The odds were stacked against Kofi Kingston again on this week’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live.
On this week’s episode, Vince McMahon announced that Kingston would get a shot at Daniel Bryan’s WWE Championship but it would only happen if Big E and Xavier Woods were able to win a gauntlet match.
Big E and Woods defeated the following teams:
– Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev
– The Bar
– The Usos (via forfeit)
– Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan
The final team was Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan because of the forfeit by The Usos. Rowan was counted out after Big E buried him after the announcers table. The show ended with the babyfaces surrounding the ring as Kofi, Big E and Woods celebrated. In a backstage segment, Vince McMahon said Kingston would be going to WrestleMania but the question is whether a B+ player could win the WWE Championship.
