WWE: The September 17 SmackDown episode completely shocked viewers and Kofi Kingston, when Brock Lesnar returned to the Blue brand. Not only did The Beast make a comeback, but his advocate Paul Heyman also presented a challenge for the WWE Championship in front of Kofi Kingston.
Kingston accepted the challenge, calling himself a fighting champion. Later we got to see a small action between Kofi and Brock. Brock smashed Kingston through his finisher, F5. Now in the special episode of SmackDown on October 4, the championship match was seen between the two.
Defeating Brock Lassner is a very difficult task. It is almost impossible for any superstar to beat him. If seen, it is hard for Kofi to defeat Brock, but WWE can plan big things to surprise the fans.
Let’s have a look at 4 big reasons why Brock Lassner should be defeated by Kofi Kingston.
SmackDown has a lot of Heal Champions
The number of Heel Champions in the Blue brand increased significantly following The Revival’s victory at Clash of Champions.
Heal Superstars holds Smackdown’s Women’s Championship, Tag Team Championship, and Intercontinental Championship. Kofi Kingston is the only face champion because of this.
If The Beast beats Kofi in SmackDown then the brand will have all the Heel Champions. If all the heels are champions, then all future storylines will look the same. Because of this New Day member should defeat Lassner.
Kofi Kingston and New Day benefit WWE in merchandise
Merchandise is WWE’s biggest source of revenue. WWE has produced top stars such as Roman Rance, John Cena, Becky Lynch, and Daniel Bryan.
For all these superstar fans, the company sells different items related to superstars. Merchandise includes items like a T-shirt, Cap, championship belt, etc.
Like all these superstars, there are many fans of The New Day who like to watch them very much on TV. New Day’s entire group sells different types of merchandise. The power of positivity, pancakes and booty-dew T-shirts are quite famous.
WWE is benefitting significantly after Kingston becoming champions. If they lose the title, it could harm their popularity and cause major damage to WWE. The company will never make a loss. Because of this, Kofi must defeat Brock.
Kofi’s title rain has been good and should not end like this
Kofi Kingston defeated Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 35 to capture the WWE Championship. He has since defended his championship in every PPV.
Kingston defended the championship against big superstars like Kevin Owens, Dolph Ziggler, Daniel Bryan, Samoa Joe, and Randy Orton.
All these superstars gave great matches with Kofi. Talking about Brock, he gives short matches. He comes into the ring and smashes the superstars in a few minutes. It looks like Beast will beat Kofi very quickly and win the championship.
If that happens, Kingston’s confidence will fall completely. Kingston has given good matches as champions and has presented himself as a great champion. Their title rain cannot end this way. Brock must be defeated because of this as well.
Beast Doesn’t Defend His Championship
Superstars like John Cena and Daniel Bryan are considered legendary champions as they always agree to defend the title. Brock Lassner last became champion in 2014. He won the championship by defeating John Cena at SummerSlam.
After winning the title, he defended the championship just 2 times in his 224-day title rain. He then lost the championship to WrestleMania 31. Something similar happened with the Universal Champion. He appeared to us defending very few championships.
If we become Beast champions then we will see the WWE Championship on very rare occasions and this could cause future losses to the company. If Kofi remains the champion, he can fight a championship match in every PPV.
