Sharing my thoughts, opinion, and historical facts on everything WWE both past and present

After another incredible performance by Kofi he got so close, but coming up short in the end. For a puzzling reason they chose to send Daniel Bryan out to fight his possible challenger. I mean I sort of understand giving away the match, because it's almost like Daniel's the if you want something done right you have to do it yourself. It does make sense in that case, but the only question in my opinion now is that considering we are 16 days away from Wrestlemania and Kofi isn't fighting Daniel then who is fighting him.
This is one of my problems with Wrestlemania this year as it feels like there is no sense of urgency to build the card. Now I know it's possible Kofi does fight Daniel, but I feel like at this point they would've been better off just booking the match at this point, because Kofi has the emotional support already and they could just strike while the iron is still hot.
The main problem I feel like is that the way the company booking the build up for the match is they might be painting themselves into a corner. I feel like if they let Kofi get the solid win and then ended this week's Smackdown with a face-off between Daniel, Kofi and Vince instead of the way they did then I think it would avoid the backlash of why book Kofi this way if he doesn't win. The one issue with the organic explosion of popularity for Kofi is that they have no time to really stretch out the build for the match. Let's just wait and see where things go from here.
