As announced on Smackdown LIVE last night by Vince McMahon himself, Kofi Kingston will have to beat Randy Orton, Samoa Joe, Sheamus, Cesaro and Rowan in a gauntlet match in order to challenge for the WWE Championship at WrestleMania.
How will Kofi defy all the odds to win the match and prove the chairman that he’s a worthy maineventer? Let us take a look at 5 ways in which Kofi can walk out of the match victorious, to challenge Bryan at WrestleMania:
5. Randy Orton gets distracted by AJ Styles
Orton undoubtedly is the biggest threat to Kofi Kingston in this gauntlet match, but thanks to his on-going rivalry with AJ Styles, he does not need this win at all.
Styles and Orton had a heated debate on the microphone last night, so we all can expect them to get physically involved during next week’s gauntlet match.
They need to make this one a serious feud, so Styles costing Orton during the gauntlet match makes a lot of sense and builds a lot of heat for their WrestleMania match.
