• Vince McMahon Seriously Considering Kofi Kingston As WWE Champion, Important Reason Behind This Move

According to The Dirty Sheets, Kofi Kingston is getting the exact same push that was scheduled for Mustafa Ali.

Ali was originally set to go over an hour in the Gauntlet match and be the final man eliminated in the Elimination Chamber match. It was also supposed to be Daniel Bryan vs. Mustafa Ali for the WWE Championship at FastLane 2019.

While WWE officials are going exactly according to their original plan, there have been some discussions of doing Bryan vs. Kingston at WrestleMania 35 (despite the match already happening at FastLane 2019) because the crowd reaction for Kofi has far exceeded their expectations.

Dirty Sheets also noted that Vince McMahon is now 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.

We’ll keep you updated regarding this situation.
