Prior to last night’s SmackDown, in a new interview with Sportskeeda, Kofi Kingston was asked about his WWE Championship storyline with Daniel Bryan, when asked who he would like to defend against as champion, Kofi said the following:
“Jeez. What’s way further ahead than I’m even thinking about. I feel like I’m just trying to get there first. Tonight I have a huge gauntlet match where if I win I’ll be able to compete for the WWE Championship. I’m facing 5 other fantastic WWE Superstars.
So, I want to climb this mountain first. And if I’m lucky enough to win this situation, then I’ll climb the mountain of facing a fantastic competitor in Daniel Bryan and after I beat that guy, then I’ll start thinking about who I want to defend against. But it’s a long, long way away man. I can’t even think about that right now.”
