Kofi Kingston May Accomplish Unprecedented Feat on SmackDown

Kofi Kingston could make history at WrestleMania when he challenges for the WWE Championship for the first time in his career. However, he is up against monumental odds this Tuesday night on SmackDown Live as he will need to go through a gauntlet to get his WrestleMania title shot. (H/T WrestlingNews)

For those of you that missed it, Vince McMahon said on Tuesday that Kingston would need to beat Erick Rowan, Sheamus, Cesaro, United States Champion Samoa Joe and Randy Orton on SmackDown Live. If he can do that then he will lay claim to being the number 1 contender for Daniel Bryan’s WWE Championship.

WWE deserves credit for moving forward with Kingston as a top contender as the fans wanted because he was not originally planned for the feud with Bryan and, as of a few weeks ago, the idea was for Bryan to face a returning Superstar (Kevin Owens was the heavily rumored opponent).

According to @WWEStats on Twitter, no WWE Superstar has ever won a gauntlet match where they were responsible for beating everyone else in the gauntlet. In other words, Kingston will have to beat every single person put in front of him this Tuesday night. If that happens, then you can expect one of the biggest pops ever in SmackDown Live history and that will set up Kingston for his highest profile WWE match at WrestleMania.
