Kofi Kingston had to overcome insurmountable odds as he had to compete in a gauntlet match on this week’s Smackdown Live. If he won, he’d earn the right to challenge Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship at Wrestlemania.
He had to face Sheamus, Cesaro, Rowan, Samoa Joe, and Randy Orton in that order. Orton proved to be the most difficult challenge for him. However, towards the end of the match, Kingston countered an RKO and managed to win the match. He finally got the chance to go to Wrestlemania.
However, while Kofi was celebrating his hard-fought victory, Vince McMahon came out and announced that Kingston had to beat another opponent to go to Wrestlemania. He had to beat Daniel Bryan.
Daniel Bryan hit Kofi with a running knee in a very short match and pinned Kingston. So now Kofi Kingston is no longer going to Wrestlemania from the looks of it.
