#4 Allowed the WWE Champion to retain his championship
Kofi Kingston has been having a dream run on SmackDown since his huge WWE Championship victory over Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35. Kofi won his first-ever WWE Championship at the event and has managed to successfully defend the title ever since.
In the past couple of months, Kofi met his biggest threat yet in the face of 'The Viper' Randy Orton. Not only had Orton attacked Kofi physically, but also wore him down mentally and emotionally.
This seemed to be the perfect time and the perfect opponent. Kingston seemed primed to lose the WWE Championship, but the company decided against letting Orton take the title away from Kofi Kingston.
This was a massive surprise, as Orton is by far the most villainous WWE Superstar on SmackDown. Unless WWE has an even better wrestler hiding somewhere, it was puzzling as to why the company would book Kofi to go over Orton once again.
