Everyone is aware of the rise of KofiMania. It was easily the best storyline of 2019 -- filled with emotions and drama. One by one Kofi Kingston was overcoming obstacles Vince McMahon’s put in front of him. Finally, the Chairman of WWE gave in and allowed Kingston to challenge Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35. 

Fans wanted him to win this match and become the new champion for the first time in his career. Last year, in December, Tom Colohue of Sportskeeda stated that Daniel Bryan played a key role in Kingston winning the WWE Championship.

He 'literally begged' Vince to have him lose the title to The New Day Superstar at the Grandest Stage of Them All, and the latter agreed. KofiMania was the greatest thing to happen in a build-up to WrestleMania. The fans will not forget this storyline for years to come.
