Take a look at the five biggest questions from RAW, NXT, and SmackDown this week.
#5 Does Kofi Kingston need to prove himself before getting a WWE Championship match?
This week on RAW, Bobby Lashley came out with MVP to talk about his loss to Kofi Kingston. Lashley and MVP believed that Drew McIntyre was the main problem and wanted him out of the championship picture.
McIntyre interrupted Lashley and MVP and so did Kofi Kingston. Both men made their case for a title match against The All-Mighty before Adam Pearce booked a match between the two superstars.
The match ended in disqualification after Lashley and MVP attacked both men late in the match. It was good to watch two top superstars compete for a chance to challenge the WWE Champion. However, does Kofi need to prove himself after already pinning Lashley in a non-title match?
Kofi did get some assistance from The Scottish Warrior to pick up the victory. However, his victory should have automatically taken him to the WWE Championship picture.
Putting McIntyre back in the title scene after losing a few times does not make much sense. Why does Kofi need to prove himself once again to get a shot at the title he never got a rematch for?
