5 reasons why Kofi Kingston should win the WWE Championship at Elimination Chamber
It was supposed to be Mustafa Ali’s biggest break in the WWE. The newcomer was scheduled to take part in the Elimination Chamber match alongside AJ Styles, Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, Samoa Joe and WWE champion Daniel Bryan for the title.
However, an injury has forced him to quit the event and Kofi Kingston was chosen in his stead. The New Day faction member participated in a Gauntlet match to determine the order of entry at the Elimination Chamber match and put in perhaps his greatest ever performance for WWE.
He began his fight beating Daniel Bryan with a Trouble in Paradise and then eliminated Jeff Hardy with an SOS. After that, he also beat Samoa Joe, who couldn’t take his defeat kindly and launched a brutal attack on Kingston after losing to him.
Nevertheless, Kingston held his own against AJ Styles but couldn’t overcome the Phenomenal One, who locked in a Calf Crusher to make Kingston submit. The New Day superstar fought for over an hour and showed why he deserves a title shot.
But that’s just not it – he should win the title and here are 5 reasons why…
#5 A phenomenal athlete
Earlier, I had written on why Samoa Joe should win the title but at the time, Kingston wasn’t a part of the Elimination Chamber. With him on board, everything changes. The superstar is among the best athletes and he showed just that in the Gauntlet match.
He was so, so good that everyone in the arena was awestruck with his performance. When he was beaten by AJ Styles, the spectators in the arena gave him a standing ovation, such was the quality he oozed
Kingston has always been an amazing in-ring performer. He always makes his opponents look good and does the most dangerous manoeuvres with the utmost ease.
