WWE has released a backstage video of Kofi Kingston’s WrestleMania 35 photoshoot. The New Day member is now officially on his way to The Grandest Stage of Them All, where he will challenge Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship.
Kingston’s path to Mania finally became open on the March 26 edition of SmackDown Live, when Big E and Xavier Woods won the tag team gauntlet match.
The gauntlet was set up earlier in the night by Vince McMahon, who made Kofi run a similar gauntlet just one week before. Woods and Big E beat The Bar, Gallows and Anderson, and the team of Rusev and Shinsuke Nakamura. The Usos were actually on the list as well, but the brothers respectfully bowed out, forfeiting the match to The New Day.
The final team on the gauntlet was Daniel Bryan and Erick Rowan, who also fell to The New Day. Now Kofi is on his way to WrestleMania 35 and his supporters, who went on this journey with him, could not be happier.
