With so many huge names on SmackDown LIVE, not many would have guessed that 'KofiMania' would be the talk of the town as we approach WrestleMania 35.

No WWE fan will deny that a major championship win - or even a main event push for the New Day members - is long overdue.


In what seems to be taken from Daniel Bryan's storyline five years ago, the YES! Movement was an emotional journey the fans loved, and it looks as if the same could be happening this year with Kofi Kingston.

Despite the loopholes he's had to jump through and the hurdles he's had to overcome, the timing suggests that Bryan will defend the WWE Championship against Kingston at WrestleMania 35.

Kofi recently fell at the impromptu final hurdle on SmackDown LIVE earlier this week. He defeated the likes of Randy Orton, Erick Rowan and Samoa Joe in a gauntlet match which also featured The Bar, but Vince McMahon decided to bring out Bryan as the last opponent who picked up the win.

Now that he's cemented himself in the main event position, Kingston has explained why he feels he's finally made it in the WWE.

It actually has very little to do the WWE Championship itself. When he spoke to Planeta Wrestling, Kofi revealed that going toe to toe with Vince on the microphone in several segments is the biggest sign that he's made it in the company.


According to NoDQ, he said: "I guess we’ll find out [about winning the WWE Championship]. It certainly is very exciting to be in this position.

"Like I said last week being able to go toe-to-toe with Vince McMahon on the mic to me that’s a sign that you’ve made it. That you’re on the right path because not many people get to do that.

"So for me, [Xavier] Woods, and [Big] E to be in that ring with Vince, it’s awesome you know.

"I’m not really one to look back at those things we’ve done and I guess enjoy it to the fullest because I still feel like we have a lot more to do and we have a lot more great moments ahead.

It's now a rarity to see Vince on television with him doing most of the work behind the scenes.

When he does appear on camera, he's usually saved for the most important segments alongside the biggest names in the business today.

So, it's easy to see why Kofi understands this is a huge deal in itself.

Next stop, win the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35.
