WWE has also chosen three Superstars for a big push and one of them is heavily backed by Vince McMahon.
We also have updates about the changes in the RAW announce team, more Superstars moving to NXT and a former Champion's astonishing request to Vince McMahon.
Sounds like a newsworthy lineup, doesn't it? On that note, let's take a look at the biggest rumors of the day in detail:
#9 Daniel Bryan's begged to Vince McMahon about losing WWE title to Kofi Kingston
Kofimania was inarguably one of the most well-executed feel-good storylines that have been executed in recent years.
Kofi Kingston's monumental WWE Championship win at WrestleMania 35 will be remembered for years to come, however, a lot of effort went into making that happen behind the scenes.
Colohue revealed that Daniel Bryan was regularly seen going in and out of Vince McMahon's office and the Leader of the Yes Movement had to beg the WWE boss to allow him to lose the WWE title to Kingston.
Tom said the following:
“KofiMania was definitely a very strong one [Storyline of the Year contender]. You talk about the poetic justice that was taking the title from Daniel Bryan. From day one, the beginnings of that storyline, the gauntlet match, Daniel Bryan was in and out of Vince McMahon’s office begging to lose the title to Kofi at WrestleMania. He was so far behind his fellow [Superstar], really wanted to see that happen.” H/t Credit: Danny Hart of Sportskeeda
