Kofi Kingston was an overlooked singles performer until the WWE Creative team chose him to take the injured Mustafa Ali's place in the 6-man Elimination Chamber match last February. To give Kofi Kingston momentum, the writers did a stupendous job and put him in a gauntlet match featuring all the competitors of the Chamber match.
When Daniel Bryan came out first to fight with Kofi, it seemed like Kingston would take the champion to the limits but will take the pin ultimately. However, Kofi not only took Bryan to his limits but also pinned him to progress in the match. He then eliminated Jeff Hardy and Samoa Joe to cement his place as a babyface in the hearts of the WWE Universe.
The WWE Universe was madly behind Kofi Kingston at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. Though Kofi could not win the WWE Championship, his performance earned him a title match at WWE Fastlane.
Vince McMahon, being the heel he is, screwed Kofi and the WWE Universe by replacing him with a returning Kevin Owens in the match. Since that night, there have been multiple occasions where Vince has screwed Kofi Kingston on SmackDown Live.
This Tuesday he will face the top 5 heels of SmackDown in a gauntlet match just to 'go to' WrestleMania.
A lot of fans believe that the Creative team is building up Kofi Kingston as an underdog and, he will win the WWE Championship at the Grandest Stage of Them All. This looks like a straightforward storyline which has the highest chances of coming to fruition but in this article, we will have a look at the things that may transpire if Kofi Kingston does not win the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35.
#CancelWWENetwork trends on social media
There are two ways through which the WWE Universe can express their displeasure towards the company's booking decisions. First, the fans in attendance hijack the event with deafening boos and second, the fans at home get the #CancelWWENetwork trending on social media.
Even the ones who have never subscribed WWE Network in their life start sharing the #CancelWWENetwork to follow the trend. And boy, if Kofi does not win the title after making it to the championship match, mark my words, the aforementioned two things will happen on April 7th, 2019.
