WWE is coming off the heels of Elimination Chamber. While it seems everyone is focused on the newest crop of NXT call-ups and their main event possibilities, it is impossible to forget how much Kofi Kingston impressed everyone with his recent performances.
Triple H made a special point to gauge the audience’s reaction to Kofi Kingston after dropping his name during his introduction on RAW before announcing the newest NXT call-ups. The Louisiana crowd was mild at best, but hearing Kofi’s name was certainly something they liked.
Dave Meltzer reports on F4WOnline that Kofi Kingston is now the front-runner to receive a WWE Title opportunity at Fastlane. It is said that as of Monday morning WWE’s plan for Fastlane did not involve Kofi Kingston, but those plans have changed.
It is still unknown whether this alteration to Fastlane will go on to influence WrestleMania plans. WWE already has ideas for several returning Superstars who could be opponents for Daniel Bryan at the show of shows.
