WWE set things up for WrestleMania 35 with a couple of developments on last night’s SmackDown.
Kofi Kingston will officially challenge for Daniel Bryan’s WWE Championship at WrestleMania after Big E & Xavier Woods won his way into the match. Big E & Woods took part in a tag team gauntlet match, defeating Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson, Shinsuke Nakamura & Rusev, Cesaro & Sheamus, The Usos, and Daniel Bryan & Rowan.
The Usos forfeited their match and cut a promo wishing New Day luck.
Charlotte Flair will be the SmackDown Women’s Champion heading into her WrestleMania main event triple threat match against Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch. Charlotte submitted Asuka with the Figure Eight last night to win the title.
