@WrestleVotes on Twitter noted that Kofi Kingston staying in the ring for close to an hour during the gauntlet was a story originally planned for Mustafa Ali. Kingston has also earned himself a renewed momentum backstage.
Hearing that the Kofi - Gauntlet story, with him being in the ring nearly an hour was the same story that was to unfold with Mustafa Ali.— WrestleVotes (@WrestleVotes) 14 February 2019
However, given circumstances, an opportunity has now opened for Kofi, and he has momentum. Both w/ fans & backstage after his performance.
