Poor Kofi. One week he’s the number one contender for the WWE Championship, and the next he’s being pulled from that match by Vince McMahon because he’s a big meanie.
However, as some of you may have realised, this storyline is eerily similar to that of Becky Lynch being pulled from her match at WrestleMania, and as it’s pretty much definite that Becky will find her way into that ‘Mania match, it’s likely Kofi will do the same.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer suggested that there had been a change of plans, with Kevin Owens, who was presumed to be Daniel Bryan’s WrestleMania opponent, now facing him at Fastlane. This would presumably open the door for Kingston vs Bryan at WrestleMania, particularly as it would now be pretty odd to put Kofi back into the Fastlane match with just a week to go.
The fact that Kofi looks to now be heading to WrestleMania will make many, including myself, believe that the plan is for him to win the belt, dethroning the evil eco-friendly monster Daniel Bryan and proving that climate change is a myth! (It’s not a myth.)
So, thinking logically, Kevin Owens will have to lose to Daniel Bryan, or at least get screwed over into a loss at Fastlane, which will either mean he’s in for a shot at the belt after ‘Mania, or he, like Becky, will be inserted into a WrestleMania match to make it a triple-threat.
