• Huge News Regarding Kofi Kingston’s Major Push (Spoiler)
As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live, Vince McMahon announced that Kevin Owens will replace Kofi Kingston in the WWE Championship match at FastLane 2019.
According to The Dirty Sheets, WWE made this change to save the WWE Championship match between Daniel Bryan & Kofi Kingston for WrestleMania 35 as the plan right now is for Kingston to defeat Bryan for the Title on the ‘Grandest Stage of Them All’.
As we noted before, The Dirty Sheets previously reported that Vince McMahon is seriously considering putting the WWE Championship on Kofi Kingston after WWE’s marketing department pitched an idea about how WWE could recycle numerous New Day merchandise items solely for Kofi Kingston and this could turn Kofi into a big time merchandise seller if WWE puts the Title on him.
With that being said, WWE is set to release “KofiMania” shirts soon to officially kick off Kofi’s major WrestleMania push.
