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

At Wrestlemania we saw the unthinkable, but in a good way because Daniel Bryan came up short finally losing his WWE Championship. Daniel shocked the wrestling world in November when he defeated AJ Styles just before Survivor Series. I have said this before and will again nobody expected Bryan to return to the ring again let alone become the WWE Champion. Not only that Daniel would become the top heel on Smackdown which again shocked everyone. Now talking about the last few months where we have seen the organic rise of Kofi Kingston up the card starting with the extreme gauntlet performance.
This feud has put into perspective not only how long Kofi has been under contract with the WWE for the last ten years. We have seen just how much he has gone through during his career working very hard to reach this point. I for one am kind of at a loss for words when it comes to this topic, because I never really expected to see Kofi Kingston as WWE Champion. This isn't a knock of Kingston, but more a knock on the company never really capitalizing on unlikely talent who have momentum. It will be very interesting to see where Daniel & Kingston goes from here especially considering the upcoming changes with the companies creative team. Much deserved either way for Kofi and am I happy it was able to happen at the biggest event of the year, also this was one of the most emotional promos I have seen on a WWE program in years.
