Kofi Kingston revealed on the latest edition of the After the Bell Podcast, that it was Daniel Bryan who pushed for him to be given a main event WrestleMania title shot.
"He pushed for that to happen, because the plans weren’t for me to be at WrestleMania,” Kofi said. “I’m not sure who it was for Daniel to face, but it wasn’t me, and Daniel went in and went to bat for me and the situation for the title match between us to happen. So he had a big part in it too. He was saying, a testament to his state of mind as far as advancing the business and doing the right thing for the people and for the best match and product for the people to take in. So kudos to Daniel Bryan."
