Next week’s Smackdown Live looks to be a big one. A gauntlet match will be taking place and it will determine Kofi Kingston’s Wrestlemania match. If he wins the match, he will earn the right to challenge for the WWE Championship.
WWE announced that the gauntlet match will kick off SmackDown Live this week. These matches tend to be long so it’s a good idea to have them at the start. This way WWE can adjust the times for the other segments on the show. This might also mean that Kingston’s Wrestlemania storyline will be given a lot of focus next week.
The Miz will also talk about his upcoming match at Wrestlemania against Shane McMahon. He will surely have a lot to say about his former best friend, who attacked him at WWE Fastlane.
