Kofi Kingston to Face Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35 for the WWE Championship

Kofi Kingston is finally getting his opportunity at Daniel Bryan and the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 35.

The 11-year veteran received his title shot after weeks of full starts from Vince McMahon. The head honcho at WWE constantly changed the program on a week-to-week basis, including putting Kofi's New Day teammates, Xavier Woods and Big E into a tag team Gauntlet match on the March 26 episode of SmackDown Live.

Big E and Xavier Woods took out The Club, Shinsuke Nakamura and Rusev, The Bar, The Usos - who forfeit their spot - and Daniel and Rowan to earn the WrestleMania match for their brother.

This will be Kofi's first one-on-one WWE Championship opportunity in his career.

The road to Kofi's championship opportunity at 'Mania began in the weeks leading to the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view. After replacing the injured Mustafa Ali, Kingston outlasted Daniel Bryan, Samoa Joe, and Jeff Hardy before falling to AJ Styles in a Gauntlet match on an episode of SmackDown Live.

That was the start of Kofi's momentum towards the WWE Championship. He would be one of two competitors remaining in the Elimination Chamber match for the title before ultimately being pinned by Daniel Bryan.

Kington's newfound fire resonated with the WWE Universe in what would be known as "Kofi-mania." Kingston would pin the WWE Champion in a six-man tag match and earn himself a title shot at Fastlane. However, Mr. McMahon would replace Kingston with the returning Kevin Owens.

At the Fastlane pay-per-view, Kofi and the New Day plead with Mr. McMahon to be inserted in the WWE Championship match between Bryan and Kevin Owens but was tricked into a handicap match against The Bar.

New Day would take over SmackDown the following Tuesday to force a confrontation between the trio and Mr. McMahon. Vince would give Kofi his gauntlet match but screw him out of WrestleMania by adding a sixth unannounced entrant into the bout, Daniel Bryan.

WrestleMania 35 is set for Sunday, April 7.
