5 Superstars WWE should have picked instead of Kofi Kingston
While it's clear that WWE picked him for Ali because they have very similar characteristics and they needn't change the match plan drastically. Both men are capable of going beyond the limits to entertain the fans and take the fight to the opponents.
However, I don't see where this storyline will be heading after the match. There are better storylines WWE could have gone with if they had picked one of these 5 Superstars:
#5 Bray Wyatt
The eater of the worlds is fit and ready to return but is just waiting for the right storyline. Bray Wyatt was out of action for a long time but made his return in a WWE Live Event just before TLC, late in December.
There was a lot of speculation that WWE would bring him in as a replacement for Braun Strowman in the match vs Baron Corbin but that didn't happen. The WWE Universe was expecting to see him at the Royal Rumble, at least, and he was a no-show there as well.
But now, WWE have the right storyline to bring him in but have once again now done it. Wyatt could have come out and accused Daniel Bryan of stealing his Wyatt Family – creating a story that could have had some interesting twists and turns.
The only reason I see WWE not going ahead with this is if they are planning to change his character completely. He did become a WOKEN soldier after the Ultimate Deletion match.
But then again, how much longer are WWE going to keep him out? Just give him a chance, Vince!
