar cashes in on Kofi Kingston
Brock Lesnar shocked the world when he won the Money in the Bank Ladder match at the titular PPV two weeks ago. Lesnar made a surprise return at the event entering himself as Raw's unannounced 4th entrant in the bout, taking Sami Zayn's place after the latter got taken out earlier that night.
The Beast Incarnate retrieved the contract after taking out Ali, who was just inches away from winning the match. Lesnar capitalized on the opportunity while all the other original contestants took each other out, winning the MITB contract for the first time in his career.
Lesnar was supposed to reveal on whom he would cash in the contract on last week’s episode of Raw. But Mr. Beast in the Bank had other plans after finding out he had a whole year to make that decision.
Stephanie McMahon announced the McMahon family would meet up to decide how to "take action" against Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman after their actions last week.
Shortly after WWE released the video Lesnar's advocate Paul Heyman took to Twitter to announce Lesnar would be cashing in the MITB contract on this week's episode of Raw, tagging Stephanie McMahon and Seth Rollins on the tweet.
Tagging Rollins in the tweet could imply Lesar could cash in for the Universal Championship. But what if Lesnar had other ideas and cashed in on Kofi Kingston instead?
#4 Could mean the end of Kofi's title reign
Kofi Kingston made history when he became the first African-born WWE Champion when he defeated Daniel Bryan to win the title at WrestleMania 35 after 11 years with the company.
Since then Kofi has defended the title against the likes of Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, and AJ Styles. He even competed in a title vs. title match against Universal Champion Seth Rollins, which ended in a disqualification.
But Kofi's fairy tale title reign could have an anti-climax at the expense of the Beast Incarnate.
The ratings for SmackDown Live haven't been so good since Kingston won the title at WrestleMania as the show hit the lowest viewers in history on the May 14th episode drawing only 1.82 million views.
So if WWE pulls the trigger with Lesnar cashing in for the WWE Championship, it could mean Kofi Kingston could kiss the title goodbye.
