Kofi Kingston is on a roll and KofiMania is running wild. Therefore, as a top babyface, Vince McMahon is going to have a target on him. Mr. McMahon had some fun at Kofi’s expense at WWE Fastlane, but that only ignited the fires for The New Day and Kofi Kingston got tired of waiting. After all, it’s already been 11 years of waiting.

McMahon said that he was giving Kofi Kingston a “teachable moment” at WWE Fastlane when he played with Kofi’s emotions. Then The New Day came out to confront their boss on live television.
After pleading their cases for Kofi Kingston to get a WWE Title shot, Kofi Kingston finally spoke up and cut a great promo. Vince McMahon said he’ll get a WWE Title opportunity… all he has to do is beat Samoa Joe, Rey Mysterio, The Bar, and Rowan in a gauntlet match next week.
So it looks like Kofi Kingston is going to have to impress in another gauntlet match next week on SmackDown Live and emerge victoriously if he wants a WWE Title match at WrestleMania.
