WWE.com posted the following this weekend:
Kofi Kingston must win a Gauntlet Match next Tuesday to earn WWE Title Match at WrestleMania
Kofi Kingston asked for an opportunity, and Mr. McMahon gave him one.
In order to earn a WWE Championship Match at WrestleMania, Kingston must defeat Randy Orton. And United States Champion Samoa Joe. And The Bar. And Rowan. Yes, Kingston has to beat all five Superstars in a Gauntlet Match that will start the show this Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE to keep his WrestleMania dreams alive.
The Dreadlocked Dynamo’s WrestleMania quest started when Kingston entered a Gauntlet Match prior to WWE Elimination Chamber, lasting an hour in a performance that had the WWE Universe clamoring for Kofi to be given a chance on a bigger stage. Kingston put on another stellar performance inside the Chamber, making it to the final two and nearly dethroning Daniel Bryan before narrowly coming up short.
Kingston’s WWE Championship opportunity at WWE Fastlane was snatched away by Mr. McMahon, and The Chairman then baited Kofi into the ring for a 2-on-1 demolition at the hands of The Bar. Two days later, a fired-up New Day implored Mr. McMahon to give Kingston a chance. The WWE Chairman did, throwing down the gauntlet.
Can Kingston defeat five of WWE’s toughest Superstars and earn his place on The Grandest Stage of Them All? Find out when this high stakes Gauntlet Match kicks things off this Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!
WWE.com also posted this one regarding The Miz promo segment:
The Miz to respond to Shane McMahon this Tuesday night
The Miz will break his silence on Shane McMahon’s shocking betrayal this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE.
Shane-O-Mac went absolutely ballistic on The Miz following their loss to The Usos at WWE Fastlane, assaulting his former tag team partner in front of both The A-Lister’s father and his hometown faithful in Cleveland. Shane then doubled down two nights later on the blue brand, accusing Miz of being soft, holding him back and being unworthy of the moniker “Best in the World,” before setting up a match between him and The Awesome One at WrestleMania 35.
What will The Miz have to say to Shane? Find out Tuesday night at 8/7 C on USA Network.
