Last night on Smackdown, Vince made Kofi go through a gauntlet match in which he fought the Bar, Samoa Joe, Randy Orton, and Erick Rowan. He was the last man standing and when Big E and Xavier Woods came out to celebrate with their New Day teammate, Vince announced there was one more person Kofi needed to beat… WWE Champion Daniel Bryan. Of course Kofi loses that and it led to him not qualifying for Wrestlemania.
Now, all hope is not lost. This is what we are getting at Wrestlemania, but what is interesting is they brought back Heel Vince. Now Vince has always been a heel, but he rarely shows it anymore. But since the McMahon family made an effort to be there weekly, Vince has controlled this feud. We saw this happen with Daniel Bryan back when he fought Triple H at Wrestlemania, it is the exact same underdog story. I have no doubt Kofi gets in this match but it probably doesn’t happen until Wrestlemania itself. He’ll have to win a match to be added to the match, I’d say with Kevin Owens and Daniel Bryan. Now to other news.
Ronda Rousey is beating the hell out of everyone. This week she destroyed Dana Brooke and then wouldn’t let go of the armbar. She then attacked security and so did her husband. I get turning Ronda heel because Heel Becky did not work. Ronda is a perfect person to turn heel, just like Brock, but with Ronda she can take it too far. She is an ex MMA fighter and there are concerns she could actually hurt Becky or Charlotte which is why it is a triple threat match at Wrestlemania. This build up just ensures that these women will be headlining Wrestlemania.
Lastly, Randy Orton. Randy Orton and AJ Styles will have the best match at Wrestlemania. Those two in the same ring will be electric. Their promos are absolutely insane, with both mocking the other. You can tell how excited they are for this fight due to the emotion they both bring. This needs to be changed to a falls count anywhere or a cage match. I just wish a match of this magnitude would be for a belt, but nah Vince had to stick a belt on the worst, most annoying person, Samoa Joe.
