Last night on SmackDown it was announced that Kofi Kingston of The New Day would replace the injured Mustafa Ali in the WWE Championship match this Sunday at Elimination Chamber. Kingston was revealed at the beginning of the gauntlet match main event to decide who would enter the chamber last at the PPV. and lasted over an hour, instantly raising his profile and giving him a whole lot of momentum going into the title match. The gauntlet was won by Randy Orton with an RKO out of nowhere which was dumb but overall it was a great match. Seriously if you didn’t catch last night’s SmackDown I highly suggest you do. Of course I recapped it but it’s a match worth actually seeing with your own eyeballs. It’s easy to forget just HOW GOOD Kofi is when given the chance, and he reminded me for sure by the end of the episode.
Elimination Chamber takes place this Sunday and will air live on the WWE Network at 7pm/6pm Central. If you’re a glutton for punishment the Kickoff Show starts at 6pm/5pm Central.
